Skiing in the 70s was almost a different sport than we know it today. The development was still far removed from modern carving technology. Wearing a ski helmet was still unthinkable and the lifts were rather rough than convenient. But even back then, the varied offer in the holiday region of Lenzerheide attracted numerous winter sports enthusiasts and recreation seekers to the mountains.

Immerse yourself with us in the winter world of yesteryear and discover Lenzerheide as it was then. Do you still remember ski ballet or mogul skiing? Two very popular sports back then.

1970 - cross-country skiing back then

The 24 hours race of Lenzerheide-Valbella. A cross-country skiing race that demanded everything from the participants. Twenty-four hours on the cross-country ski trail saps the strength even of trained athletes. The equipment was rather rudimentary and not comparable with today's high-performance equipment. Today, the holiday region of Lenzerheide is a top destination for cross-country skiing and biathlon.
