St. Moritz will host the bobsleigh, skeleton, luge and speed skating competitions on the 12th, 13th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th and 22nd of January 2020.
St. Moritz resonates with style, elegance and sport. The Graubünden resort in Switzerland is one of the most popular destinations in the world, and has hosted the Winter Olympic Games twice, namely in 1928 and 1948.
Top events on the frozen lake of Lake St. Moritz have long become extravagant highlights in St. Moritz's remarkable calendar of events and has so far hosted five Alpine World Ski Championships and 24 Bobsleigh World Championships.
The Lausanne 2020 Bobsleigh, Skeleton and Tobogganing competitions will take place on the oldest and only natural ice bobsleigh track in the world, the legendary St. Moritz-Celerina Olympia Bob Run. Every year, and for more than a century, it is built by hand within three weeks of competitions. There will be an opening for the speed skating races which for the first time for an Olympic event, will take place on the ice of the natural frozen lake, Lake St. Moritz, where in winter the traditional St. Moritz events such as horse racing, polo and cricket are held.
