Corvatsch: Skiing IN ENGADIN ST. MORITZ
The big cable car is impressive in itself, gliding from Surlej up to the mid-mountain station in just seven minutes. More impressive still is the spectacular mountain panorama that greets you at the end of the next leg of the ride, when you step out of the cabin at the highest summit station in the Eastern Alps at an altitude of 3,303m (10,837ft). And it isn’t just the exertion that takes your breath away as you swoop down the demanding but exciting 9km (5.5 mile) descent from the Corvatsch via Hahnensee straight to St. Moritz, or tackle the longest illuminated night run in Switzerland. The Corvatsch is packed with thrills – until well into the springtime.
