St. Moritz in wintertime
In wintertime, St. Moritz is the symbol of holidays on the snow. Indeed, winter tourism was invented here, when in 1864 the hotelier Johannes Badrutt bet with his English summer guests on temperate weather in winter. The hotel manager won his wager (in St. Moritz, the average of good weather is 322 days per year) and the town suddenly became one of the most famous winter resorts of the World. Today, in St. Moritz 350 km of ski slopes are available for every kind of skier: from the easiest slopes for children and families to the most difficult ones, like in Corviglia with a steep gradient of 100% on Piz Nair Wall Station. In fact, the 150 km snowshoeing paths, bobsleigh and sleigh descents, the 200 km downhill slopes, the fun park for children, the snowpark for freestyle enthusiasts, the several Spa and wellness centres among the most wonderful in the Alps, the boutiques and shops for shopping, and everything you may ask for a memorable holiday, contribute to make St. Moritz one of the favorite winter holiday destinations for Swiss as for International guests, more often Italians.
