White Turf Horse Racing In St Moritz

St Moritz White Turf ‘Grand Prix’ Weekend

4 Night Package from £1,450

GEFRORENER ST. MORITZERSEE
Thursday 13th to Monday 17th February 2025

On February 16th, the frozen Lake St. Moritz is transformed into an international hotspot. On the racecourse, established jockeys and their noble thoroughbreds will be showing fast-paced gallop races as well as the world-exclusive skijoring.

Join more than 30,000 people travelling to the Engadin mountains to enjoy the thrilling atmosphere at the horse races on frozen Lake St. Moritz. International professional jockeys race their spirited horses at terrific speed across the snow, causing the air to buzz with excitement. Undisputed highlight is the skijöring, a spectacular form of racing found only in St. Moritz: competitors are on skis, pulled by riderless thoroughbreds at speeds of up to 50 km/h along the 2,700-metre course. The feat demands equal measures of courage, skill, strength and fitness.

The large tent city, covering an area of 130,000 sq.m, offers attractions to guests of all ages including live music, gastronomic delicacies, shopping and a children´s play area. A colourful crowd of horse lovers, jockeys, trainers, owners, helpers, visitors, locals and celebrity guests ensures a glamorous atmosphere that has made the legendary event one of the highlights of the winter season.

Like many sporting events, Horse Racing in St Moritz is subject to the correct weather conditions and the lake being sufficiently frozen. The racing has only been cancelled twice in the last 30 meetings so it is very likely you will see the racing but in the event of racing being cancelled, the show goes on with music, bars, hospitality and entertainment.
