6500ft above sea level, St Moritz enjoys one of the most spectacular settings in the Alps, situated on the Upper Engadine lakes, nestled above Lake St Moritz. In winter, the frozen lakes play host to a diverse and eccentric range of activities, from snow polo and horse racing to ice cricket, but the highlight of the trip is taking on the famous Cresta Run; descending the ¾ mile long run at speeds in excess of 60 mph (the best riders approach 80 mph), your face just inches above the surface of the ice. It's the ultimate in adrenaline fixes.
Of course, the main alternative activity for the less daring visitor is skiing. St Moritz is well equipped with every slope you could wish for, from nursery slopes for children (and adult beginners, we won't tell!) to advanced pistes for the experienced skiers. If the Cresta Run isn't daredevil enough, we can arrange guides to take you to the hairiest of off piste skiing. Non skiers can enjoy a range of alternative winter activities on offer, including dog sledding, snow-shoeing, curling, or exploring the resorts upmarket boutiques and restaurants. The resort has great nightlife and a cosmopolitan ambience.
