Visiting Sankt Moritz is like a therapy in the best SPA resort. The sun shines here 322 days in a year and wholesome power of local water was known 3000 years ago. As the Swiss say here you can heal your heart, soul and body. Luxurious hotels like Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, Carlton Hotel St. Moritz, Kempinski Grand Hotel des Basins or Badrutt’s Palace are a visiting card of the area. The hotels send rolls-royce cars with a chauffeur to pick up their guests.
Among all Swiss winter resorts Sankt Moritz is number 1. There are three skiing centers and 350 km of perfectly compacted ski runs. A six day ski pass costs 300 euro but if you book 6 nights in a hotel you will get from October 20th 2012 to May 30th 2013 even 50% discount. The biggest station is Corviglia with its highest peak Piz Nair (3057 m above sea level). There are 30 ski runs which lead down the mountain. For those who like smooth a special Paradiso trail was prepared. Every hungry skier should stop at La Marmite – where Reto Mathisa restaurant is located at 2486 m above sea level. The restaurant declared war on fast food on slopes and you can be served such delicacies as: buckwheat pancakes with caviar or carpaccio with black truffles from their own cultivation and salmon. Slopes of neighboring Diavolezza are not so attractive but we the views are truly fabulous – majestic peaks stretch to horizon. When you reach 2978 m above sea level by a cableway you can feed or enjoy relaxation in an outdoor Jacuzzi. Then you can only ski 10 km down the hill using off-piste run on Morteratsch (the longest iceberg slope in Switzerland). According to a legend Divolezza was a very pretty she-devil, anybody who fell in love with her must have died. During a stay in Sankt Moritz you should try a night skiing under a star-filled sky and lightened up slope in Corvatsch resort. There are bars with music every few meters.
