St. Moritz residents go to great distances to achieve greatness and make their snowy village standout from the rest of the ski world. Little else would explain why someone would crane a vintage 60-foot yacht up to the top of Corviglia. But if you've been to chef Reto Mathis' acclaimed La Marmite you need no explanation, the meticulous chef has succeeded in creating a world-class oasis literally at the top of the world â€" or at least St. Moritz. Perched on one of the mountain's most impressive vertical drops, the wooden sailing yacht is now a member's club and champagne bar for famished skiers looking for caviar snacks and frozen flutes of Verve Clicquot Ponsardin.
Arrive late in the afternoon for prime people watching or try to snag a table through La Marmite to enjoy the food and the scenery.
St. Moritz champagne and vodka bar serves-up world-class views and one of the poshest skiing crowds in the world, now complete with a one-ship yacht club afloat in icy bubbly.
