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.

Accommodation

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.

This modern hotel featuring beautiful alpine design, is connected to the Corvatsch cable car station via a private walkway - and you can ski right back to the hotel.

Glad we chose a high altitude resort given another Christmas with a lack of snow. Conditions were good and excellent lift system, Great ski school for the children.

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.

When looking for snow-sure resorts, altitude and latitude play a big part. All of our...
