SUITCASE Partnership | SWISS
As temperatures begin to drop and summer memories fade, our thoughts are turning to ski season.
This year, we’re helping you to circumnavigate your annual ski trip WhatsApp group – which inevitably goes round in circles before you end up in the same resort yet again, no doubt with some unwanted plus ones in tow – by teaming up with SWISS to send one lucky reader and a friend to the glamorous resort of St Moritz.
The airline of Switzerland and first choice for skiers thanks to free ski and snowboard carriage, SWISS will fly you in style to Zurich, from where you’ll jump on a characteristically punctual train to St Moritz (thanks to Switzerland Tourism) – one of the chicest resorts in the Alps with slopes among the best in the world.
You’ll be calling five-star Suvretta House “home” for three nights. Secluded among parkland, this sumptuous alpine retreat opened in 1912 and is the definition of old-school luxury. Easy to spot thanks to its belle-epoque exterior completed by fairy-tale turrets, the chateau also boasts a private ski lift ready to transport you to nearly 130 miles of piste. This is the place to stay in glitzy Moritz.
Come morning, tuck into complimentary breakfast served by bevy of waistcoated waiters – 12 different types of muesli point to the scope of the offering here – then it’s off to sort your ski hire and pick up your passes, both kindly arranged by the hotel and included in your stay.
But that’s not all. Suvretta House will also be pampering you both with an ilā spa treatment – after a day tearing up the slopes, it’s got to be a signature massage.
Finally, dine at Suvretta’s Grand Restaurant on any night of your choosing. A jacket-and-tie affair, this is serious fine-dining – think sole meunière followed by crêpes suzette – in wood-panelled surrounds filled by a chic European crowd.
Thinking about it, it’s probably best to join that WhatsApp group after all, simply so you can troll your friends with images of your St Moritz soirée…
