The Village

St. Moritz is a big draw for skiers. It's one of the most traditional Alpine locations you'll find in Europe and its fantastic location means it receives over 300 days of sunshine per year as well as great snow records.

These elements, combined with the incredible Upper Engadine landscape, are the reason that this legendary resort has become synonymous with style, elegance and class over the years.

Often defined by charming, elegant and chic, St. Moritz benefits from a 'champagne climate' with constant sunshine over all sides of the resort, and, boasting 34 mountain restaurants, there's something for even the most discerning of tastes.

The Skiing

Feel the sun on your face as you power down the smooth slopes of the resort. You'll be in powder heaven with up to 350km of pistes and 25 modern lifts available - there's fun and excitement guaranteed for everyone!

The St. Moritz ski area is renowned for its variety,from free ride runs to spacious nursery slopes, it truly is the perfect place for the whole family to enjoy. For those experienced skiers, there is a World Cup run off Corviglia to St. Moritz Dorf for an adrenaline fuelled descent, and there are also some more difficult and adrenaline-pumping runs around Piz Nair, which can be accessed from the village.

For an exciting and delicious culinary treat, look no further than necessary, because our selected hotels offer some of the finest delicacies of the region.

From the natural and fresh ingredients of the Nira Alpina to the quality 6-course meals of the Kulm Hotel Restaurant, you  can eat like royalty without ever leaving your hotel. But, if you want to explore the other restaurants and bars in the region, we recommend the Ecco on Snow restaurant with their creative combinations of quality dishes.

There's much more to St. Moritz than just skiing, as there are plenty of other activities to choose from in the region.
