Skiing in Sankt Moritz

Sankt Moritz is a well known ski resort in the Upper Engadine (Oberengadin) region, in the canton Graubünden. It lies at the 1856 m altitude and has a reputation of being the birthplace of Alpine winter tourism. One of the first ski lifts in Switzeland began running in there in 1935. The town has hosted the Winter Olympics twice: in 1928 and 1948. In February it had also hosted the 2017 FIS Ski World Championship. As such, it was a clear choice for this year’s annual ski trip with my father, brother and husband.

Zermatt – Winter Paradise revisited

Of course, we did.
