Best tips for St. Moritz - Corviglia
St Moritz is Switzerland’s definitive ‘exclusive’ winter resort: glitzy, fashionable and, above all, the place to be seen – a place for an all-round winter holiday, with an unrivalled array of wacky diversions such as cricket on snow, and countless festivals. It has long been popular with upper-crust Brits, who come for the sledging. Well, OK: for the world-famous Cresta Run, which isn’t quite the same thing. But, like all such smart resorts, it makes a perfectly good destination for anyone. These days, it even has a public swimming pool. The town of St Moritz is a bit of a blot on the landscape; but that landscape is truly spectacular. Our skiing here is regularly interrupted by the need to stand and gaze, and once installed on the right terrace we take some shifting. St Moritz is at the heart of the upper Engadin – the remote, high valley of the river En, which becomes the Austrian river Inn (as in Innsbruck). The valley bottom is filled by a chain of lakes, one of which separates the two parts of St Moritz. On a steep hillside above the lake, Dorf is the fashionable main town. Beside the lake is the more ordinary spa resort, St Moritz Bad. The skiing is in several separate sectors; only one, Corviglia, is reachable directly from the resort. In winter the lake is used for eccentric activities including horse and greyhound racing, show jumping, polo, golf and even cricket. And there’s a whole mountain (Muottas Muragl) set aside for not skiing – read ‘Off the slopes’ at the end of the chapter. The upper Engadin is superb for walking and cross-country skiing, which is very big here; the Engadin Ski Marathon attracts over 11,000 entries. The Corviglia slopes are shared with Celerina, down the valley (described in this chapter). And there are other bases along the valleys. There is a fabulously scenic railway from Zürich – a reader tips the dining car – but it’s quicker to drive. A car is handy around the resort, too: the bus service is covered by the lift pass but it gets crowded at peak times and a car greatly speeds up visits to the more distant mountains. Trips are possible to Davos and other places; you get a half-price pass in Livigno, Samnaun/Ischgl and other resorts. Part of the attraction is that there is a strong Italian flavour to the area – lots of Italian visitors, workers, food and wine.
- Wonderful panoramic scenery
- Extensive intermediate slopes
- High, and fairly snow-sure
- Off-slope diversions second to none (and a whole mountain dedicated to non-skiing activities)
- A sizeable town, with little traditional Alpine character and some big block buildings
- Several unlinked mountains
- Runs on home mountain mostly fairly easy and lacking variety
- Can be pricey, as you’d expect from such a fashionable resort
