Area Profile

St. Moritz

St. Moritz is one of the most world renowned holiday resorts. Chic, elegant and exclusive with a mainly cosmopolitan ambiance it is situated at 5624ft above sea level. The "dry, sparkling champagne climate" has become legendary and the famous sun of St. Moritz shines on average of 322 days a year. St Moritz is split into two parts, Dorf and Bad. Dorf is the main area with two main streets housing some expensive shops. The spa resort of Bad can be found around one end of the lake.
 
The name "St. Moritz" has become so popular, that it has now been registered as a trademark and internationally copyright protected.

The resort of St Moritz is one of the larger in Switzerland, and has direct access to 350km of downhill pistes with 88 individual pistes served by 24 lifts. The most challenging runs are those at Lagalb and Diavolezza. There are many intermediate runs in Corviglia and Corvatsch, including the Hahnensee run from Giand'Alva to St Moritz Bad. This is not the best spot to learn to ski as you may feel limited with not too many slopes to take you from absolute beginner to lower intermediate.
 
There are a wide variety of pubs, clubs and bars along with a huge choice of accomodation options.
