Sports in St. Moritz

St. Moritz was famously the birthplace of winter Alpine tourism and winter sports in the 19th century, as well as the venue for two Winter Olympic Games (1928 and 1948) and numerous ski and bobsleigh world championships. During the winter months, the glamorous atmosphere in St. Moritz and the thrilling mountain on its doorstep, the Corviglia, make for a ski experience of a very special kind.
The St. Moritz bob run, the only natural ice track in the world that still hosts World Cup races, is a legend in itself – and anyone who rockets down it on a “bob guest ride” will understand vividly just why. Alongside it runs the famous Cresta Run, the birthplace of the sport of skeleton racing. With a length of 1,200 m and 10 corners, it offers riders average speeds of about 90 kph (55 mph) – travelling head-first, chin a mere 10 cm (4 in) above the ice.
