Cross-country skiing with Sven

It's Nordic time!

Hi, if you didn't know, I'm Sven Johansen, a true cross-country expert from Norway. A living legend and star of the Nordic skiing scene. Having retired from active professional sport, I am now an ambassador for cross-country skiing and biathlon in Lenzerheide, a disciplined consultant and coach. I know every trick and make everyone fit - whether beginner, amateur, joker or professional athlete. My ice-cold nature and strict principles are part of the secret of my success. But don't worry: I never miss out on fun either. Are you ready to make the cross-country ski runs unsafe with me? It's Nordic time!

Sven's Cross-country challenge

Just collecting kilometres on the cross-country trail is too boring for you? My cross-country challenge offers you the perfect alternative. In the whole cross-country network between Parpan and Lantsch/Lenz there are ten stations, which bring variety to cross-country skiing. Whether big or small, beginner or professional, my cross-country challenge offers fun for everyone.

How does it work?
Quite simple. On the cross-country panorama map you can see where the posts are. You can find out what each post contains directly on the spot. It's supposed to be a little surprise, at least the first time. You can recognize the guards by the fact that a plaque with my face is placed on it, on which it says what to do.

Small tip: Bring your mobile phone with you.

Sven's Nordic challenge

Anyone can take part, whether beginner or advanced. The only condition: at least one team member is needed, because the start will be in teams of two to four. For all teams of companies running long, there is a special classification.
