Tour of the resorts

In the heart of Swiss Alps, the «cycling world toughest d+/km » one day race!

The race


Imagine a cycling enduro in the heart of Swiss Alps, offering an exceptional sport challenge linking the region’s ski stations in a spectacular environment. The so-called Tour des Stations became a reality for the first time in 2018 consisting of three different courses following the concept of the Marmotte Granfondo Series. Choose between distances of 220km, 140km or 50km -and the corresponding altitude differences of 7,400m, 4,700m or 2,000m. The courses feature « class of its own » climbs like the mythical Croix-de-Cœur, topping out at 2,174 metres with its last six kilometers on gravel.

In cooperation with the resorts of Verbier, Crans-Montana, Nendaz, Ovronnaz, Anzère, Vercorin, Nax, Saint-Martin, Hérémence, Thyon 2000, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz, and Cities of Conthey, Sion, Sierre and Martigny, the Tour des Stations crosses through the enchanting countryside of the Canton of Valais, its mountainous vineyards, picturesque nature, authentic villages and internationally renowned resorts.

The Tour des Stations has the ambition to become the reference of Swiss granfondo races, akin to the Marmottes Alpes in France and the Dolomites Marathon in Italy.
