However, this year’s events calendar has the power to WOW even St Moritz’s most frequent and luxurious visitors. Open air music concerts, fireside meet and greets with local snowsports stars and mesmerizing raconteurs are sure to amaze with their memories and experiences while sampling some of the most traditional and delicious Swiss delicacies.
