St Moritz – Corviglia ski area
The Corviglia ski area in the winter sports mecca of St Moritz in Switzerland impresses with a diverse range of slopes: from relaxed gliding on the Paradiso slope to fast-paced challenges on the World Cup and Olympic slopes, there is something for everyone. The picturesque mountains of the Engadine are ideal for long hikes and other activities next to the slopes.
Where to stay in St Moritz
1) General information about the Corviglia ski area

Access to the ski area is available in St Moritz and St Moritz Bad as well as in the neighboring towns of Suvretta, Celerina and Samedan. 22 lifts and 155 kilometers of varied slopes leave nothing to be desired: Newbies can choose between 42 km of blue slopes, including the wonderfully relaxed Paradiso slope with relaxation areas.
Experienced skiers look forward to 79 km of red and 34 km of black slopes. The biggest highlights are undoubtedly the World Cup and Olympic slopes, such as the 2 km long Olympic downhill run and FIS slope no. 5: On the “Audi Ski Run”, amateurs can also compete against each other and measure their own personal bests.

The Corviglia ski area is between 1,720 m in the valley and 3,057 m on the summit of Piz Nair.

3) skiing in the Corviglia ski area
The winter sports resort of St Moritz is a legend among skiers. St. Moritz’s local mountain Corviglia has already served as the venue for the Alpine World Ski Championships five times, most recently in 2017. In addition, the Alpine Winter Olympics competitions were held twice in the Corviglia ski area (1928 and 1948). A corresponding number of challenges await experienced skiers here.
The “Logines Speed Check” on slope no. 15 enables speed freaks to go all out at over 70 kilometers per hour. The most difficult descent is the “Selin” (descent 24), which has a height difference of 477 m over a length of 1.7 km. The “Audi Ski Run” promises excitement: on the FIS giant slalom course, the driving times are measured to the hundredth of a second, just like the pros – ideal for small competitions among friends.
The descent from Fuorcla Grischa into the valley to Celerina is the longest descent at 6 km and a crowning glory for every day of skiing.
Winter sports enthusiasts should plan a whole day for the snow safari: this route, for which a separate day ticket is available, begins in Sils and first leads to the Corvatsch mountain station: this is where the famous 9 km long Hahnensee piste begins, which leads down to St Moritz. From here it goes up again to Piz Nair and the Trais Fluors, where the final descent to Celerina awaits.
The relaxed Paradiso slope (slope 1), which begins at the 2,659 m high Munt da San Murezzan and on which several quiet zones have been set up, is particularly beginner-friendly. The “Yoga on Snow” offer is unique: several times a week, yoga courses are offered in the quiet zones to make skiing a more conscious experience.
Everywhere in the Corviglia ski area there are special children’s areas waiting for families and their children, for example the “Snowli Kids Village” in Salastrains with a magic carpet and special children’s lifts and the Kids Village at the valley station in Celerina. There is even a restaurant here that is completely geared towards children, with colorful, child-friendly furniture.
Another extraordinary offer is being prepared for early risers: when the gondolas and chairlifts start moving from 7.45 am, the first winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy the unforgettable “White Carpet” experience with 100 km of freshly groomed snow. Away from the slopes, the deep snow is particularly attractive in the upper areas of the ski area, for example on the steep slopes below the Piz Nair summit.
Snowboarders and freestylers have fun in the Snow Park “Crowland” at the Corviglia mountain station with over 30 obstacles. Beginners can practice in peace in the 4,400 m long “Easy Park” and there is a separate fun slope for children.
Cross-country skiers can choose from 220 km of well-groomed trails around St. Moritz, because it is no coincidence that famous cross-country events such as “La Diagonela” and the Engadine Ski Marathon are held here.
4) Expert evaluation
Experts love the Corviglia ski area. Among other things, the snow security, the range of lifts and cable cars, as well as the diverse offers for experts and cross-country skiers are emphasised. Gastronomy also received a top rating
5) Off-piste activities
The gastronomic offer in the Corviglia ski area leaves nothing to be desired. During the day, winter sports enthusiasts can choose to dine in cozy mountain huts such as the “Chamanna” mountain restaurant and the Glünetta hut or at “Mathis Food Affairs”: here at the Corviglia mountain station, six restaurants are united under one roof – from the family-friendly “Brasserie” to the gourmet restaurant “La Marmite ”.
Lunch with a fantastic view is possible in the panorama restaurant on the summit of Piz Nair at an altitude of 3,057 m. In the evening hours the restaurants of St Moritz open their doors to hungry winter sports enthusiasts. It is a little cheaper in the neighboring towns.
From the early afternoon, the umbrella bars invite you to a well-groomed après-ski. In the Sternbar at the Marguns mountain station (2,278 meters in altitude), cocktails or champagne are served. The party continues later in the center of St. Moritz.
As it should be in a posh location, great importance is attached to a neat ambience. The most famous locations include the “King’s Club” in Badrutt’s Place, the “Sunny Bar” and the “Devil’s Place” bar with over 2,500 sorts of whiskey. The rather dignified après-ski scene is rewarded with four stars.
6) Places in the ski area
The famous spa and winter sports resort of St Moritz is located in the centre of the ski area. It is famous for its magnificent hotel palaces from the turn of the century, its first-class gastronomy and its diverse shopping opportunities. In the place of the holy Mauritius there is enough to do even on ski-free days.
The still existing leaning tower of the (broken) Mauritius Church is the landmark of the city today. The “Engiadinais” museum provides information about traditional life in the Engadine and the “Forum Paracelsus” about the resort’s spa culture. The Mauritius spring supplies the OVAVERVA indoor pool & spa with its soothing hot water today. The perfect recovery for stressed muscles.
As early as the middle of the 19th century, St Moritz made a name for itself as the birthplace of winter sports tourism and subsequently hosted the Winter Olympics twice (1928 and 1948). Since then, world-class events have taken place regularly in the glamorous ski stronghold.
Ski and bobsleigh championships as well as horse racing, cricket, polo and golf tournaments.
For the fifth time in 2017, St Moritz was chosen to host the Alpine World Ski Championships. In addition, innovative events such as the city race in winter or the alpine biathlon in summer are held. In the City Race, the participants race through the streets of the cosmopolitan town on skis, while in the Alpinathlon they alternately climb the surrounding mountains by bike and on foot.
The “Alpin” museum in nearby Pontresina is also worth seeing . The place itself inspires with its charming Engadine houses, which are decorated with sgraffito paintings. No less beautiful is the romantic Zuoz with its well-preserved historic village center.
