St. Moritz - Switzerland

The best backcountry from the Alps, North America and beyond!

It requires a bit of travel to get to the main freeriding area of Corvatsch (about 20minutes by bus) but it does benefit from being quieter than the rest of St. Moritz – most tourists stay closer to home – as well as offering top drawer powder. The slopes suit all levels of ability and offers a variety of terrain including a fun run through the trees back down to St. Moritz itself. Given that the slopes are north facing and situated at 2500m, good snow is almost guaranteed.
