St Moritz fully earns its reputation as the most fashionable and exclusive Swiss ski resort. Positioned high in the magnificent Engadine Valley, the resort boasts breathtaking panoramic scenery. The main focal point is the frozen lake which plays host to many of the resort's winter events. The wonderfully long and well-groomed runs make ski holidays in St Moritz ideal for intermediates and there are a number of excellent mountain restaurants.
The resort itself is split into two areas on opposite sides of the lake. St Moritz Dorf is the main upmarket hub whilst on the other side, St Moritz Bad is a smaller relaxed spa resort.
