Pissfit Presents – St Moritz – Engiden Nordic Ski Race

Pissfit Tours - Category 2

2 Bottle Tour

Some of the Pissfit Founding Members have formed a great annual tradition to participate in a Nordic Ski race somewhere cool each year. This year it was Switzerland again, but in the famous ski resort of St Moritz. The race we chose was the Engiden Nordic race, which was 50km but shortened due to low snowfall on the track at the bottom of the valley. We were very pleased with the shortened version.

The weather was super cold with the race start hovering around -18 degrees celsius.

It was a hard day out for the Two Johnnies who weren’t exactly race fit and also had not yet perfected the nordic ski technique. Danny however nailed it but admittedly he is much fitter these days and could now pass as a pro cross-country skier.  The race finished in a beautiful little mountain village called Zuoz. Unbelievably the top guys finished in around 2 hours which was very humbling.

We were up the back of this pack. In fact, we started 5 mins after the gun.
