Winter breaks in Grisons
Snow? Check. Panoramic scenery? Check.The ski area around St. Moritz has a rich sporting history. The town became world famous when it hosted the Olympic Games and World Ski Championships. It doesn’t take much to host such events: just perfect snow and a breathtaking backdrop. And it has those in abundance. Thanks to its altitude and modern snow-making systems, the area is known as one where you can reliably find snow. On the slopes, cross-country ski trails or by the lake – snow sports enthusiasts will find perfect conditions wherever they go. The Engadin is a sporting winter wonderland, and the Giardino Mountain sits right at the heart of it. The mountain is calling!
Deep relaxation and regenerationWith a Finnish sauna, sanarium, steam room, indoor pool and jacuzzi, a visit to the 2,000 m2 dipiù Spa is sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated – or simply relaxed. There’s no better way to wind down after a day of rapid descents on the slopes, or to warm up after a snowy hike. If you crave a little indulgence and deep relaxation, you’re sure to find just what you need among the range of massages, therapies and beauty treatments at the spa. And anyone who doesn’t feel like heading out into the great outdoors can enjoy the state-of-the-art fitness room, complete with Technogym equipment. For preventive and long-lasting relaxation, there’s no better choice than the Ayurveda by Giardino treatments and offers. Holidays for the body and soul.

Winter sports in and around St. Moritz
1/4 Skiing and snowboarding– Who invented them? The Norwegians. Although some people in the Engadin are starting to have their doubts. The four large ski resorts of Corviglia/Piz Nair, Corvatsch, Diavolezza/Lagalb and Zuoz, together with five other smaller areas, offer winter sports enthusiasts a total of 88 fabulous slopes to explore.
Designed for skiers: Access to more than 88 slopes in the local area • Discounted ski tickets (conditions apply) • Day tours, ski courses and equipment (fees apply)
2/4 Cross-country skiing– Once upon a time, there was something called cross-country skiing. Nowadays it’s called ‘skating’ or ‘Nordic cruising’. But nothing has really changed except the name: skiers use their own powerful movement to drive themselves forwards on narrow skis. And there are more than 230 kilometres of trails to discover in the Engadin winter wonderland. But cross-country skiing is not for the faint-hearted: achieving 95% muscle activation, it is one of the most effective forms of exercise there is. The scenery along the twelve-kilometre-long route around Lakes Sils, Silvaplana and Champfer is particularly spectacular. And it’s practically on the Giardino Mountain's doorstep – no queuing or lifts.

3/4 For all the family– Skiing and snowboarding is not everyone's cup of tea – and cross-country skiing has to be learnt, too. If you still want to discover the stunning mountain scenery, you are spoiled for choice in the Engadin: Sledging and tobogganing, ice skating on frozen lakes, snowshoeing, snowkiting, romantic carriage rides through the Fex valley, or a classic snowball fight at the back of the hotel... Boredom, what's that? We don’t know!
4/4 Heli-skiing– Pristine snow, icy silence and the incomparable feeling of being the first to make a mark – that's heli-skiing. First, float over the majestic Alpine massif in the Mountain Flyers Airbus helicopter, then glide through deep, fresh snow on deserted ground. Both are an experience in and of themselves; together they are an unforgettable adrenaline rush. Have a go during heli-skiing weeks, or on request. Ready? Set, jump!
Designed for the adventurous: Excursions are available in the ski areas of the Upper Engadin, Clariden-Hüfifirn, Bernese Oberland and Zermatt • State-of-the-art helicopter technology from Airbus thanks to the partnership with Mountain Flyers • Preparation and support from experienced heli-ski guides • Heli-skiing weeks for an adrenaline rush that lasts several days
