120 kilometres of groomers wind through the picturesque winter wonderland surrounding Piz Corvatsch. Advanced skiers and snowboarders are particularly well catered for here with a wide range of exhilarating runs and 89 kilometres of red-rated trails. If you are not quite ready for intermediate runs, there are also 13 kilometres of easy slopes to explore here. Experts can also look forward to 18 kilometres of challenging black-rated runs. 14 lifts carry skiers up into this varied ski area, with entry points scattered from Sils to Silvaplana and all the way over to St. Moritz. The highest point in the ski area, at a respectable 3,303 meters, provides an incredible panorama that has to be seen to be believed.

The ski area is also home to Switzerland’s longest floodlit run (4.2 kilometres), where skiers and snowboarders can take to the mountain every Friday after the sun sets. Speed demons head for the FIS race course on the Grialetsch slope and the speed check by the Ustaria Rabgiusa.

The Kinderpark offers an ideal environment for youngsters to try their hand at winter sports for the first time. This lovingly designed area also includes a specially conceived children’s lift. Beginners of all ages are supported by instructors from the local ski schools and a range of courses are on offer.

And whether you’re a greenhorn or a pro – the ski area caters for all levels of freestyle ability. The Corvatsch terrain park at the Murtèl middle station offers up a varied selection of jumps and rails as well as a quarter-pipe for some serious freestyle fun. The park is conveniently divided into zones, including a mini park, fun zone, world cup line, halfpipe, bag jump and chill out area. Freeride fans and powder hounds will find plenty of untouched off-piste routes between the 120 kilometres of groomers.

Corvatsch is part of the Engadin St. Moritz winter sports region. Visitors can explore an incredible 350 kilometres of immaculate trails in four large (Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb, Zuoz) and five smaller ski areas. A snow safari through the Engadin even offers a route for discovering all the individual ski areas in just one day.

On Mountain Dining

Real culinary highlights are to be found at the Panorama Restaurant 3303. This is the  highest restaurant in Graubünden. Hardly anywhere else can you dine so close to heaven! The restaurant at the summit of Corvatsch is as impressive for its excellent regional dishes as it is for its superb views of glaciers and lakes. The chefs use only fresh ingredients that are locally sourced where possible.

La Chüdera, the mountain-top restaurant on Furtschellas, is an insiders' tip for gourmets. Its à-la-carte restaurant, sunshine terrace and coffee bar make it an inviting place to spend some time. In winter, the Murtèl middle station and the big self-service restaurant are the hub and focal point of the skiing area. A highlight in winter is the Kuhstall restaurant. By day, the host serves up delicious, simple dishes. In the evening, there are sophisticated gourmet menus (13 Gault Millau points) and party sounds.

The Ustaria Rabgiusa, the idyllically located ski hut between Furtschellas and Corvatsch, tempts its visitors with Italian specialities like flatbread and polenta dishes. The Hossa Bar, a popular après-ski venue, serves cool cocktails, hosts a great party every Friday and fires up the barbecue regularly for burgers, chicken wings and genuine hotdogs.

Must-Ski Runs

The difficult black run leading from the Giand'Alva to Hahnensee and further on to St. Moritz Bad is one of the Engadin's dream slopes. The Hahnensee slope has wide-open, steep slopes at the beginning and a snowy fairytale forest at the end. A dream for true snow sports enthusiasts! The 9-kilometre long descent is the final highlight after an exciting day on the Corvatsch - and also very popular because of the view over the Engadin lakes.

The Giand’ Alva chairlift is already swinging into action at 9.00am. As a result, the Hahnensee piste can be negotiated several times a day. And then the Hahnensee Express is there waiting at the bottom. The shuttle bus is free for skiing visitors and operates every 30 minutes between St. Moritz–Signal and Surlej-Corvatsch. The Hahnensee Express (Line 3) connects perfectly with the Engadin Bus services.



Ski down Switzerland’s longest floodlit slope and party with your friends until late – a great way to spend Friday nights! Every Friday, the spotlight is on Corvatsch, when the longest floodlit piste in Switzerland opens from 7.00pm until well after midnight.

The 4.2km-long piste is freshly groomed and smoother than ever. The Murtèl restaurant at the middle station is a great place to take a breather and fortify yourself between exhilarating descents. And pizzas from the wood-fired oven taste even better at night.

After a night of swinging down the ski slopes, the party continues with dancing at the legendary Hossa Bar. DJs ensure a lively ambience and food & drinks are served until closing time. Useful tip: a night bus operates once an hour. And those who have taken part in Snow Night four times get in for free the 5th time.

If you want to get away from it all and enjoy the silence of the backcountry, pull on your snowshoes – there are two specially signposted paths to choose from on Furtschellas. In addition, there are plenty of immaculately prepared cross-country routes through the wintery Engadin landscape.


Après-Ski and Nightlife

The Sonnenstübli in St. Moritz Bad at the bottom of the Hahnenseeabfahrt is the best place to grab a snack and a refreshing drink, catch some rays and soak up the après-ski atmosphere. The Hossa Bar is also always a good bet for cool drinks and hot beats in the evening. Located next to the valley station of the Alp Surlej chairlift, this is a great place to round out a day on the slopes. Every Friday night is Snow Night, with unforgettable parties at the middle station of the lift.
