Canton Graubünden is one of my favorite cantons, and I go there whenever possible. It was easy to decide to go there for the weekend when looking for a place to go cross-country skiing. Not only are there many options there, it is also utterly beautiful. This time we stayed at the Swiss Historic Hotel in Zuoz. It was built in 1500 and is one of the oldest hotels in Switzerland.
We arrived at night as it snowed and the next morning we were told that it snowed over 70 cm, and it continued to snow the entire morning. We didn’t let that deter us and strapped on our cross-country skis. But skiing in snow and wind isn’t really very pleasant, and the snow stuck to our skis and made skiing nearly impossible.
The good thing about being out while it snowed was that no one else was on the trail and it is wonderful to be able so ski on your own.
Zuoz is also a worth stopping at and walking around as there are plenty of pretty buildings in the village to look at.
