With a local total of 80 km of perfectly manicured piste and a network of 350 km of pristine alpine skiing runs in the Engadin ski area, it comes as no surprise that St Moritz is a world-renowned premier last minute ski holiday destination.
The stunning resort of St Moritz along with Corviglia and Corvatsch are home to some of the most snow sure skiing in Europe. With high altitude runs, a glacier, and some very high-tech snow making equipment on lower slopes, skiing can be guaranteed even late into the Swiss ski holiday season. St Moritz has a large vertical of 1,533 metres and has a selection of 229 runs served by 55 ultra-modern lifts.

With 36 runs to choose from in the Engadin area and over 20% of the runs in St Moritz being graded as advanced, there is plenty to keep you entertained in this beautiful resort. There are also some great opportunities for off-piste skiing with some of the best powder in Europe. Take a guide and explore the surroundings. One of the real highlights is the Hahnensee black that runs down into St Moritz Bad.
It may come as a surprise to some that St Moritz is a top snowboarding destination, or that the first Snowboard World Championships in Europe for the sport took place here in the 'early days' of 1987. But, if you think about it, it must be important to the resort to excel in this winter sport as it does in all others, getting in there early with the first international competitions just as it did for skating, curling, skiing or bobsleigh.
Today there are several snow parks and a half pipe dotted around Engadin and an awful lot besides to entertain even the most hardened boarder.
There is a rich diversity in après ski options in St Moritz, catering for the wide variety in ages and wealth of the resort's visitors. An early evening stop for everyone regardless however is Hanselmann's, the century old purveyor of fabulous cakes and ice cream.
Normally St Moritz is lively well in to the small hours. The best known night spot is the Kings, but with a jacket and tie required to hear the orchestra through to 4am, this is not the kind of joint that appeals to the rebellious. They are more likely to head for Bobby's Bar, Stübli, Cascade Hemingway, Diamond or Vivai.
The alternatives to downhill sliding in St Moritz are unrivalled, covering the normal options to a higher standard than elsewhere and then offering some unusual choices that other don't. In this latter category you might consider a game of golf, or even cricket on the frozen lake, where horse riding, ski jöring (being towed behind a horse on your skis), show jumping and polo are also enjoyed to competition standard.
The Olympia bobsleigh run is open to all with a package including a run, a photo, a drink and a certificate whilst the world famous Cresta run is of course still going strong, a very British affair (although Swiss francs are now accepted for payment and, possibly as a last bastion of colonial style chauvinism, only men are allowed to partake, officially due to a medical decision in 1932 that women might damage their breasts).
Off the slopes there's a spa, cinema, museums, horse drawn sleigh rides, indoor tennis, squash and many more leisure opportunities. A new casino complex is nearing completion and in the meantime there is a casino next to the Kempinski Grand Hotel.
Another area in which St Moritz leads the Winter sports resort world is gourmet dining, which goes far beyond having the best restaurants and the best chefs. The resort's Gourmet Festival actually brings in the world's best chefs from establishments which in the recent past have included the Seoul Hilton and the Beverly Wilshire in Los Angeles both to prepare culinary wonders for guests and to inspire further the resort's own indigenous chefs.
Not that they do a bad job themselves, being ranked as "The best in the Alps" by international critics, more than 20 of the resorts restaurants are listed in the elite Gault Millau Guide For Gourmets. Of course the problem for the financially challenged is paying for it all, but set priced menus are available generally offering great value.
