Fur coats sit next to sporting ski jackets. It's the mix. The snow, the frozen lake, the first-class events. Pop-up restaurants and shopping like in New York. Untouched nature. The peaceful image deceives. See Cresta Run. If you are old, you can rest at the 5 star hotel. Not correct. In St. Moritz it's: »Party hard«.
Ears protectors on. Here we go. Oh, how beautiful. St. Moritz from a different perspective. Perhaps in-between there is a pit stop for a glass of champagne at the top station. The other guests are thinking…. Who's that arriving? ....
Everyone likes to be child again from time to time. Why not? It is real fun to speed around with a Piste Bully. Beforehand, learn interesting facts about the slope preparation, the gondola operation and the snow production. Then show what´s in you.
Buckle up, hold on tight, fly away - like an eagle. The Engadin gives you wings. What a feeling!
»No risk, no fun« is the motto of the rapid taxi on the former Olympia Bob Run. Incidentally, the only natural bobsleigh run in the world. »Men only« are allowed on the Cresta Run and crazy enough, to plunge headlong into the dangerous thrills.
In-house ski shop and ski school. Within walking distance from the 5 star hotel is the Corviglia moutain railway station. The slope is known for sun and fantastic views - not only on the chocolate Türmli in the ski bus. No Softie? Then up and away to the Corvatsch.
If you prefer winter sports from a safe distance take a horse-drawn carriage - like Alfred Hitchcock during his St. Moritz-holidays at the Palace. With a thermos of mulled wine and sweet treats from the pastry chef. Idyllic. Leave the work to everyone else.
Ever since Pippa cross-country skiing in St. Moritz is »en vogue« again. As sweet as the Duchess of Cambridge's sister looks, to participate in the Ski Marathon is no picnic. Maybe just explore the cross-country ski runs in comfort?
Hiking sounds so old-fashioned. Winter hiking on Corviglia however can be wonderfully stylish combined with a visit to Reto Mathis or a break in a beach chair on El Paradiso.
Tobogganing in the Engadin is not for wimps. Don't forget the helmet. Slow speed is for elsewhere. Adrenaline rush and fun guaranteed! The route Preda-Bergün is recommended for beginners; Muottas Muragl or Darlux for bold & advanced guests.
Chess on ice: Curling is considered a tactical sport with many refinements. If you're a beginner on the ice you can get help from our Curling-Master.
If zipping down a mountain head first seems like fun to you, the exhilarating Cresta Run should be on your bucket list…
