SAINT MORITZ - SKI RESORT

Saint Moritz is a ski resort town in a small valley tucked between the Swiss Alps. It is one of the oldest and most famous winter resorts in the world because of its favorable location near a lake and mountains. Skiing and snowboarding is popular in the winter along the tall mountains right outside the old city center.

Saint Moritz's old center with quaint timberframe homes and shops. Looks like the road plowers need to be called soon!

Is it me or the ski lifts on the fifth pics seem to be "floating", as building and shadows don't begin on the same place? Anyways, another excellent update!

Thanks guys, glad you liked it! I noticed the shadows on the ski lift pic too, turns out I needed to have a steeper slope. I fixed it now, so the shadows should look a little better now.
