High up in the Swiss Alps is a valley abounding in snowy mountains, frozen lakes and magical light. This is a world where the wonders of nature provide a magnificent setting in which to enjoy winter sports activities or just to relax in peace and quiet and where the sun shines all year round.
St. Moritz is the world's oldest winter holiday destination, having welcomed visitors for over 150 years. It is a most fashionable resort in a beautiful setting - nestling on the lakeside beneath the 3,057m Piz Nair. St. Moritz has a lively centre full of high class shops and restaurants, offering everything from gourmet dining to traditional mountain fare. The neighbouring alpine village of Pontresina is worth a visit and offers great cross country skiing.

Engadin St. Moritz combines several
mountains, covering over 350km of prepared pistes making it the largest ski
region in Switzerland. The lift pass covers the whole area and also allows free
use of the ski bus or train linking all the ski areas. The high altitude guarantees
good snow cover even on the lower slopes.
Corvatsch has character and charisma –
its steep sides tower over the Engadin. Further up the valley, it joins the
neighbouring area of Furtschellas, Sils. As the slopes are mainly north facing
they provide the best conditions later in the season. As well as the
traditional slopes and pistes in this area, there are also challenging steep
descents offering tremendous fun for more experienced skiers.
Corvatsch-Furtschellas is also regarded as one of the best freeride regions in
the Alps. The Murtèl middle station has one of the largest snow parks
anywhere in Switzerland.
Corviglia is the largest skiing area in the Engadin. 22 lifts take you up to
the winter sports area at 3,057m.There are 163km of well prepared ski slopes to

the untouched white carpet at sunrise!
