AN UNRIVALLED CHOICE OF TOP-CL ASS WINTER SPORTS. Freeride on the Corvatsch with view of the frozen Engadin lakes
WELCOME TO A PAR ADISE FOR SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING
Corvatsch ski area with view of the Bernina massif
The first winter sports region in GraubĂźnden to open: Diavolezza starts operation on 20 October 2018.
Snow-covered slopes sparkling in the sunshine frame a wide, high valley of bewitching beauty. The Engadin has repeatedly won the coveted ADAC ski guide award for the Alpine ski region with the greatest variety, alongside other honours including the prestigious British Travel Award. At the four large ski areas of Corviglia, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb and Zuoz, as well as at five smaller but charming areas, skiers and snowboarders find a total of 88 superb pistes waiting to be explored. Beginners, intermediates and experts alike discover slopes perfectly suited to their ability. Thanks to the high altitude and the modern snowmaking facilities, the whole region is famously snowsure, while the dry climate guarantees superb powder. Throughout the area, 74 mountain and excursion restaurants promise mouth-watering gastronomic variety. Another special attraction of the region is the early start to the season: up on the Diavolezza, snow sports enthusiasts can indulge their passion as early as 20 October 2018.
Ski and snowboard activities with a difference The mountain railways and cableways of the Engadin offer a wide range of activities on the pistes. For example, Cor vatsch Snow Night on Friday evenings promises a party atmosphere and the chance to tackle the longest floodlit slope in Switzerland – great fun for skiers and snowboarders alike. You can even ski or snowboard all day long without repeating a single run: the Snow Safari offers a panoramic tour of several different ski areas. “Glüna Plaina”, which means “full moon” in Romansh, is a thrilling evening event that starts with a delicious meal at the summit restaurant on the Diavolezza and ends with you gliding down deserted slopes to the valley in the silvery moonlight. White Carpet Corviglia At 7.45am, the cableways swing into action, and as the sun peeps above the snow-capped ridge, you are already gliding up to the heights. Soon after eight, you are standing at the top of freshly prepared pistes, with barely a soul in sight – and all the space in the world to carve the very first tracks down to the valley floor.
As of 1 September a new pricing structure will apply to purchases of ski passes. Instead of the same price being charged ever y day over the entire season, the price for daily and multi-day tickets will var y according to demand on each particular date of validit y. And you can now also inf luence these prices depending on the time you make the booking. Early bookers who purchase their tickets up to 15 days before redemption will now receive discounts of up to 30 percent on their ski passes. The prices will be dynamically determined from CHF 45.– per day. www.snow-deal.ch

Snowshoeing on Muottas Muragl
Winter walking A map showing all the winter walking trails is available from local tourist information offices or online : www.engadin.stmoritz.ch / winter-hiking-map
Experience the fairy-tale charm of our delightful winter walking trails. The Engadin St. Moritz region has 150 km (93 miles) of winter walking paths and trails waiting to be explored. Cosy cafes and restaurants along the way offer the chance to stop for a welcome rest. On a stroll across the frozen Engadin lakes, you appreciate the vast expanse of the high valley and, especially at sunset, the magical quality of light in the Engadin. The flat winter walking paths from Maloja to Silvaplana and on to St. Moritz are perfect for families â€“ depending on snow conditions, with pushchairs, too. For a particularly picturesque winter walk, follow the path from Sils into the romantic Val Fex, or from Maloja through the snow-blanketed forest to the frozen Lake Cavloccio. Those setting their sights higher can follow the Philosophersâ€™ Trail up on Muottas Muragl. Along this scenic winter walking trail, seats furnished with woollen blankets invite walkers to reflect on the breathtaking beauty of the landscape all around.
Snowshoe treks With snowshoes on your feet, you are free to explore the pristine forests and snow-blanketed plateaus at your own pace â€“ a magical adventure for anyone seeking tranquillity and adventure off the beaten track. In recent years, Maloja has made a name for itself among enthusiasts as a paradise for snowshoeing, while Madulain offers an idyllic evening snowshoe trek followed by a fondue dinner in a cosy alpine hut.
Snowkiting Snowkiting is like kitesurfing, only on skis or a snowboard. A favourite venue is the frozen Lake Silvaplana, where you glide over the snow pulled by a kite powered by the Maloja wind. Another option is the frozen Lago Bianco up at the Bernina Pass.
Ice climbing The ice climbing gorge in Pontresina and the various frozen waterfalls attract experts and novices to the Engadin from far and wide. The Pontresina Mountaineering School offers a range of courses at all levels.
Ice sports Every village in the Engadin has an ice rink, where locals and visitors can skate, play ice hockey or hold a curling match. Some are also floodlit and open in the evening. Enthusiasts will particularly enjoy two special experiences: skating on the natural ice of frozen Lake St. Moritz and visiting the â€œGlatschinâ€? adventure ice rink by Plazza Rosatsch in St. Moritz Bad.
Curling on the Roseg ice rink in Pontresina
Madulain Ice Path Ice skating enthusiasts will love this beautiful open-air trail through the meadows along the left bank of the Inn. The light effects on the frozen river, views of the historic village heart and the sense of peace in the valley f loor are enchanting. The path is 1,000 metres (1,100 yards) long and begins at the Madulain works yard, where parking is available. Further details: www.engadin.stmoritz.ch / ice-path-madulain

Three connecting elements – glaciers, energy and time – are the focus of a range of attractions and exciting adventures in nature. Further information: www.engadin.moritz.ch/bernina-glaciers-en
Glacier Express Treat yourself to one of the most spectacular of all journeys through the Swiss Alps, from St. Moritz to Zermatt. Along the way, enjoy a freshly prepared lunch served at your seat as you watch the breathtaking mountain scenery glide past the panoramic windows. Alp Grüm full-moon trip The evening begins with a ride in a panoramic carriage of a special train from St. Moritz to Alp Grüm, where drinks and a glacier fondue are served. The trip back through the snowy mountains sparkling in the light of the full moon is bewitchingly beautiful. Excursions by PostBus The picturesque village of Soglio in the Val Bregaglia is one of many charming destinations you can visit in comfort by PostBus. Other scenic options include a trip to the Italian market town of Chiavenna or a ride on the Palm Express along the shores of Lake Como to Lugano. A bird’s-eye view of the Engadin The highest pinnacles of the Eastern Alps seem close enough to touch on a thrilling helicopter ride over the Bernina massif. If you like to feel the wind in your face as you fly, you may prefer a tandem descent by hang-glider or paraglider with a qualified pilot: a gentler experience, but just as memorable. Top tobogganing: Preda/Darlux–Bergün On a world-famous railway to top-class sledging: the Preda/Darlux–Bergün toboggan adventure promises 10 kilometres of pure pleasure. First, riders take the train up the Albula line to Preda before setting off on toboggans towards Bergün. Along the way, the chair lift up to Darlux offers an additional thrill: a steep run all the way down to Bergün.

THE ENGADIN â€“ A WORLD OF SUBLIME ALPINE BEAUTY. Panoramic view of the Bernina massif from the Diavolezza
EXPERIENCE AUTHENTIC NATURE
Fair y-tale winter landscape by the River Inn, near Celerina
The wonderful climate of the Engadin The Engadinâ€™s elevated location, high in the Alps, creates unique weather patterns. Experts refer matter-of-factly to a dry, continental climate. As variations in temperature between day and night are as great as those between summer and winter, conditions for winter sports are superb. The dry cold preserves the freshly fallen snow so that the landscape keeps its white, fairy-tale appearance throughout the winter, and sports enthusiasts enjoy powder conditions rivalled only by those in the Rocky Mountains. All the same, this southerly mountain valley enjoys exceptionally high levels of sunshine.
The Engadin lakes In winter, the Engadin lakes freeze over and are covered by a thick blanket of snow, creating a vast white expanse that adds to the sense of boundless freedom of this inspiring high valley. These wide-open spaces offer visitors a beautiful setting for walking, cross-country skiing and snowkiting, and provide a dramatic venue for exclusive events such as the spectacular Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz, the original Cricket on Ice, the legendary White Turf horse races and the traditional Engadin Ski Marathon.
Sparkling snow crystals The combination of low temperatures, dry air and snow makes everything in the Engadin sparkle. On particularly cold, sunny days, the air appears to be full of millions of tiny diamonds, glittering in the sunlight. Unusual phenomena take place on the ground, too – for example, in the Val Trupchun. As the sun rarely reaches the valley floor in winter, snow crystals grow up to 4 centimetres (2 inches) across and glisten magically in the light.
National Park Centre, Zernez Explore, discover and learn in a thrilling and creative setting: at the four interactive exhibition areas of the Swiss National Park’s visitor centre in Zernez, guests experience the endless and enchanting variety of nature in a completely new way. Further information: www.engadin.stmoritz.ch / national-park-centre
White giants: the glaciers of the Engadin Horse-drawn sleigh rides Among the highlights of the magnificent Engadin landscape are the 173 glaciers. Draped majestically around the highest peaks of the Eastern Alps, they extend for more than 40 square km (15 square miles), making up 4 per cent of the region’s surface area. Crowning them all is the Morteratsch Glacier – at around 6 km (4 miles), the longest in the Engadin. Other glaciers, too – with evocative names such as Roseg, Tschierva, Sella and Pers – bear witness to the power of nature. Hidden under a winter blanket of snow, however, the ice giants are barely discernible. At most, you can make out the odd crevasse, offering a glimpse of the eerie blue interior. Just as intriguing are the ice caves, created in summer when the relatively warm meltwater makes its way out of the glacier. Exploring the ice giants independently, however, is dangerous; anyone seeking to discover the glaciers’ secrets is well advised to book an expert guide.
One of the most relaxing and enjoyable experiences on offer in the Engadin is a romantic ride in a horse-drawn sleigh into one of the idyllic side valleys or along the snow-covered frozen lakes. You can arrange rides directly with the sleigh drivers; local tourist information offices provide full details of the various services on offer.

St. Moritz is the birthplace of winter tourism; two Olympic Winter Games (in 1928 and 1948) and numerous ski and bobsleigh world championships have sealed its unique global reputation. In winter, St. Moritz’s metropolitan lifestyle and its direct access to the beautiful mountain on its doorstep, Corviglia, promise a ski experience of a very special kind. Champagne climate St. Moritz is also famous worldwide for its “champagne climate” – not a reference to its champagne-drinking guests, but to the sparkling and invigorating climate of the Engadin, which in winter is characterised by exceptionally dry, clear air. Olympia Bob Run, St. Moritz–Celerina The Olympia Bob Run from St. Moritz to Celerina is the oldest bob run in the world – as well as the only natural-ice track that still hosts international races annually. Over a history lasting more than 110 years, it has hosted races for two Olympic Winter Games as well as
36 world championships. You can find out what it feels like to hurtle down the 1,722-metre (1,883-yard) natural-ice bob run by booking a guest ride with a professional pilot and brakeman, experiencing speeds of up to 135 km/h (84 mph). Cresta Run The legendary Cresta Run in St. Moritz is the birthplace of the sport of skeleton racing. With a length of 1,200 metres (1,300 yards) and 10 corners, the Cresta – like the bob run – is built anew every winter using snow and water. Riders hurtle down it at an average top speed of around 130 km/h (80 mph) – travelling head-first, chin a mere 10 centimetres (4 inches) above the ice. Magical St. Moritz St. Moritz’s impressive Grand Hotels charm guests with their glamorous atmosphere and innovative gourmet cuisine, but hotels in other categories also promise consistently high standards. In addition, numerous fine restaurants crowned with Michelin stars and GaultMillau points serve a wealth of gastronomic treats to please every palate. Stroll around St. Moritz’s shops and you are guaranteed some happy surprises. Elegant designer boutiques, traditional sports suppliers, tempting souvenir and gift shops, and mouth-watering delicatessens all add to the wide variety of shopping on offer in this chic Alpine town. Turn into one of the side alleys and you will find quaint shops where you can pick up genuine Engadin products – and perhaps make the odd lucky find to round off your shopping adventure.
St. Moritz – since 1864 Winter tourism was born in St. Moritz in 1864, when the first British guests spent the winter in the Engadin. The variet y of activities and attractive lifest yle form the basis of a successful tourism sector throughout the region – in particular, superb skiing and a wealth of high-class international events.
The resort’s glittering array of nightspots extends from the historic bars of the grand hotels to fashionable lounge bars, legendary clubs and a wealth of other venues – including the Casino St. Moritz at the Kempinski Grand Hotel des Bains. The Gastro Guide and the Shopping Guide are available from local tourist information offices.

Return of the Olympic Games Since 2010, young athletes aged between 14 and 18 have been able to gain their first Olympic experiences at the Youth Olympic Games.

St. Moritz is staging the monobob, skeleton, luge and ice skating events, held on the Olympia Bob Run, St. Moritz–Celerina, and on frozen Lake St. Moritz. The Olympic spirit returns once again to St. Moritz for the first time since the games of 1928 and 1948.

In addition to the OVAV ERVA Pool, Spa & Sports Centre St. Moritz, and the MTZ Heilbad St. Moritz, numerous hotels offer superb wellness facilities – especially the five-star properties. www.stmoritz.ch / wellness-fitness-en

The vibrant capital of the Upper Engadin is not only the region’s political centre but also the focus for the
traditional Engadin way of life – as well as home to the “vertical” Mineral Baths & Spa. Samedan owes
T +41 81 851 00 60
its importance to its location at the heart of the Upper Engadin: the town serves as a hub for the Rhae-
F +41 81 851 00 66
tian Railway and is also home to a small international airport – a prized launch site for glider pilots. The
Badrutt family, which went on to write hotel history in St. Moritz, originated here; among many historical
www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /
features is the magnificent 16th-century Chesa Planta. The picturesque and buzzing village with its stately
traditional Engadin houses may appear idyllic, but the charm is genuine: local people (and two museums) ensure that traditional Engadin culture is very much alive. Visitors can easily reach all parts of the Engadin from here, including the summit of the local mountain, Muottas Muragl, with its stunning panoramic views; the peak is also home to the first plus-energy hotel in the Alps, the Romantik Hotel Muottas Muragl. Close by, there’s winter sports action to suit every taste: at the Survih ski area, the cross-country ski centre and on the thrilling toboggan run.

by, and St. Moritz is only 15 minutes’ drive away. For cross-country skiers, the trails begin right on the
doorstep. The pretty village with its 200 residents and typical Engadin houses, where traditional Ro-
www.engadin.stmoritz.ch /en /
mansh culture is part of day-to-day life, lies directly on the course of the Engadin Skimarathon. Madulain
is also an ideal base for exploring other trails of the Engadin’s cross-country network, which extends for up to 230 kilometres (143 miles). This has trails suitable for all skiers from beginners to athletes – and pet lovers, too: the only dog trails in the Engadin stretch between Madulain and S-chanf. Sun-blessed Madulain, idyllically located beside the River Inn, is also the starting point for a number of superbly prepared winter walking trails.

Terms of contract and conditions of travel Page 81
Terms of contract and conditions of travel This catalogue was compiled by Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG on behalf of the service providers – hotels, airlines, etc. – listed therein.
01 Scope of these terms of contract and conditions of travel These terms of contract and conditions of travel govern the legal relationship between you and the service provider insofar as your contractual partner does not present terms and conditions at the time of booking. Unless expressly specified otherwise at the time of booking, your contract will be with the companies providing services, even if you place your booking through the Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG. In such cases, the Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG acts merely as an agent between you and the service provider; your contract is direct with the provider of the service booked.
02 Conclusion of contract and services provided Your contract with the service provider becomes legally binding when the booking office unconditionally confirms your booking. If the same booking office arranges other services and packages for you that are not booked from a publication of Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG, these terms of contract and conditions of travel shall not apply. The services provided will be as specified in the booking confirmation and in the details provided of the service on offer. Unless stated otherwise in the product description, your activity will begin at the location specified in the contract.
03 Prices and terms of payment All prices are quoted in Swiss francs and are to be paid in Swiss francs. Unless otherwise agreed in your booking or in the booking confirmation, the price of your trip shall be payable in full upon booking. If the price is not paid in full by the date due, your contractual partner shall be entitled to withhold services, to withdraw from the contract and to demand the cancellation costs listed in paragraph 05. Note that if you book your trip through a different booking office such as a travel agent, this booking office may make additional charges for advice, reservations, etc.
04 Price and programme changes The service providers and Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG are entitled to change the details of services and prices before a contract is signed. You will be informed of this at the time of booking. After the contract has been signed, prices can be increased up to three weeks prior to the beginning of your trip if the transport or accommodation costs, the charges for certain services or the exchange rate have increased. Changes to the programme and scope of services may also arise owing to unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances. Should any of the essential features of your trip change
considerably and if you cannot be offered an appropriate alternative, you have the right to cancel your booking. In these circumstances, price increases of more than 10% count as a considerable change. Unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances may necessitate a change of programme even after your trip has commenced. Your service provider will endeavour to provide appropriate alternatives in such cases. The Engadin St. Moritz Tourism Organisation will not refund any services not delivered and accepts no liability for programme changes.
05 Changes or cancellations requested by you If you wish to change your booking or to cancel your trip, you must notify the booking office directly. Any travel documents you have already received must be returned to the booking office at the same time. A service charge of CHF 60.– per person, max. CHF 120.– per order, will be levied for cancellations and changes (affecting names of travellers, dates, accommodation or additional services, etc.). If you cancel your trip or change your booking (name, date, accommodation, additional services, etc.) less than 31 days prior to departure, you will also be charged, in addition to any processing fee, for the following costs as a percentage of the total cost of your trip: • 30 to 15 days before departure 30% of the package price • 14 to 8 days before departure 50% of the package price • 7 to 1 days before departure 80% of the package price • on the day of departure and in the event of no-show 100% of the package price The critical date is that on which the booking office receives notice of your intentions; if that is a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, the next working day shall apply.
06 Late arrival or early departure of your own accord You are responsible for arriving on time. Should you arrive late, you cannot claim a refund for any services you have missed owing to your late arrival. Should you depart early, your expenses will not be refunded.
Early departure or exclusion occasioned by the service provider The service provider is entitled to end the service/trip prematurely in the event of unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances that would render fulfilment of contract impossible, considerably more difficult or dangerous for those taking part. If no alternative is possible, the service provider shall be exempted from its obligation to fulfil the contract. Your claim to a refund in such cases shall be limited to unjust enrichment. The service provider can exclude participants from the trip if their actions or omissions justify such a step. In such a case, the cost of the package shall still be due in full and there shall be no refund for services not received. Any claims for compensation are excluded.
08 Liability Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG and the service providers accept no liability, to the extent provided for by law, for slight negligence on their own part or that of their agents. No liability is accepted for loss or damage to valuables, cameras/camcorders etc., fur coats or other expensive items of clothing, mobile phones, credit cards, cash and other valuable objects or for unlawful use of the same. For packages, liability for anything other than personal injury shall be limited to twice the cost of the package. The limitations to liability specified in paragraphs 04 to 07 also apply.
09 Travel insurance Participants are strongly advised to take out travel insurance to provide cover for cancellation or early departure, incl. accident or sickness.
10 Applicable law and jurisdiction The contract between you and the service providers or Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG is governed exclusively by Swiss law. Exclusive place of jurisdiction for any disputes arising will be St. Moritz, Switzerland.
