St Moritz Ski Holidays

Ten minutes’ drive apart, you can ski the two mountains of Corvatsch and Corviglia on the same lift pass. With a little more time, I’d recommend combining St Moritz with another resort, travelling via the famous Glacier Express.

This much-loved resort is a place to be seen. It hosts several world-famous events and is bursting with bars and boutiques.

Perched beside Lake St Moritz in the beautiful Engadin Valley, this is one of the sunniest and most scenic resorts in Switzerland. It’s host to a string of annual events, including the Polo World Cup, White Turf horse races and the Cresta Run.

The pistes are spread over four mountains, with Corviglia and Corvatsch the main ski areas. St Moritz also has some of the finest cross-country tracks in Switzerland, so is a good place to try a new discipline.

The town is renowned for its chic shops and gourmet restaurants, while the après bars are lively and stylish. Our favourite evening activity however, is the Friday night skiing on Corvastsch - start with a fondue on the mountain, then ski down freshly-groomed slopes to the Alpetta or Hossa bar for a night of schnapps and dancing.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

St Moritz is known for its high-end hotels but those in town can be overpriced and, to be honest, rather snobby. Instead, we feature just one property: the ski-in ski-out Nira Alpina. A ten-minute shuttle from St Moritz, in the small town of Surlej, it’s excellent value, with direct access to Corvatsch’s slopes.

We’ve stayed at the Nira Alpina many times over the years, so call us for first-hand advice and we’ll recommend the best rooms for you.

Lovely empty slopes. Spread out town. Bus system not easy to work out.

We should have stayed at Andermatt longer to explore more of the off piste opportunities - Will probably not be back in St Moritz. Should have spent less time here and more in Andermatt.

Hotel Nira Alpina at Corvatsch is an excellent hotel with two good restaurants, an atmospheric bar, good spa facilities, a mediocre gym only lacking a swimming pool. The staff were friendly and professional and were keen to make our stay enjoyable. The rest of the village is small with limited alternative restaurants etc, so the hotel needs to be good. The hotel is right opposite the Corvatsch gondola providing good access. Skiing is limited at Corvatsch but there are 3 or 4 good red runs which we enjoyed, on Friday nights there is floodlit skiing which was an interesting experience (the longest in Switzerland apparently). Access to the wider Corvatsch area is limited with more then a fair share of drag lifts. Access to St Moritz was via a 10 minute bus ride which was better then it sounds, with warm buses every 15 minutes or so with Swiss reliability. St Moritz has plenty of pistes with good lift access throughout. The resort is dominated by red runs, black runs are limited but there are three or four. Off-piste opportunities were very limited on our visit (Jan 2016). In summary, the hotel offers great accommodation and relatively cost effective access to St Moritz which is predominantly a red run resort with great snow making facilities to help the pistes when the weather is dodgy.
