St. Moritz ski resort
Skiing in the Upper Engadine, the home of winter sports! Four large and seven small ski resorts make the St. Moritz region one of the most extensive winter wonderlands in Switzerland. Around 350 kilometres on 88 slopes await you. Modern mountain railways and chairlifts ensure minimum wait times and maximum efficiency in an area that is legendary for its versatility.
Plenty of sunny days and guaranteed snow
The sun on your face all day long – the Upper Engadine is truly spoiled when it comes to beautiful weather. Thanks to an altitude of 1,800 to 3,303 metres, the region around St. Moritz is guaranteed to be covered in snow and the descents on powder snow ensure unique ski and snowboard experience. When the temperatures drop, winter shows off all its class: as soon as it gets cold enough, the air in the Engadine begins to glisten as if it were made of millions of delicate snowflakes. For these moments of pure bliss, the locals have a name: champagne weather.
Four large ski areas in the St. Moritz region
Whether you're a beginner or an advanced skier – in the Engadine, every skier or snowboarder will find the slope that's just right for them. And those who enjoy variety will also be well served by the four large ski resorts.
Corvatsch – a freerider's paradise
The ski resort on Corvatsch is located above Silvaplana, around 8 kilometres from St. Moritz. With its 120 kilometres of slopes, it's sure to excite ambitious snow sports enthusiasts all the way until the end of April. The cable car takes you up to 3,303 metres in altitude to the highest mountain station in the Eastern Alps. Here the descent starts on the red slope with a breathtaking view of the Bernina massif.
Corvatsch is particularly well-known among freestylers and freeriders. Corvatsch Park is one of the largest snow parks in the Alps and hosts national and international competitions.
Corviglia – the ski resort in a class of its own
160 kilometres of slopes on the sunny side of the Engadine – what more could you want? Not least because of the perfectly groomed slopes, Corviglia is one of the most prestigious ski resorts in the world. Both beginners and advanced skiers will get their money's worth on St. Moritz's local mountain, Piz Nair, which is over 3,000 metres high. Modern cable cars and the historic funicular take skiers and snowboarders from St. Moritz Dorf or St. Moritz Bad as well as the neighbouring communities of Celerina and Suvretta directly to the slopes.
Diavolezza/Lagalb – on the slopes of the «she-devil»
The Diavolezza/Lagalp ski resort is an Eldorado for sporty skiers and snowboarders. It consists of 35 kilometres of challenging red and black slopes. There are no easy descents to be found here. The absolute highlight is the ten-kilometre descent over the Morteratsch Glacier. As a natural slope, it leads through a wilderness of snow and ice and is considered the longest glacier descent in Switzerland.
The valley station of the ski resort can be reached from St. Moritz in a good 30 minutes on the world-famous Bernina Express.
Zuoz – the skiing paradise for families
Around 20 minutes from St. Moritz lies the cosy, sun-drenched ski resort of Zuoz. Children who love snow sports can attempt their first curves on the practice slopes. But experienced skiers and snowboarders will also enjoy the 32 kilometres of slopes. You can pause your descent on the timed slope and practise freestyle acrobatics in the snow park.
Small ski resorts in the St. Moritz region
In addition to the four large ski resorts of the Upper Engadine, seven hidden little gems offer plenty of ski and snowboarding enjoyment for families and beginners. Here kids can attempt their first curves on the magic carpet or practice whizzing down the slope:
