The Engadine Valley, located in the canton of Grisons, is one of the most beautiful areas where to go skiing in Switzerland. Here you can enjoy a few days of sport, relaxation and entertainment.
The Valley is divided into two very different areas: the upper Engadine with its four lakes, dense forests and glaciers, including places like St. Moritz and Celerina as well as the lower Engadine with steeper slopes ending in Austria.
The most famous ski resorts
The first place amongst the most renowned ski resorts is of course St. Moritz. This exclusive place has hosted the Olympic games twice and in 2017, it will host the Alpine Ski World Cup. This is possible due to the three districts that make up the area: Corviglia, Corvatsch and Diavolezza. In addition, St. Moritz is famous for its Skeleton and little sledge slopes, for the bobsled slope made with natural ice and for cross country skiing trails.
Pontresina is another Engadine location considered as one of the most beautiful by ski lovers. The Roseg Valley opens up from here into an area closed to traffic and dedicated to cross country skiing boasting breathtaking views. The Bernina Train also stops here. During summer and winter, it runs everyday giving tourists the opportunity of discovering the beauties of the place.
Scuol is located in the most northern part of the area. It is a busy tourist destination that however preserves its nearly intact rusticity and natural heritage. It is particularly renowned for its 14 mean level lifts, for its thermal bath and Switzerland's top Turkish bath.
Last but not least there is also the Zuoz resort. It is located at 1750 metres, is not far from St. Moritz and offers 30 kilometres of trails that run along an overall altitude of 700 metres.
