Where the road ends... the journey of emotion begins

Surrounded by the amphitheatre of snow-capped Alps, the lake is not only one of the treasures that have helped make St. Moritz the legendary premier winter destination in the world. It is also the most incredible and spectacular stage that nature could create for The I.C.E. St. Moritz.

At the time of the event, the lake’s icy crust is solid enough to be safe for those driving over it, and at the same time thin enough to give a shiver at the thought of being suspended above the icy waves of a liquid abyss.

The quality of cars, the location, and the atmosphere was simply second to none, and we can’t wait to do it all again

In this delicate balance lies the whole exciting aspect of The Ice St. Moritz, which allows participants to feel at ease without giving up the sense of adventure that makes the two days so exciting.

It is only when the gentlemen-drivers drive their cars over the access ramp to the lake, at the precise moment when their tyres bite into the crunching snow that lays on the ice, that they really realise the feat they are accomplishing.

Over the past decades, a special society, with the help of the renowned glaciologist Felix Keller, has turned the study of the frozen lake from art into science. 

Drivers know that as soon as the thickness of the ice reaches 27 centimetres, it is tested for safety. By the time their cars step onto the frozen expanse, its thickness is solid enough to guarantee stability. However… a vague ancestral fear vibrates in the soul, giving the adventure that ultimate touch of pushing a limit, of courage and conquering a new, never imagined goal.

Despite all the efforts we made since 5am this morning in order to have an 100% ready lake Village tomorrow, due to the exceptional snowfall occurred in the past 16 hours pouring more than 60cm of fresh snow, we are sorry to inform you that the event has been cancelled for safety reasons
