Adventurous Heli-Ski Safari in the Swiss Alps with the Kulm Hotel, St. Moritz

September 2, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Kulm Hotel, St. Moritz

The summer is fleeting, but don't despair. Think ahead to winter vacay-- perhaps a glamorous sojourn in the Swiss Alps. Legendary for its snow-blanketed pistes and happening apres-ski scene, St. Moritz is considered the birthplace of winter sports holidays and Swiss tourism. Check into the Kulm Hotel, founded in 1856 by Johannes Badrutt, and embark on a heli-ski safari. The hotel can arrange a pampering stay that combines both adrenaline-pumping adventure and plenty of relaxation. From aboard the helicopter, you'll marvel at Switzerland's most beautiful ski regions, before getting up close with their white magnificence on a guided ski run from the Hüfifirn Glacier in the canton of Uri, followed by runs from the Sustenlimmi Glacier in the canton of Berne and in the Valais as well as in the renowned "White Arena" of Flims. Back at the five-star hotel, get a massage at the the Panorama Spa & Health Club before feasting on a five-course meal in the restaurant.
