The original Swiss ski resort, St. Moritz has welcomed winter tourists for over 150 years. Its success stems from the champagne climate of the Upper Engadine – dry and sunny, with a high degree of snow certainty. The ski region of St. Moritz also contains the Corvatsch, at a vertiginous 3,303m one of the Alps' highest summit stations, which offers a long night ski run on the Corvatsch. As a destination, St. Moritz does well with its activity programme off the slopes: visitors can try skating and curling on the resort’s many ice rinks, give themselves a fright on a toboggan run or try snow-shoeing and cross country skiing. There’s a packed programme of events that lasts all winter long – in particular, the White Turf horse races, Snow Polo World Cup and the World Cup Bob and Skeleton attract the crowds here.
