Skiing

Corviglia
Early risers swear by the “White Carpet”, the first ride down the freshly groomed pistes: at sunrise you can be up on the Piz Nair (3,057m/10,030ft) facing spectacular views, 100km (62 miles) of runs of World-Cup quality, and the Corviglia Snow Park with its 30 obstacles – regarded as one of the finest in Europe. Those who prefer a rather gentler experience can opt for the 3km (2 mile) Paradiso piste designated for “ChilloutRiding”. It is the wide range of options on offer that mark out the Corviglia, and St. Moritz and Celerina’s local mountain is quite rightly one of the world’s most famous snow sports playgrounds – thanks, also, to its celebrated “champagne climate”.

Corvatsch
The big cable car is impressive in itself, gliding from Surlej up to the mid-mountain station in just seven minutes. More impressive still is the spectacular mountain panorama that greets you at the end of the next leg of the ride, when you step out of the cabin at the highest summit station in the Eastern Alps at an altitude of 3,303m (10,837ft). And it isn’t just the exertion that takes your breath away as you swoop down the demanding but exciting 9km (5.5 mile) descent from the Corvatsch via Hahnensee straight to St. Moritz, or tackle the longest illuminated night run in Switzerland. The Corvatsch is packed with thrills – until well into the springtime.

Diavolezza
Set among the mighty icy peaks of the Bernina Massif, this famous natural amphitheatre is a truly impressive departure point for your thrilling descent to the valley. Skiing here, where the icy peaks of the Bernina Massif tower up high above the glacier tongues, requires considerable concentration. For although you really came up here to ski, you cannot stop your eyes wandering over to the silvery hanging glaciers, the walls of ice and the snowy-white peaks that seem almost within your grasp.

Zuoz
The 4-person chairlift climbs from the edge of the village of Zuoz up to the heights, gliding silently past the Hotel Castell to the base of the second chairlift. This in turn heads for a higher goal, bringing passengers to the top of Zuoz’s local mountain, the Pizzet (2,465m/8,087ft). During the ride, as your altitude increases, so does your level of excitement: beneath you stretch wide pistes sparkling in the sunlight, and beyond, the whole valley – more impressive still from a bird’s-eye view.
