What is St. Moritz?
Answer: A land of luxury nestled in the Swiss Alps. Or, more easily put- a city where I’d take my mother on vacation, only to watch her eat- as I wouldn’t be able to afford a plate for two at the restaurant.. It’s the Monte Carlo of ski, la crème de la crème, where white truffle pizza costs a humble sum of 100 CHF. (approx. $103)
Well, is it worth it?
As the Swiss would say, Ja. (Pronounced YAH)
I was lucky enough to be joined by my father who had his fair-share in the St. Mortiz world. Wanting me to experience this true winter wonderland, he showed me the ropes. So here's an insiders'-in to this "Champagne Climate" society, i’ve compiled my favorites into a
1-day Swiss extravaganza.
Best advice off the bat – don’t look at the price tag.. you’ll put yourself in a panic attack. I did.
A cup of coffee in the tea room with the best lake view in town
A complete Alice in Wonderland feel, the interior textile is insane
2. Ski (Obviously)
Hit the slopes early, there’s a world to explore
Oh and note, everyone is practically a professional skier out there
Take a ski break 2,672 meters above sea level with traditional European ski meals
Highly recommend- the polenta with melted blue cheese
4. Après Ski @ OvaVera
After an epic Swiss ski day, there's really no better way to do it ! Relax to the max
Wind down with their classic cocktail Prosecco with a dash of Peach Juice
A perfect place to people watch and admire the beautiful decor
6.Dinner @ Chesa Veglia
If you didn't know, now you know. This is the spot- impossible to get a table. A St. Moritz classic.
7. Night Out @ King's Club
The party only starts around 12 am.. Ski the day, Dance at night-
no sleeping here.
Plus If you’re lucky – and know someone –
There's Dracula & Members Only (however these are highly exclusive- not even Beyoncé’s sister would enter without knowig ‘someone’) no joke.
They praise and value 'true exclusivity' having generations on generations as returning guests
But most of all, I was astonished on the world class hospitality found in every corner. St. Moritz lives to serve others- no matter who you are. And that’s a price-tag worth millions.
Plus, they don't call it “Champagne Climate” for no reason-the sun shines as you ski with class down the infamous slopes of St. Moritz.
