St Moritz Cable Cars, Funiculars and Chair Lifts
Ride the cable car from St. Moritz-Dorf (1856m) to Corviglia (2486m). There are 13 cable cars, funiculars and chair lifts to choose from. Lift tickets are available at many locations and often included with vacation packages. Spring and fall are the off season, so don’t expect as many lifts to be available.
Take a cable car from Corviglia to Piz Nair (3057m) in the Albula Range. This is an international championship downhill ski run.
