Skiing in St Moritz

  • March 22, 2013 · 4:00 PM

Dear All,

The idea would be to go skiing in the St Moritz area (candidate for the Winter Olympics 2018). Both the Corvatsch and Corviglia ski area have a wide variety of slopes for everyone from beginner to expert. I have selected mid March so that we will still have good snow. Skis can be rented locally if need be, however it is better to bring your own skis.

We would be staying at the local youth hostel (quite modern). I have taken an option for 25 spots. Prices given to me are:

# for 4 bed room with washbasin (showers on corridor): 60 francs

# for 2 bed room with washbasin (showers on corridor): 74 francs

# double room with showers : 107 francs

Prices are by person per night and include accommodation, breakfast and dinner. In case you are not a youth hostel member, then please add 3 francs per night.

The idea is to take the 4.12 pm train departing zurich HB. 16.12 zurich hb arrival chur 17.43, departure chur at 17.58 arrival 19.58 st moritz. Departure 20.06 st moritz bahnhof, arrival st moritz sonne 20.14.
Return on sunday - departure 17.02 st moritz arrival zurich 20.21.

IMPORTANT

1. Please note that everyone is responsible for their own acts. It is up to each individual to take out appropriate insurance (off-piste, rescue, hospitality, third -party liability etc.) and by no means this organizer can be held responsible in any way for organizing this ski-weekend.

2. I made a group booking directly with the hostel for accommodation, breakfast and dinner. This means that parking spaces, drinks etc. are not included in therefore needs to be settled directly by the person consuming those.

3. Since it is a group booking, I would expect people to have more flexibility than when making an individual booking. Whereas I try to accommodate room types as much as possible, sometimes depending on the rooms allocated to me and the number of males/females, I need to make compromises and hope I can count on your understanding.

4. In the youth hostel they typically have a fixed menu with salad bar, soup, warm meal and dessert. Whereas I can understand that certain persons do not eat certain menus, please be proactive about it, let me know in advance and I can try to ask for other options. Do not contact me the day itself and complain that there is only menu X.

5. Refund policy - the refund policy is the same as always. In order to avoid that people make last minute changes with no substantiated reason and then claim a full refund, it has been decided that there will be no refund. Whether you can-t make it, whether you missed the train, whether you got sick, whether your business planning changes... it is up to you to find a replacement person.

6. It is always good to note down a number of phone numbers of colleagues which you can call, just in case.

  • Irina

    Hello, is there anybody who likes to join me for skiing a bit more relaxed today? Black slopes are fine but not at full speed.

    March 24, 2013

  • Murray

    I'm in the train, will arrive st Moritz at 9.58am., is there a plan on where to meet for lunch ?

    looking at where the hostel is it probably makes sense that I just leave my bag in a locker at the train station and go straight up the mountain, make sense?

    March 16, 2013

    • Patrick

      Just to let you know that the reception in the hotel is not answering my emails anymore - presumably also due to the many chances in our group. For John and others, as you can imagine I can-t continue making chances till a couple of hours before the trip - thanks for your understanding.

      March 21, 2013

    • Yaël

      Hi john! You can have it! Will send you my email with details this evening. Thanks and have fun!

      March 21, 2013

  • Patrick

    From St. Moritz Railway Station take the No. 9 bus in the direction of St. Moritz Bad, and alight at the bus stop ‘Youth Hostel’. The bus stop is located in the immediate vicinity of the Youth Hostel.

    • Serene

      Hi all! fyi I'm in st moritz now and it seems the last number 9 runs just before 1900

      March 21, 2013

  • Patrick

    For those on the 16.12 train, suggest to meet at 15.45 -15.50 under the big weird angel. At 15.50 we will walk towards the train and get our spots in the front of the train (another 5 -7 min walk). If you are late, please go to the train directly.

    • Patrick

      There are various Cristinas and Maria Cristinas, so it would be helpful to either have the last of person (I can check then payment) or even better refer to your meetup name.

      March 20, 2013

    • Maria C.

      Actually I have a double room paid many months ago. I was looking for space for a friend, but he already found an alternative accomodation. Futhermore I don't need my booking in the double room, so if any lady still wants to come, please contact me. Cheers.

  • Nadia

    Hi Patrick, just to confirm the address of the hostel is Via Surpunt 60 St. Moritz Bad? Thank you, Nadia

    March 19, 2013

  • Murray

    Hi Partick,
    I'm still not sure whether I'll make it on Friday evening. It may be that I come on Saturday morning. I hope this doesnt disrupt the plans, but I wont really know until friday.
    Thanks, Murray

    March 20, 2013

    • Patrick

      This is no problem for me. I certainly hope you can join us on friday eve since if you would come on saturday, given that it takes 3 hours to get here, before you start skiing it will be noon.

      March 20, 2013

  • Maria B.

    Hi Patrick! Christina takes my spot on the trip to St Moritz. Thank you for considering her!

  • Wolfgang L

    Hi all,

    due to my injury from Davos last Sunday I can^t make it and offer my spot in this way. Hope for someone being interested and wish fun to all attenders. I close the ski season. See you again hiking in a few weeks. Wolfgang

    March 14, 2013

    unless I am mistaken -Have not gotten any feedback regarding dinner for friday evening from Arjan, Bruno, Sabina, Wolfgang, Jaja, annette, maria B, kerstin R, mackinga(2), andre and marite, danielle Z, murray, ben. I am currently assuming you are not on the train and will not make it to dinner. If this is wrong, please advise before tomorrow night at the latest. I need to finalize bookings somewhere hence my request months ago to answer on this one.

    March 5, 2013

    • Chiara M.

      Hi Patrick, I will not manage to take the early train, so I'll meet you there and can not join dinner. Thanks Chiara

      March 6, 2013

    • Arjan S.

      I am sorry Patrick I am in.. but please leave it, if it doesnt work out no problem!

    Dear Patrick
    sorry I only looked in here now. I and guest will come by car and would like to eat dinner in the hostel since we will be there early afternoon friday. If thats not possible anymore we will find somewhere else to eat that night.

    March 14, 2013

  • Patrick

    Dinner is confirmed and scheduled for 20.30 for our group. So please upon arrival first go for dinner and then check in, otherwise we start eating around 9pm and the hotel will not be happy. Thanks for your understanding.

    I have made a group booking for 35 people on the following tract.
    departure friday 22.03 at 16.12 zurich hb arrival chur 17.43, departure chur at 17.58 arrival 19.58 st moritz. Departure 20.06 st moritz bahnhof, arrival st moritz sonne 20.14.
    Return on sunday - departure 17.02 st moritz arrival zurich 20.21. In case some of you do not know, when travelling in group in Switzerland on major axes within the country, trains are usually busy and hence a reservation is needed. SBB allow to make reservations without cost, however if the group does not show up, I as organizer am charged 50 swiss francs. I am happy to make group reservations but I would not like to be the only one in the train on sunday and would therefor appreciate if not everyone leaves early on sunday otherwise I do not to make group reservations on return trip.

    March 10, 2013

    Of course it is still possible to take the 16.37 train or 17.02 train however it is not possible to do so as a group. Thanks for your understanding.

    I will come by car (there by 8.30 pm), but i made my own booking in the hostel. Anyone want to join for a ride? I have 3 places free in my station wagon.

    February 26, 2013

  • Patrick

    There is a train at 16.37 arriving at 8pm in St Moritz and hence by bus we should be in hotel around 8.15 - 8.20 PM. As an exception the hotel offered to serve dinner at 8.30 PM, later is not possible.
    Please update your status on meetup and advice whether you will be on 16.37 train and/or go by car and get there by 8pm, so that I can tell them exactly how many meals need to be prepared. Thx.

    Dear Petya, Olga, Wolfgang

    I reimbursed Christina K. already. I was thinking of deleting some spaces, however currently I still have available 1 room for 4 persons (in which I could put Olga, Petya and 1 or 2 other females). @ Wolfgang, I could offer you a room for 1 person.

    If Olga and Petya are fine with it then alternatively also the 4 bed room could be shared with 2 males but I would not do this unless I have your authorization.

    Petya, Olga and/or other females and Wolfgang please advise ASAP as to whether you are interested or not. If not, I will cancel the 4 bed room as well as 1 individual room.

    January 26, 2013

    • Wolfgang L

      The room for one person is ok for me, thanks a lot. My payment was 126,- CHF, please advise me the additional costs.

      January 27, 2013

      2+2-Solution in a 4 bed room also ok.
