Posh at Its Peak at St. Moritz Hotels

“We sip the air…like French Champagne,” wrote composer Richard Strauss about Switzerland’s Engadin region, celebrated for its crisp, dry climate. A two-time host of the Winter Olympics, St. Moritz has been an alpine winter resort in the glacier-crowned Engadin since 1864 when hotelier Johannes Badrutt made a bet with his guests that they would enjoy a winter holiday as much as a Swiss summer. The British returned—and lingered from Christmas through Easter—and thus was born winter tourism more than 150 years ago.
