We learned something new today that explains why this town feels like nothing is happening.
It turns out that the rest of Europe goes on vacation during August, but St. Moritz shuts down on May 1st for a month. We are here during the “in between season” when it is too warm for skiing, and too cold for serious hiking and other outdoor Summer activities.
Today was the last day of operation for all of the major ski areas surrounding town, and most of the shops, hotels, and bars shut down this past week. Great timing on our part!!
I guess they didn’t want our money!
