Getting out on the trails when and how cross-country skiers want is one of the advantages of this winter sport. Illuminated night trails in Davos and Klosters make it possible to go for a run after work, as long as it's fun and good for the body. On the regular trails, on the other hand, there are limits. The operating hours end at 5 pm. After that, the cross-country ski team is on the road with three grooming machines on the 175-kilometre network of trails to get the classic trail and the skating trails back into shape.
Safety is at risk
In recent weeks, however, people have been outwith headlamps outside these operating hours. This not only leads to a loss of quality of the freshly groomed trails for everyone the next day, it also endangers the safety of the athletes, reports Hitsch Capol, the Davos trail manager. When reversing or pushing snow into the track, accidents can occur in the dark. Capol therefore hopes that there will be more awareness of the operating hours and that the night trail will be used.
So you can also cross-country ski in the evening
From Monday to Friday, the night trail in Davos is lit from 6.30 to 8.30 pm. The track into the Dischma Valley is also open daily from 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. for a warm-up with a headlamp. In Klosters, a 3.2-kilometre-long night trail awaits, which is lit every Tuesday and Thursday between 6.30 pm and 8.30 pm. In addition, a section of the trail up to Alp Garfiun opens every Thursday. Although it is not illuminated, it is runnable with a headlamp.
