St Moritz Skiing & Snowboarding

St Moritz's three separate ski areas of Corviglia, Corvatsch and Diavolezza Lagalb offer completely different skiing experiences. Corviglia is the standout for the majority of skiers & snowboarders with its modern lifts, sunny open terrain and perfect grooming.

Corviglia is a piste skiers paradise directly above St Moritz. Accessed by four different points in the valley, its 155km of sunny south facing slopes are wonderful for combining fast turns & long lunches. The off piste is vast as well & includes everything from expert only chutes to wide open alpine bowls. Small areas of north facing terrain hold fresh lines for many days after the last snowfall.

Strangely, the worst place to access the ski area is from the centre of St Moritz via a two stage funicular. The villages of Celerina and St Moritz Bad (as in ‘spa’) on the fringes are better via gondola & cable car. Those starting early are rewarded at Corviglia as the piste trails will be deliciously perfect and totally deserted until after 1030ish when the glitterati finally get out.

Corviglia is St Moritz's best place for children and those wanting to learn to ski. Two base area (Celerina & Suvretta) & three higher elevation locations (Salastrains, Corviglia & Marguns) provide a great variety of learn to ski areas. Salastrains is usually accessed via a horse drawn sleigh ride for new skiers - what a beautiful way to start skiing!

There are plans to replace the Corviglia's Signal cable car (St Moritz Bad) with a gondola & also to lift link Corviglia to Corvatsch via a gondola from the Signal car park to above Corvatsch’s Hahnensee run. A tasty prospect indeed & one that will turn St Moritz Corviglia into truly one of the great ski resorts of the world.
