St Moritz, Skiing & Snowb...

The extensive ski and snowboard area of the Upper Engadine is spread over several separate sectors – six to be precise. The two main areas lie on either side of the valley with St Moritz situated in between. The local ski pass covers all areas providing access to more than 350 kilometers of marked piste most suited to intermediate and advanced riders. The other villages that offer access to the smaller ski areas can themselves be accessed by bus and/or train.

St Moritz is one of the resorts responsible for putting the glitz and glamour into skiing and now of course, snowboarding. It has long been a destination frequented by the well healed and well to do, being a resort of impeccable standards both on and off the slopes.

Beginner

ski rating

Beginners will find a nursery area located on the slopes of Corviglia close to the hamlet of Bad. Although there are some longer blue runs further up the mountain for those looking to build confidence the options soon run out unless you’re ready to move up a gear or head for one of the other areas. The easy terrain is there in abundance it’s just spread between the different locales. This may not be ideal for first timers who may find it a faff having to change location just to experience a bit of variety.

Intermediate

ski rating

St Moritz and the Upper Engadine provide plenty of terrain suitable for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. This terrain is most abundant on the Corvatsch and Corviglia sectors located on either side of the resort. The smaller areas of Diavolezza and Lagalb are also worth a visit with their long top to bottom red runs. A run of note is the long red all the way from Piz Nair to Celerina.

Advanced

ski rating

Advanced riders are pretty spoiled here with the majority of marked runs being graded difficult. Additionally, the area offers some challenging back country that is easily accessed by lift. Beware of glaciated terrain and seek the advice of a guide if unsure or simply don’t start. St Moritz is also well known as a heli-skiing destination. As with most resorts there is more to be found out-with the boundary than within. If that doesn’t suit your green credentials then there are always biodegradable skins or snow shoes.

Freestyle, Skier and BoarderCross

ski rating

Freestylers can head on up to the park or the pipe while the real deal head for the back country for some serious air. Others call it free fall.
