St. Moritz is the wintertime glamour capital of Europe, rising to prominence after hosting two early Winter Olympic Games in 1924 and 1932. The city is perhaps the most exclusive skiing destination in the world, with world-class hotels, restaurants, and shopping to match. In addition to its lake and surrounding Alps, the region boats a “champagne climate” with 322 days of sun per year.
Davos and its partner village Klosters form the other well-known skiing area in southeastern Switzerland. Davos is best known for hosting the annual World Economic Forum, but nonetheless is a destination all on its own. The city lies in an Alpine valley, surrounded by exceptional skiing and hiking on all sides.
