From 4 to 10 March 2017, Klosters is all about cross-country skiing. Excitement and entertainment are guaranteed in more than 30 different races (skating, classic) featuring various age categories. More than 1000 participants are expected to attend.
The Cross-country ski Masters are a series of competitions by Swiss-Ski (mass sport), which in Switzerland are part of the Swiss Loppet events. Similar Masters Races are held in 30 countries worldwide. Coordination is made via the World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association WMA.
Since 1980, the Masters World Cup poses a yearly comparison of these countries' best Masters skiers. In 2016 the event was held in Vuokatti (FIN), in 2018 Minneapolis (USA) is official host.
For Masters skiers, the World Cup equals a World Championship. Thus, unofficially, these races hold the title of seniors' World Championship.
Klosters is a snow-reliable cross-country skiing paradise located on 1'200 metres above sea level boasting around 20 km of cross-country ski trails. Having executed various Swiss Championship races as well as the Cross-country ski Continental Cup, the organising committee holds broad experience. The last held races were the Swiss Masters in March 2016 on the original race courses of the 2017 World Cup.
