St. Moritz is more than just a holiday resort. It was also the birthplace of Alpine winter tourism and has twice hosted the Winter Olympics.
It has acquired a glamorous reputation with the world famous Cresta Run and winter polo events among other things. Jet set night life and Michelin star restaurants can be found but it also has something to offer most discerning skiers if you delve further.. Guests from all over the world appreciate the modern Alpine lifestyle, characterised by top-class restaurants that can satisfy gourmet demands even by the side of the slopes, hotels that set standards in every category, and events of international calibre. The Via Serlas guarantees great shopping in a small space, though you can also find local specialities like the famous Engadine nut tart just around the corner.
For winter sports enthusiasts there are 350 kilometres of pistes with a state-of-the-art infrastructure in the surrounding area. St. Moritz's 'house mountain', the Corviglia, boasts the steepest start slope in Switzerland with the Piz Nair Wall's 100 per cent vertiginous drop. Toboggan riders plunge down the icy run which is one of the oldest natural ice bob runs in the world. For winter hikers there are 150 km of winter walking trails and for cross-country skiers there is a track network of about 200 km. The snowboard fun park, curling and altitude training are just some of the other winter sports facilities.
In addition to the three large ski areas on the spacious slopes of the Corviglia, Corvatsch/Furtschellas and Diavolezza/Lagalb, you shouldn’t miss the more laid-back pistes on the doorstep of the charming Engadin villages. Beginners, especially, are in for a treat, while for families, Zuoz has long been known as the ultimate child-friendly winter sports destination.
