    Please find below some additional information for St Moritz Trisutto training camps.

    When and where do we meet?
    We meet at 6:45am sharp, Monday morning, outside the swimming pool entrance in St Moritz.
    Please be on time. Please bring swim items. No need to bring run items on Monday morning.

    If you can also please print, sign and bring the Trisutto camp liability waiver with you to this Monday morning swim workout.

    What is the swimming pool address?
    The pool is locked on this map

    The address is
    Via Mezdi 17
    CH-7500 St. Moritz

    What is the fee for entry to the pool?
    We have negotiated a discounted pool entry pass, that is also valid outside of our swim hours so you can return to the pool anytime during your week as often as you like (includes the outdoor hot tub / whirlpool for recovery). The fee for the pass is below, to be paid when you collect your pass from the Ovaverva front desk ideally on the day before camp starts (i.e. collect Sunday if possible). Ovaverva is open during public hours 10am-10pm.

    7 day pass, unlimited entry to swimming pool, CHF 60
    7 day pass, unlimited entry to swimming, 2x Spa entrance, 1x sports massage CHF 198
    4 month pass, unlimited entry to swimming, CHF 160

    There is a CHF 50 deposit for swim passes, that is refunded when the pass is returned.

    You can pick up your swim pass at the front desk of the Ovaverva pool during regular opening times. Please collect your swim pass on Sunday, the day before camp begins.

    They have a list with all the athlete names on it, and should have it ready. The pass can be paid cash or with card. There is a deposit of CHF 50.- for the wristband.

    * Please note: At least 10 days before camp starts, you will need to e-mail with your date of birth, nationality.

    What clothing should I bring?
    Please bring warm clothing to run and ride in, as well as walking around in. Being in the mountains the weather can be cool, and can be changeable even in summer. Roads here feature long descends so wind vest and rain jacket are mandatory!

    What bike should I bring?
    Please bring the bike you are most comfortable on, and that you do the most training on. The majority of riding will be on the flat, although there are mountain passes only a few minutes away.

    If you are driving to camp, and you have a turbo / indoor / roll bicycle trainer, you are welcome to bring it with you – as a back up riding option.

    If you want to book a bike fit, please also bring spare partes like different spacers, stems or saddles if any. Please e-mail to check on availability and price.

    Are there bikes shops in St Moritz?
    Yes there are, but please have your bike in excellent working order before traveling. There is a sports / bike shop below the pool for minor servicing and parts etc. Suvretta bike and sports store

    Where is the local grocery store?

    There is a Denner (cheapest option) grocery store next to the athletics track. Denner grocery store

    Within two minutes walk of that is the COOP grocery store.

    Please note grocery stores close at 6pm on Saturday, and are closed ALL DAY on Sundays.

    What is the training plan for the week?
    We swim most mornings at 6:50am.
    We then run or ride, or do both.
    We will sometimes do 3 workouts in one day e.g. 7am swim, 11am run, 3:30pm bike.
    Other days we may do 2 workouts. e.g. swim, then long ride or long run.

    We decide each morning based on many things including fatigue, upcoming races, and the weather.

    We also have some additional camp frequently asked questions and also there are camp related FAQ’s in this camps forum.

    Can I ride my bicycle to the pool?
    Bicycles can not be taken into the pool. There are bicycle racks on the street, but while St Moritz is a very safe place, we still do not advise parking expensive bicycles on the street.

    Can I ride my bicycle to the athletics track?
    You can not bring your bicycle inside the athletics track fence. You can park your bicycle against the fence, on the outside, and a small lock gives peace of mind. This is what many of our pro athletes do if riding to the track. If you are staying in town, then the track will be no more than 10 minutes easy warm up run away (and likely much closer).

    Training apparel
    Our Trisutto range of sports training and racing apparel is available to purchase online

    Athletes make their own travel and accommodation arrangements.

    Kempinski Hotel
    In 2016, is very excited to partner with the Kempinski Hotel, St Moritz as our official hotel, to offer our athletes a 5-star experience with world class training conditions and facilities. The Kempinski will be offering discounted rates to Trisutto campers throughout the summer.

    Prices available:

    Classic Single Room 240 CHF
    Resort Double Room 348 CHF

    Access to full facilities at one of the world’s best hotels.

    To book contact Kempinski St Moritz and mention our camp to receive the special rates above.

    Two alternative hotels also close to the pool (400m walk) respectively are The Sonne Hotel and Laudinella Hotel They are also within 400m walk to the grocery stores (COOP and Denner).

    Both include buffet breakfast, and have good restaurants, but Laudinella is slightly closer to Ovaverva. Laudinella also includes a pass for unlimited swimming pool entry (athlete pool entry is 60 CHF for 6 days).

    Hotel Laudinella provide a free pick up from the train station if you email them and request this.

    Some athletes stay at the YHA, and they say it is very very good – they get to meet runners and cyclists who are basing themselves in St Moritz for summer training blocks. The German federation triathletes stayed there last summer. Is one option for reducing costs.

    For apartments we recommend the usual online booking sites.

    Zurich and Milan are close airports. The train from Zurich airport is approximately 3 hours. There is one change at Zurich central, and one change at Chur. It is a convenient and pleasant journey. The train station in St Moritz is about 1.5 km / 1 mile from the hotels above.
    Once in St Moritz you shouldn’t need a car. Only if you prefer to drive to St Moritz rather than take the train.
