Snow Reports

Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

A snowHead
(Who has registered and logged into)
Location: snowHeadLand
1. Resort: St Moritz
2. Country: Switzerland
3. Domain: Engadine Valley
4. Author: Whitegold
5. Date: Mar 2007
6. Our holiday: Small group of couples
7. Website :
8. Basics : Southeast Switzerland. Zurich Airport is the closest major hub
9. Lift system : Lots of large trams. Gives a big-mountain feel. Slow at times. Scorecard = 7 / 10
10. The terrain : Good onpiste. Plenty for all standards for a week. Three disjointed ski areas, but served by a regular skibus. Attractive glacial scenery. 7 / 10
11. The snow : Very good snow. Coverage top to bottom. Nine days of nonstop sun. 9 / 10
12. Off-piste : Very good offpiste. Many steepish slopes. Crowds are uncommon. 8 / 10
13. The resort : Unique atmosphere. The place reeks of money. Lots of trophy wives. Walking on the frozen lake is way cool. Nowhere else in the Alps, or the world, like it. 10 / 10
14. Food : It is an upscale region, near Italy. Most places are fine. 7 / 10
15. Accommodation : Make sure you stay in Dorf, the main town. Everything is here, from basic rooms to premium palaces. Avoid Bad -- it is away from the buzz. 10 / 10
16. Costs: Prices are above-average, but not ruinous. You get what you pay for. 7 / 10
17. Conclusion: The world's number one allround ski resort. It is a better experience than Zermatt, Courchevel 1850, Lech, Cortina and Aspen.

Total scorecard = 65 / 80 (81%). For comparison, Zermatt gets 64 / 80 (80%).
