Ski & Snowboard

The Chantarella funicular and the Marguns gondola run daily from 07:45 up St. Moritz’s local mountain, the Corviglia. Early birds can enjoy the unspoilt, freshly prepared slopes in the morning. Beyond the blue, red and black slopes, the western side of the Piz Nair offers adventure for all freeriders.

St. Moritz is the birthplace of winter tourism and Alpine sport, which came about over 150 years ago as the result of a bet. With a total of 87 World Cup standard slopes and pistes, St. Moritz is amongst the largest and most varied winter sports regions in the Alps.

Beginners, families with children, and seasoned skiers and snowboarders are all at home here. With the four large ski areas of Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch/Furtschellas, Diavolezza and Lagalb, and the five smaller ski areas, the Upper Engadine offers unlimited skiing pleasure.

Children’s Paradise and Lifts for Beginners

First experiences on the snow are a delight in the perfect conditions at the Engadine. Youngsters can carve their first turns on the beginners’ slopes in a selection of ski areas:

  • In the Corviglia ski area, beginners make their first attempts on the Salastrains piste.
  • The small Languard family ski area in the centre of Pontresina impresses with its varied and child-friendly infrastructure. Children up to 15 years of age ski here free of charge.
  • Head up the slope of Provulér, Celerina aboard one of the first child-safe 4-seat chairlifts. Once at the top, ski novices are greeted by a nursery area offering a wide variety of facilities.
  • Skiing or snowboarding can be learned right next to the bottom station of the Corvatsch lift at the Cristins ski lift.
  • The Survih nursery lift and the magic carpet at the edge of the village of Samedan are ideal for first-time skiers.
  • The ski area with a button lift and two short slopes in Müsella, La Punt Chamues-ch promises a pleasant, free-of-charge experience.
  • The Bügls ski slope in S-chanf is for youngsters who are confident enough to ski down the slope for the first time. The pony lift then tows them back up, ready for the fun to start all over again.
  • Little ones learn skiing and snowboarding with ease at the Aela ski area in Maloja.
