St Moritz is s a high Alpine resort town in the Engadine in Switzerland at an elevation of circa 1,800 metres (5,910 ft) above sea level. It is Upper Engadine's major town and a municipality in the district of Maloja in the Swiss canton of Graubünden.

It lies on the southern slopes of the Albula Alps below the Piz Nair (3,056 m or 10,026 ft) overlooking the flat and wide glaciated valley of the Upper Engadine and its eponymous lake - Lake St.Moritz.

It hosted the Winter Olympics in 1928 and 1948 and is one of three cities to host it twice along with Innsbruck, Austria and Lake Plaid in the United States. It also hosted the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 1934, 1974, 2003 and 2017 and has hosted over 20 FIBT World Championships, four FIS Alpine World Ski Championships and more than 40 Engadin Skimarathons since 1969.

It has also hosted many other events, including some unlikely ones on the frozen lake in the 1970s and 1980s, such as a golf tournament (1979), a snow polo tournament (every year in January starting in 1985) and Cricket on Ice (1989). St. Moritz has also been the venue for many Sailing and Windsurfing World Championships.

It has been THE resort for winter sport vacations since the 19th century. Students from  Oxford  and  Cambridge universities went there to play each other, the predecessor of the recurring Ice Hockey Varsity Match was a 'bandy match' played in St. Moritz in 1885.

Additionally St. Moritz has hosted the FIBT World Championships (Bobsleigh and Skeleton racing) a record 21 times. Since 1985 it has hosted Snow Polo St. Moritz, a tournament featuring many of the world's finest teams and played on a specially marked out field on the frozen lake

St. Moritz is also extremely popular in the summer months as an altitude training base for distance athletes, particularly cyclists, runners and race walkers. Its popularity extends to the altitude, weather, world class athletics track and availability of paths and trails in the area.

Thanks to its favorable location St. Moritz enjoys over 300 days of sunshine a year. Every winter it hosts the ' White Turf' horse race on the frozen Lake St. Moritz attended by the affluent international jetsetters.

Popular pastimes include skiing, snowboarding, and hiking and nearby there is also the world-famous Cresta Run toboggan course.

The year round population is circa 5,600 with some 3,000 seasonal employees supporting hotels and rental units with a total of 13,000 beds. The Kulm Hotel St. Moritz is one of the largest luxury hotel in town.
