Pontresina in short

  • Close to ski areas Diavolezza, Lagalb and St. Moritz
  • Most central cross-country ski location of Oberengadin
  • Hardly any traffic in the village
  • Less expensive than St Moritz

In the highest side valley of Oberengadin lies the peaceful village called Pontresina. The village has some beautiful hotels, lovely Engadin houses and a church with 13th and 15th century frescos. The village is a beloved destination among hikers, mountaineers and winter sports fans. Nearby Pontresina are two ski areas: Diavolezza and Piz Lagalb. St. Moritz too can be reached in 10 minutes. Cross-country skiers can indulge in more than 200 kilometres of trails. The high ski run on Diavolezza is definitely worth the effort because of the impressive views.
