The Snow Polo World Cup St. Moritz is the only high goal tournament in the world on snow.

The three days of the tournament stand for first-class polo, which is played against the magnificent backdrop of the snow-capped mountains of the Engadine and social events at the lake and in the first-class hotels in St. Moritz.

The best freestyle skiers in the world meet in Corvatsch Park. Pure action in the slopestyle course.

Every March the FIS Freeski World Cup takes place at Corvatsch. The focus is on the day’s victory and 50,000 francs prize money. Around 130 athletes from all over the world will ride, jump and slide through the spectacular slopestyle course.

The young freeskiers offer the public a great show with acrobatic tricks. During the doubles and triples, they fly up to 30 metres far and 8 metres high through the air. But also the slides and jibs on the so-called rails make for astonished faces.

CORVATSCH SNOW NIGHT
Every Friday night

Swing over the longest illuminated slope in Switzerland and party with friends until late into the night: Friday evening is even more fun. Every Friday the Corvatsch is in the spotlight and opens the freshly prepared, 4.2 km long runway from 19 o’clock.

The Restaurant Murtèl at the middle station provides a breather and refreshment break between the intoxicating downhill runs. The pizza from the wood stove tastes even better at night. After the ski swing you meet at the legendary Hossa Bar, where the party continues with hip swings.
