Come the winter months, many of us will be jetting off in search of colder climates as we embark on our 2014 ski vacation. If you still haven’t decided where to go, read on to find out more about the fabulous resort of St Moritz in Switzerland.
As the playground of the rich and famous, chances are that you have already heard of St Moritz. Over the years, the resort has gained a reputation as an all-round winter sports hotspot, attracting visitors from across the globe.
Split into four main sectors, Corviglia, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb and Zuoz, the region’s ski area features a huge 350km of piste and has slopes to suit a variety of skiers. Intermediates will delight in the long runs offered in Corviglia and Corvatsch, while experts can challenge themselves with the black runs of Lagalb. The smaller resort of Zuoz, on the other hand, caters to families and beginners.
As the glamorous nature of the resort suggests, St Moritz is home to some of the world’s most spectacular chalets. With properties that feature private gyms, saunas, Jacuzzis and home cinemas, visitors have come to expect luxury as standard in this vibrant resort.
SkiBoutique has an extensive collection of luxury ski chalets in the resort. To add an extra touch of indulgence to this already exuberant location, the company assign you your very own PA to ensure your trip is stress- and hassle-free.
Compared to livelier Swiss resorts, St Moritz can been seen as somewhat tame to seasoned partiers. However, this isn’t to say the resort becomes something of a ghost town after 5pm: rather, it offers a distinctly more sophisticated affair.
Foodies will not be disappointed by the range of restaurants the resort offers. You’ll find everything from quaint eateries offering wholesome home-cooked food to swanky restaurants like La Marmite, which serves up truffles and caviar to its exclusive patrons.
In terms of nightlife, there are numerous options available for those looking to party. The elegant King’s Club often plays host to world-renowned DJs. Forget dancing on tables though: with the club’s A-list guest list and jaw-dropping interior, the club attracts a more elegant crowd.
On- or off-piste, St Moritz offers an unparalleled vibrancy that attracts visitors year after year to this popular Switzerland destination. Will you be one of them in 2014?
