As one might expect from the oldest winter sports destination in the world, St Moritz has a reputation for being a qlitzy and glamorous destination, but does in fact offer something for most holidaymakers. Although the town itself is not particularly picturesque, the views of the surrounding mountains are stunning and the resort offers an wide variety of both on and off-slope activities, from the more traditional shops and restaurants, to obscure events such as cricket on snow.
There are a wide variety of shops and restaurants in St Moritz, offering everything from essentials to designer labels and burgers to gourmet cuisine. Other off slope activities include horse-drawn sleigh rides, winter walking trails, tandem paragliding, a casino, several spas and wellness centres, indoor golf and a collection of galleries and museums.
Thrillseekers can try their hand on the Olympia Bob Run, or even the world famous Cresta Run, while those of a more nervous disposition can sit back and watch the pros in one of the regular races, held between Christmas and the beginning of March.

St Moritz offers 350km of pistes, split into three different areas. Above the resort itself is Corviglia, which mainly consists of fairly easy cruising runs that make their way back into town. Slightly further afield, the Corvatsch-Furtschellas and Diavolezza areas offer more challenging terrain and are the best freeride areas, however, be prepared for a journey to the slopes.
St Moritz is ideal for intermediates and snowboarders, with plenty of cruising runs, some good freeride terrain and a varied and well maintained snowpark on Corviglia, however, beginners may find progression from the nursery slopes challenging with many of the intermediate runs having steeper sections.
