Winter Sports, St. Moritz

See the St. Moritz Guide ›
St. Moritz , Switzerland
Concierge.com's insider take:

Skiing doesn't appeal? Alternative winter activities in St. Moritz include dog-sledding, snowshoeing, and the ever-popular curling. The Cresta Run entails tobogganing headfirst down an icy tunnel for three-quarters of a mile. It's organized by the St. Moritz Tobogganing Club and although private, it's easy for an outsider to arrange an introductory ride—provided they're male. After instruction you ride the serpentine ribbon of ice down to Celerina, your face only inches from the ice, at a speed of around 60mph. It's extremely skilled and dangerous—accidents are commonplace (www.cresta-run.com). Other spectator sports include bobsledding (41-81-830-02-00; www.olympia-bobrun.ch) and ski jumping, while the frozen lake hosts an unusual array of equestrian sports not usually played on water, including February horse racing (www.whiteturf.ch), mid-January show-jumping (www.stmoritz-concours.ch), and late January snow polo (www.polostmoritz.com). There's even the occasional cricket match, evidence of a long affinity the British have had for this alpine resort.
