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.

The St. Moritz ski area

The St. Moritz ski region 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 and 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. 24 lifts take you up to the winter sports area at 3,057m.There are 155km of well prepared ski slopes to tempt all grades of skiers as well as 14 mountain restaurants. Early risers can head up the south facing mountain slopes at 7.45am to make their first turns on the untouched white carpet at sunrise!

Diavolezza-Lagalb A glacier landscape offering a world of adventure. At 4,049m, the Piz Bernina is the highest mountain in the Graubünden region and the Morteratsch/Isla Persa glacier run is the longest and most impressive in the Engadin. The slopes around the glacier chair lift and down to the valley can also be enjoyed by less experienced skiers. Directly opposite, the Lagalb gondolas ascend the King of Ski Mountains, which owes it title to its grandiose gradient. Full-moon skiing is regularly held on the Diavolezza.
