Corviglia - St Moritz Skiing & Snowboarding

St Moritz's three separate ski areas of Corviglia, Corvatsch & Diavolezza Lagalb offer completely different skiing experiences. Corviglia is the standout for the majority of skiers & snowboarders with its modern lifts, sunny, wide-open intermediate terrain & perfect grooming. Most terrain is above the tree-line over 2,000m elevation, making skiing the resort in poor visibility a challenge for most.

See the Corviglia ski trail map.

Corviglia is a piste skiers paradise directly above St Moritz. Accessed by four different points in the valley, its 155km of south-aspect slopes are wonderful for combining fast turns & long lunches. Those starting early are rewarded at Corviglia as the piste trails will be deliciously perfect and totally deserted until after 10.30am (ish) when the glitterati finally get out. Mid-winter first tracks are wonderful as the sun starts to pop over the mountains to the south-east.

The off-piste freeride terrain is vast as well & includes everything from expert-only chutes to wide open alpine bowls. Small areas of north-facing terrain hold fresh lines for many days after the last snowfall.

Ski Lifts

As one would expect from a high falutin place like St Moritz, the ski lifts on the mountain are first class. its just that getting up to them ...... isn't!

Strangely, the worst place to access the ski area is from the centre of St Moritz via a two stage funicular. The villages of Celerina and St Moritz Bad (as in ‘spa’) on the fringes are better via gondola & cable car.

There are plans to replace the Corviglia's Signal cable car (St Moritz Bad) with a gondola & also to lift link Corviglia to Corvatsch via a gondola from the Signal car park to above Corvatsch’s Hahnensee run. A tasty prospect indeed & one that will turn St Moritz Corviglia into truly one of the great ski resorts of the world.

Lift Pass

From season 2018/19, all the St Moritz resorts are part of a dynamic lift pass price system determined by demand on any given day. Whilst there is a price ceiling, on days of low demand, lift ticket prices can be more than 30% cheaper when bought online.

Lift passes for each individual resort can be bought at a slightly reduced rate, dramatically reduced in the case of Diavolezza-Lagalb.

On-Piste Terrain

With 155km of piste trails, Corviglia is the largest of the St Moritz ski resorts for groomed runs. Unashamedly geared toward the masses, over 80km of the trails are rated for intermediates.

Novices & Beginners

Corviglia is St Moritz's best place for children and those wanting to learn to ski or board. Two base areas (Celerina & Suvretta) plus three higher elevation locations (Salastrains, Corviglia & Marguns) provide a great variety of ski areas for novices. As a real treat for kids and families, Salastrains is usually accessed via a horse drawn sleigh ride for new skiers - what a beautiful way to start skiing! our pick for the best all-round place to learn is Celerina, or if the weather is favourable, up the mountain at Corviglia.

Graduating beginners can progress up the mountain, but many of the easy (blue) trails are more traverses than anything truly interesting. The better trails are longer descents into Marguns. If staying in Celerina, beginners may feel the need to download on the gondola.


Corviglia is the mountain for you! The vast majority of on-piste terrain is gloriously intermediate, even the advanced trails! Let it rip & enjoy. The pick of them are the gloriously fast rollers in any direction from Munt da San Murezzan - a fabulous 600m vertical of grooming excellence.


As is often case in Europe, many of the advanced ski trails are more 'grey' then 'black' and those at Corviglia are no different. They are all wonderful to slide though. Racing the funicular down the hill from Corviglia down to Chantarella is a lark, as is the steepest trail i the resort from Fuorcla Grischa.

Off-Piste, Freeride & Backcountry


More information on Skiing & Snowboarding at Corviglia is coming .......... eventually. Aaargh, we running so far behind! In the mean time look at the photos in the Corvatsch, Diavolezza Lagalb& St Moritzpages. They tell a thousand words...
