Celebrate 150 Years of St Moritz; Timeless Luxury and Vintage Charm

Lots of things get better with age… cheese, wine. Where better to enjoy these two vintage delights than in a truly vintage setting!?

150 years of St Moritz

Fireworks on the Frozen Lake

With all the charm of a chocolate box, St Moritz celebrates its 150th winter of snowsports this year! The Polo world cup on the frozen lake, the annual vintage car rally and the stylish, soulful sounds of the blues festival already transport you back in time to the authentic charm and romance of the early days of alpinism.

A warm Canadian welcome with a continental twist: Mont Tremblant

Karen September 18th, 2012

North America?  Europe?  Which is better?  Well I’m not going to get into that right now – that’s a debate that requires a lot of time and probably a few drinks to help it along.  How about a compromise?  Tremblant is in the heart of French speaking Canada – a place with an identity all of its own but which takes influences from both Europe and Canada.

Tremblant doesn’t have the traditional cobbled streets and crooked farmhouses of St Martin de Belleville or Morzine, and it doesn’t have the fashionable bars and boutiques of Vail or Aspen, but it is purpose-built perfection with many coloured buildings that twinkle on the hillside giving it an almost Disney-esque appearance.
