The St Moritz resort
Possibly the world's most famous ski resort, St. Moritz has hosted the Winter Olympics of 1928 and 1948 and is the site of the famous Cresta Run. Compared to many other ski resorts, the larger size of the village of St. Moritz helps provide versatility – although it is associated with exclusivity, it can still cater for those on a limited budget. St Moritz is far from a quaint alpine village, but its lakeside setting in the Engadin Valley makes it a really stunning resort and there’s terrific skiing for all abilities.
Après-ski in St Moritz
The après ski possibilities are broad and varied, something available to suit all ages and pockets! There are more than 30 bars and pubs – many offering live bands and music as well as others being quiet and laid back. The bars stay open as late or early (depending on your point of view) as 4am.
A great late-night spot is the Secondo Bar, but others that score high on our list are: Hemingway, Scala-Bar, Cava and Bobby's Pub. If you’re not completely knackered after a good day’s skiing, then there are five discos and clubs, or if you fancy a flutter, there are the casinos in the Kulm Hotel and Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains.
