Bringing igloo villages to the Alps

sdf

Igloo villages are a big tourist attraction.

Iglu Villages have opened for the winter at seven Alpine locations, each requiring 3000 tonnes of snow to provide their storm-proof lodging.

In addition to Gstaad, Davos-Klosters, Zermatt, Engelberg, the Zugspitze and Grandvalira in Andorra, an Igloo Village will also be offered for the first time in St. Moritz.

The new St. Moritz igloo village has been created at a stunning location next to the top station Muottas Muragl, offering a view over the Upper Engadine lakes.
