One of the oldest Swiss ski resorts, St. Moritz is famous for its distinctive climate and long ski season.
The original Swiss ski resort, St. Moritz has welcomed winter tourists for over 150 years. Its success stems from the champagne climate of the Upper Engadine – dry and sunny, with a high degree of snow certainty. The ski region of St. Moritz also contains the Corvatsch, at a vertiginous 3,303m one of the Alps' highest summit stations, which offers a long night ski run on the Corvatsch. As a destination, St. Moritz does well with its activity programme off the slopes: visitors can try skating and curling on the resort’s many ice rinks, give themselves a fright on a toboggan run or try snow-shoeing and cross country skiing. There’s a packed programme of events that lasts all winter long – in particular, the White Turf horse races, Snow Polo World Cup and the World Cup Bob and Skeleton attract the crowds here.
