In addition to weather St. Moritz is famous for its attractions, especially in winter, when the lake freezes over. On its ice are held competitions in such sport as cricket, polo and skijoring (horse racing), as well as the world's only ice golf championship, where are used red balls. And, of course, magnificently equipped ski trails (total length is 350 km) annually attract thousands of skiers to St Moritz.
