St Moritz

St Moritz Ski Resort Switzerland

Whilst for years it has simply traded on its name, St Moritz is rightfully a world renown ski resort. Comprising 3 diverse ski areas, St Moritz, in the canton of Grisons (or Graubünden) Switzerland, has terrain and activities for all skier abilities and non-skier proclivities. 

Feted as a playground for the wealthy, St Moritz might be a little more expensive than some ski destinations in Switzerland, but it provides a superb ski experience for those with an open mind, willing to give it a go. The Powderhounds loved it.
