Patrick and Lukas have been the masters behind the three flow trails in St. Moritz. However, with the new boom of newly built trails that call themselves flow trails, Lukas and Patrik's trails should really be called something else. Specially if you consider the riding experience their trails provide, the low environmental impact and the incredibly low cost of construction and, even more important, maintenance. These characteristics are the reason why Patrick is teaching trail builder in other Swiss resorts about sustainable trails and why Lukas is designing trails in Lebanon and Japan in 2015.
The site of their signature trails, the Corviglia mountain above the legendary resort town of St. Moritz, has up to this day remained a low key venue for mountain bikers. No big events, no competitions, no big advertisement or huge obstacles. Just an incredibly epic mountain to ride mountain bikes. And it just got one more feature that fits right into this philosophy. A small and beautiful skills area.
The skills area allows riders to practice their skills around the iconic Quattro bar. It features perfect berms, small rock gardens and flowing rollers, like you will find them on the flow trails that start from the same plattform.
Construction took two weeks and was executed for Engadin Mountains, the local lift company. Patrick and Lukas were responsible for planning, designing and building the skills area.
