It's hard to beat knocking back Martinis with the Euro 'in' crowd at the Kempinski after a long day on the slopes!

St. Moritz is the oldest winter sports resort in the world, and has been host to two Winter Olympics and three Alpine Ski World Championships. The resort enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Alps, situated on the Upper Engadine lakes. In winter, the frozen lakes play host to a diverse and eccentric range of activities, from polo and horse racing to ice cricket, but the highlight of the trip is taking on the famous Cresta Run.
