“The January Madness part, with events every weekend, in Season IX moves to Switzerland and the marvellous Engadine valley for La Diagonela. The event has become a well-known stop in the tour, attracting more and more recreational skiers as well, with the start in Zuoz then winding through almost the whole Engadine valley passing beautiful villages such as La Punt, Bever, Samedan, Celerina before reaching the climb and sprint close to St Moritz. Then continuing via Val Roseg to Pontresina and back to Zuoz for the now famous finish line on the old main square. The event is the second leg in the Visma Alp Trophy competition.”
