Snowboarding and Skiing Breaks in St Moritz, Switzerland

Drive time : 227 miles or 4hrs drive time from Salzburg

Skiing breaks in St Moritz are the equivalent of a weekend trip to Monte Carlo for skiers and snowboarders. The fashionable resort in the Engadine Valley attracts a who’s who clientele whilst offering some excellent skiing conditions.

The resort gets its exclusivity from its remoteness and grand landscape but it is accessible with cheap flights to Salzburg. Whilst it might take roughly 4 hours to get to St Moritz from Salzburg, this does give you plenty of time to enjoy the scenery on the drive in.

When you arrive for your skiing break you will find a picturesque landscape with an abundance of obvious skiing opportunities.

Excellent Skiing Opportunities

Piste MapThere is over 350km of pistes to tackle whilst on a snowboarding and skiing break in St Moritz, plenty of it more than 2500 metres high. This should give you an indication of the quality of skiing and snowboarding available.

The high altitude can almost guarantee snow but this is complemented by snowmaking facilities that ensure you are never short of options when it comes to taking out the skis.

As St Moritz is split into St Moritz Dorf and St Moritz Bad you are likely to find two different kinds of skiing breaks depending on where you go. Dorf, which has the Corviglia area, is more convenient to reach, namely by the funicular, whereas Bad, which doesn’t live up to its name, is more remote. The likelihood is you will find more of the who’s who around Dorf as this is deemed the more fashionable area.

Regardless of which area you frequent, you will find some excellent scenery to marvel at whilst you prepare to navigate down one of the slopes. The level of skiing is varied with an ample offering of runs for beginners, whilst advanced skiers will enjoy the off-piste opportunities at Piz Nair. A free bus service takes you to some of the more remote pistes.

Okay elite might be a stretch but the bar and restaurant culture is very enjoyable on a ski break in St Moritz. Many of the restaurants offer views as good as the cuisine whilst it is possible to relax and unwind in some of the bars that light up this fashionable valley resort.
