Snow is pretty much guaranteed in Pontresina, and you will be spoilt for choice, with three legendary Swiss ski resorts practically right outside your hotel room: Diavolezza, Corviglia, and Corvatsch. The high alpine location (1,800 to 3,303 metres above sea level) means that the finest powder snow and perfectly groomed slopes are as natural as the coffee you enjoy with your daily breakfast ritual. The region boasts a multitude of panoramic and glacier runs for carvers, World Cup courses for experts, and easy, sunny slopes for beginners. Pristine winter dreams for freeriders and ski tourers to Diavolezza and dream trails for cross-country skiers are all on the menu. The “dessert menu” is just as impressive: ice climbing along meter-long icicles, snowkiting on the frozen Lago Bianco or ice skating or curling on natural ice rinks.
