Winter sports purists seeking the ultimate skiing experience are unabashedly drawn to St. Moritz, Switzerland, the “birthplace of winter sports.” And now the experience is all the more enticing: guests receive a free ski pass when they book a stay of two or more nights at the luxurious Badrutt’s Palace Hotel.
Stay (through April 1, 2013) at this grande dame of hotels, which since 1896 has hosted royalty and celebrities alike, and gain access to 215 miles of groomed runs, three snow parks and 34 mountain restaurants for an après-ski respite. The ski pass includes access to mountain rails, cable cars and public transportation.
Upgrade to Badrutt’s special “All About Ski” package, which includes the price of a double room for seven nights and all the trappings of a dream ski weekend: gear, instruction, lift tickets and dinner.
