Welcome to St Moritz

Yet despite the string of big-name designer boutiques on Via Serlas and celebs bashing the pistes, this resort isn't all show. The real riches lie outdoors in the mountains, with superb carving on Corviglia, hairy black runs on Diavolezza and miles of hiking trails when the snow melts. St Moritz has hosted the Winter Olympics twice, and most are surprised to hear that the town first gained fame due to its mineral springs, which were discovered 3000 years ago and established the town as a summer spa resort.
