St. Moritz Family Vacations

St. Moritz is one of the most famous Swiss Alpine Villages around the world. Did you know that in St.Moritz the sun shines around 300 days per year? In St. Moritz you can have amazing family holidays during summer and wintertime. Here some highlights of our last winter family holiday in St. Moritz region, Switzerland.

One and Only in St.Moritz

CRESTA RUN toboggan track
It is a natural ice run, built from scratch every year with snow which is then iced, as from the inception of the Run in the winter of 1884/85. It starts in St Moritz and winds its way down a narrow valley to what was the village of Cresta, but which now forms part of Celerina. It is approximately 3/4 mile (1,212m) in length with a drop of 514 feet (157m). The gradient varies from 1 in 2.8 to 1 in 8.7. The map of our Run gives you additional details.
Starting Points
There are two starting points, Top and Junction. Riders from Junction begin opposite the Clubhouse, about one-third down the Run from Top. Only experienced riders can qualify to ride from Top. The Run has 10 corners, all of which are named. The most infamous is Shuttlecock. If a rider is out of control, he risks going out at Shuttlecock, the most famous corner of the Run. Fallers at Shuttlecock automatically become members of the Shuttlecock Club and are entitled to wear a Shuttlecock tie. (www.cresta-run.com)

WHITE TURF
White Turf, a unique, exclusive, top-class event with exciting horse-racing, gourmet catering, lively music, and inspiring art exhibitions, all taking place in winter sunshine on the frozen lake among the stunningly beautiful, snow-capped mountains of St Moritz. (www.whiteturf.ch)
