Naples Daily News St. Moritz, the 150 year old synonym for excess with a side of skiing, boasts that it gets 322 days of sun a year. The reason, locals are happy to explain, is a peculiar mix of altitude and mountain alignment in the Engadin Valley of Switzerland. But after a week in town it s easy to wonder if those who frequent this rarefied strip of property haven t simply ordered up the sun, like a piece of perfectly seared tuna served at one of the high franc mid mountain restaurants overlooking the valley below. Perhaps it will occur to you when you stroll down Via Serlas " past Chanel, Gucci, Bulgari, Chopard and Pucci " watching would be shoppers descend from picturesque horse drawn carriages and peel bills from rolls the size of baseballs to tip groomsmen. Or when you hit the clubs at night, passing smoky entryways and descending into the gloom of neon lit, Madonna soundtracked dance halls. Surely by the time you make it to one of the annual events on the frozen lake " 3 feet of ice that supports Moncler Kids Down Jackets Brown Clothing Even The Scarf the weight of trucks, tents, horses, cricket matches and the most celebrated chefs of Switzerland " you will realize: St. Moritz is an opportunity for pure cultural anthropology, a safari to a land of 300 Swiss franc lunches and free flowing Cristal. Lesser known nobles and minor Italian princesses crowd the society pages here " supermodels, business tycoons, former heads of state and film stars are close seconds. And yet, despite the scent of exclusivity, here, perhaps more than any other spot frequented by the rich, the very rich, the royals and those who want to marry a royal, you are free to mingle with those who are accustomed to this lifestyle. You can attend their events, eat in their restaurants, walk among them, wear their clothes, sleep Moncler Miami on the same luscious sheets. For a small fee, of course, and not just money, that s obvious, but discretion and a not insignificant dash of insouciance. "In St. Moritz we never talk about our customers," says Ursula Kahn, the manager of Les Ambassadeurs, a luxury emporium that offers jewelry from Graff and watches by Cartier, as she blows a plume of smoke over her Bottega Veneta bag. "It s like the secrets of our Swiss banks." The first step, as always, is to dress the part. Blend. St. Moritz winter style, even in a winter that begins as snowlessly as this one, can be summed up in one word: Fur. St. Moritz is the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals anti campaign. "I d rather go naked than not wear fur" could replace "Top of the World," as the St. Moritz motto. Sable, lynx, chinchilla, mink, fox, raccoon. Chubbies. Full length. Vests. Cuffs. Boots. Hats. Muffs. The boldest wear a combination of all of the above. Men, women, children all bundled alike. You will be forgiven for thinking that you can rent the furs at the local airport where some 19,000, mostly private, jets land each year, or at the train station, where men in uniforms that harken to another era wait to whisk you to the Suvretta House or the Kulm Hotel in stretch Mercedeses that recall taxis in oil rich desert countries. Walk into Badrutt s Palace " the five star hotel named for the mid 19th century founder of St. Moritz tourism " in that luscious ski resort time frame known as "aprhs ski," especially during the annual Gourmet Festival s chocolate or caviar tastings, and you ll see the furs strewn haphazardly, casually, across the backs of velvet divans or nestled like pets beside their owners, bags from La Perla at the owners feet. Furless, in your 10 year old EMS jacket, you re an obvious outsider. Your Chanel, Dolce Gabbana or Gucci sunglasses " preferably this season s please, with a large label or signifier on the sidepiece " are insufficient. There are those who say the fabulousness quotient is much lower than it was a half century ago. "The fur you see now," says Gaby Stein, a Belgian boutique owner with the rows of diamonds ringing her neck reminiscent of those a best actress contender might borrow for the Oscars. "That s nothing. You used to bring three fur coats to change off. The furs would be tossed aside on the floor of the King s Club." St. Moritz may have changed, but the King s Club, owned by Badrutt s Palace, is still known as a celebrity haunt. Claudia Schiffer, Liz Hurley, Kate Moss, Robert De Niro, et al., are the regulars. dollar) for the privilege of Moncler Vest Womens Down Hooded Zip Purple imbibing two beverages. The King s Club is your opportunity to rub shoulders with those who own Engadin Valley "holiday apartments" like Umberto and Paolo, 25 year old Italians crashing at Umberto s family holiday home in the nearby town of Samedan, who throw down close to $1,000 in rounds of drinks for women and themselves. But after already having hopped from the Hotel Schweizerhof s Piano Bar (older men with much younger women on their arms singing along to Gloria Gaynor in a tiny pine paneled room) to Vivai (19 to 21 year olds who come to St. Moritz to "work the season") and on to the wallet draining excess of the King s Club, you may well opt instead for a taxi back to your hotel. The scene loses its luster, shall we say, in the wee hours of the morning. Like St. Moritz itself, sighs Gaby Stein. "Now I just bring one fur and one casual coat," she says, underscoring that the heyday of St. Moritz has passed. "And I might as well not bother. The wealthy are different now." The wealthy have been coming to St. Moritz for 150 years. In the mid 19th century, the entrepreneurial hotelier Johannes Badrutt (of the family that founded both the Kulm and Badrutt s Palace) bet a handful of English friends that spending a winter in this Swiss valley " so isolated it has its own language, Romansh " was not only possible, it was more enjoyable than the glorious summer. He said he d pay their expenses if they balked. The Brits took him up on his offer and ended up staying until Easter. The area soon became known for a host of winter sports, from ice skating and curling to tobogganing and bobsledding: The Cresta Run zips from St. Moritz to the nearby town of Celerina and is still in active use with membership in the private, male only St. Moritz Tobogganing Club. In 1928 the town, by then well known for its exclusivity and its appeal to European royalty, was host of the Winter Olympics, an honor it received again 20 years later. In the 1950s and 60s St. Moritz was the winter playground for those who vacationed in the most exclusive places in the world. Alfred Hitchcock honeymooned here. Marcel and Gaby Stein, Antwerp natives (he s in diamonds), began visiting St. Moritz at its apex, in the 1960s as 20 somethings. Later they brought their three boys, now grown, and would set up camp "for two weeks, three weeks," she said. "For skiing." For years they stayed at the Hotel Edelweiss, a kosher hotel that was the gathering place for observant Jews from all over Europe who each would come with what Gaby Stein said was a "massive suitcase" filled with clothing to wear at the King s Club. Now the Steins stay about a mile from the center of town at the stately Suvretta House, site of Nijinsky s last performance, a former playground of the Shah of Iran and Eva Peron, for an annual 10 day respite. Marcel swims daily in the Suvretta House pool, with its slate indoor landscaping and outdoor whirlpool, just downstairs from a complex of steam and sauna rooms. Gaby takes aggressive Nordic walks. They no longer ski. The Steins are not alone in their no ski policy. Skiing is incidental to St. Moritz. (Fabrizio D Aloisio, a press representative for the village, estimates that nonskiers make up "55 to 60 percent" of winter visitors.) To be sure, at St. Moritz s most rarefied hotels, the level of luxury practically begs patrons not to ski, despite ski schools exclusively for patrons " the Suvretta House s instructors are visible on the mountain because they wear only Prada " and easy access to the slopes. But the ski school competes with the spa, the private instruction at the private skating rink, the small but accessible gym, the bus that whisks guests into town for shopping, not to mention the leisurely long breakfast in the "informal" dining room, with fresh breads in every shade and platter after platter of fruits, cheeses, jams, meats, cereals and much more. By the time you ve made it half way around the buffet " pausing to wonder, is that Gerhard Schroeder in the corner? " you might as well give up and buy the half day ski pass.
