St Moritz - Information

Resort Information  St Moritz

Twice the venue for the Winter Olympics and four-time host of Alpine Ski World Championships, St Moritz is a resort with a pedigree almost second to none. The British invented Winter Alpine holidays here 140 years ago and whilst the resort is now packed with modern buildings it still oozes class of a bye-gone age. The skiing is great, but with around half of its Winter visitors not actually taking to the slopes, there is also plenty to do in town, not least in its shops, where upmarket designer labels are the order of the day. St.Moritz Dorf is the vibrant main town, with St.Moritz Bad being a quieter area near the spectacular frozen lake. Whilst there is plenty of five-star finery to be had in the resort, there is still accommodation to suit all budgets, with a variety of hotels and chalets, available for the week or in some cases weekend breaks. St Moritz allows you to rub shoulders with the glitterati and also make turns on some of the World’s chicest slopes.St. Moritz offers 350kms of piste on the six ski areas of the Upper Engadine valley, which are all well connected by train and bus (included in the lift pass) and serviced by 56 lifts. The steep sided nature of the valley and the spread out nature of the resort may make it more suited to intermediates and advanced skiers than beginners, but there are still a few places to learn in, not least at Corviglia, which is the main ski area and is also the nearest to town. Intermediates will love Corviglia for its lovely cruising terrain, along with the Diavolezza area and the red runs down from the Piz Corvatsch. Advanced skiers will find something of interest in each area, including the 8km long Hahnensee run at Corvatsch and the thrilling Schwarzer Hang at Diavolezza. With a guide you can explore some of the most unused off-piste areas in Europe, with perhaps some of the best and most dramatic running down from Piz Nair, a craggy 3,000m peak accessed by cable car.
