The world/?/s original ski resort is also its most famous. Established as a winter resort in the 1860s after originally being a summer spa destination, St Moritz rapidly grew in popularity attracting the world?s royalty, then early Hollywood stars and everyone who is anyone since. But, beneath the glitz, at its heart is a classic Alpine village, in a stunning location, surrounded by a huge and exciting ski region. St Moritz is a large resort with 24 lifts (7 chair lifts, 13 surface lifts) that offers skiers an incredible 1169 metres of vertical descent. St Moritz has 190 acres of terrain over 88 pistes with a total length of 80 kilometers. St Moritz is best suited to intermediate skiers and snowboarders but there is some terrain for beginners and advanced skiers. There are 150 kilometers of cross country ski trails at St Moritz. For snowboarders, there is a terrain park and a half pipe. A small proportion of the pistes at St Moritz are covered by snowmaking.

These two local ski areas are among the biggest of no less than eleven that make up the giant Engadin ski region, providing a choice of four large and seven small snow sport areas, with a total of 350 km (217 miles) of piste all on one lift ticket. As well as being a big area, the slopes are also higher than in most traditional ski regions, with the villages at around 1800m at the bottom of the slopes that head up 1500 vertical metres above them. It is just as affordable as any top resort in the Alps, the lift ticket for the huge Engadin ski area that surrounds it is actually less expensive than the price for most ski areas of a similar scale. Spreading around its famous frozen lake where the ice is thick enough in mid winter to withstand the weight of polo matches and horse races, along with thousands of watching fans The world?s original ski resort is also its most famous.
