Sporting achievement not your top priority? Then just relax – and look forward to a day on the Corviglia with fresh alpine air, glorious views and delicious cuisine. The mountain may be known for winter and summer sports, but it also offers plenty of gentler pleasures.
… the Corviglia offers visitors a bewitching variety of leisurely scenic walks over panoramic mountain ridges, across flower-filled alpine meadows and along lush pastures. Easy pushchair-accessible walks – such as the Schellenursli Trail from Salastrains to St. Moritz, or Heidi’s Flower Trail (which is even wheelchair-accessible) from Chantarella to the Heidi Hut and on to Salastrains – are ideal for leisurely strolls, with plenty of interest along the way.
The Chantarella-Corviglia funicular carries walkers in comfort from St. Moritz up to the heights, where magnificent panoramic paths lead in all directions. The trails up on the Piz Nair may demand a certain level of fitness and energy, but the steady climbs feel like a detail compared with the spectacular natural landscapes all around. On clear sunny days, of which we enjoy about 320 a year, the views extend across the whole Engadin lake plateau almost as far as Maloja.
Skiing need not be all about speed, adrenalin and action. A focus on relaxation, awareness and inspiration boosts enjoyment of the sparkling winter landscapes and the spectacular panoramic views across the wide Engadin valley. That is why piste no. 1, the “Paradiso Piste”, is completely devoted to the pleasure and relaxation aspect of winter sports. Here, you can enjoy gliding gently from one wooden bench beside the piste to the next, to soak up a little more sun at each one…
The “Paradiso Piste” is also the world’s first yoga piste, offering four stops at which skiers or snowboarders can practise “Yoga on Snow”, either independently or under expert guidance. The result: an even deeper level of relaxation and an even higher level of bliss!
Fresh mountain air ensures a healthy appetite. Just as well that the name “Corviglia” stands for gourmet delights, in both summer and winter. Already more than 50 years ago, the pioneering chef Hartly Mathis gave a new meaning to “haute cuisine” at high altitude, and today you can enjoy a wide range of gourmet treats at the trendy bars, cosy refuges and chic mountain restaurants with their spacious sun terraces. At every level on the mountain – high up at summit stations, beside the pistes or just a few minutes from St. Moritz – these venues promise the heights of pleasure and relaxation.
