Unfortunately, I have never had the pleasure of visiting Switzerland but it is on my travel bucket list for 2016. In the meantime I have been enjoying various travel blog posts on it and of course...the thousands of photos over on Pinterest. Today I am sharing some information with all of you who may be planning a trip. This info is courtesy of the Carlton Hotel.

During the 2014/2015 winter season, the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz will be celebrating 150 years of winter tourism in the Engadin Valley of Switzerland. Located in the birthplace of winter tourism, the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz is offering experiences reminiscent of “the bet” that established this international winter hotspot 150 years ago.

The original bet in St. Moritz involved a confident hotelier and four skeptic English guests who did not believe the Engadin winter sunshine could be enjoyed short-sleeved on a terrace – the hotelier undoubtedly won the bet as the four sceptics stayed in St. Moritz from Christmas to Easter 150 years ago. “The Bet” experience offered at the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz allows guests to follow in the footsteps of these pioneers.
