Designed for winter

Winter activities

Skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, sledding, ice hockey

Nira Alpina is located at the heart of Silvaplana-Surlej, deep in the beautiful Swiss Alps. Thus we are well placed to benefit from the winter seasons that bring thick snow, ice, chilly temperatures, and unique culinary discoveries. The views from our hotel in the winter are simply spectacular.

We are directly connected to the Corvatsch cable car, which offers our guests unrivalled access to the mountains that dominate the landscape around our hotel. As well as skiing and snowboarding, we offer our guests a wide selection of winter activities, including ice skating, winter hiking, sledding, bobsledding, horse riding, hang gliding, sky diving and Nordic walking.

  • Olympia Bob Run

    If the thrill of cool air blowing through your hair, bopping down an icy slope appeals… this one is for you! Home to a host of international races and the only natural ice-track in existence, the Olympia Bob Run at St Moritz is one of the oldest bobsleigh runs in the world.
    Weather permitting - bob taxi rides available from December until  February.

  • Skiing & Snowboarding

    Corviglia, Corvatsch/Furtschellas, and Diavolezza/Lagalb are our three major and well-known ski areas. But the smaller ones are in no way inferior to them. Their charm has already captivated many a skier. It all depends on what you are looking for. We are convinced you will find the right one for you.

  • Winter Hiking & Snowshoeing

    Our wide variety of winter walking routes and snowshoe trails will lead you to the most beautiful snow-covered landscapes of the Engadin and up to magnificent vantage points: high on the mountain slopes, along the wide valley and into unspoilt nature. Our cosy mountain restaurants and refuges will treat you to local delicacies and ensure that your walk takes you to seventh heaven.

  • Snow Kiting

    Invented on Lake Silvaplana, snow kiting is all about skimming the frozen lake on skis and snowboards.  Performing daredevil jumps and swinging around with colourful kites.  It is easy to learn and great fun!

  • Helicopter sightseeing tour

    Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Engadin with a helicopter sightseeing flip. Get ‘up-close and personal’ with the Piz Palü und Piz Bernina peaks.
    Let the sparkling glaciers and shimmering lakes take your breath or shiver as the granite rock of the Bergaglia seems close enough to touch. The choice is yours!

  • Paragliding

    A sensational ride! Feel the adrenalin spike in your body as the experienced pilot takes you off the ledge at 2,486 metres above sea level.
    With awesome views and absolute quietness, glide like a bird over the Engadin lake plateau and breathe it all in…

  • Yoga on Snow

    Healthy is the ‘new black’ so why not try your hand at “Yoga on Snow”?  It is all about a new way of relaxing at specific points on a  ski piste. Performed on the Paradiso piste on Corviglia, there are four allocated fixed points on the mountainside where Yoga on Snow may be practised - either independently or under professional guidance.

    Price available upon request

  • Caviar Tasting

    Fresh Caviar, ice cold Vodka and sparkling Champagne - what better way is there to relax after a sunny day on the ski slopes!
    Enjoy the unique delights of three different kinds of Caviar with blini and toast, accompanied with a glass of champagne and a shot of ice-chilled vodka.
    You can choose any 3 kinds of Glattfelder Caviar and are served 15 g each with blini, toast and crème fraîche. The range includes Osciètre Imperial Golden from China, Baeri Caviar from Italy, Osciètre Gueldenstaedti from Holland and Beluga from China.
    Since 1931 Glattfelder in St. Moritz is synonymous with the best and freshest caviar available.

  • Night Sledging

    Night sledging on illuminated mountains is nothing short of thrilling. Add 6-kilometer of sledge run from Preda to Bergün (the longest floodlit one in Europe) and you have yourself a great recipe for plenty of fun! Toboggans are available for rental at the Preda station, for return in Bergün and the run is 5 km long with a vertical difference of 400 metres.
