Overview

LAY OF THE LAND

St. Moritz is divided into two distinct villages, Bad and Dorf, situated two miles apart. Dorf is situated on the northern shore of Lake St. Moritz, and is considered the main village, with easy access to chic shops, hotels, restaurants, and nightlife. West of the lake, Bad village, dominated by the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains, is much more sedate. Four miles to the northeast, the town of Celerina sits at the bottom of the Cresta Run and is known as "Piccolo Milano" because of its popularity with Italians. A mile farther along the valley is Samedan, which has it own beginner lift, while hamlets such as La Punt provide additional accommodations.

WHEN TO GO


The ski season runs December to April; the summer season is from mid-June to mid-October. During gaps in spring and fall, the town virtually shuts down—it is utter folly to visit at these times because most hotels and restaurants are closed, turning St. Moritz into the Alps' ritziest ghost town.

HOW TO GET THERE


AIRPORT

The nearest airport is Zurich, 125 miles from St. Moritz (www.zurich-airport.com). Incredible vistas of soaring bridges, extraordinary gorges, and mighty glaciers will keep you occupied on the four-hour train ride from Zurich. Visit www.rail.ch for train information.
