St. Moritz is a luxury alpine resort town in Switzerland’s Engadin valley. It has hosted the Winter Olympics twice, has the Cresta Run, a world-championship bobsled run made of natural ice, and an outdoor Olympic ice rink. Its frozen lake hosts polo, cricket, and even horse racing on ice. Ski and snowboard areas include Corviglia, Diavolezza, and Corvatsch, and there are well-groomed cross-country ski trails.
A cable car runs up to the 3,303-metre high Piz Corvatsch with an ice cave and a 9-km ski run down to St. Moritz-Bad. Luxury hotels are concentrated in St. Moritz Dorf, known as "the village." The main street, Via Serlas, is lined with high-end fashion and jewelry boutiques, upmarket restaurants, and après-ski clubs. In winter, wooden slope-side chalets serve specialties such as fondue and nusstorte, a traditional local nut cake. Summer activities include hiking and mountain biking, as well as sailing and windsurfing on Lake St. Moritz. Panoramic trains include the Glacier Express running to or from Zermatt, and the Bernina Express.
