Re: Driving from Zurich to St Moritz

The easiest way to drive is Zürich to Chur --> Thusis --> St. Moritz.
If you do need chains, you'll need them for the Julierpass and maybe more of the road, depending on the snow level.

It does seem like snow is expected during the next couple of days, so you might need to put chains on... as people said - on your front wheels.

A couple of things to keep in mind:
- You need your tire size to buy the chains - they aren't a 'one size fits all' thing. Just google 'how to find your tire size' and they'll be plenty of guides.
- Putting on chains is really not difficult, but it is difficult to do on the side of a mountain road in the snow while drivers pass very close by. If you have a chance, practice once or twice before you drive off.

Just a thought... did you consider taking the train to St. Moritz? It isn't so quick, but might be much more relaxing that a mountain drive to someplace you've never been in the dark?

Enjoy your trip... the upper engadine valley is beautiful.

Another thought... St. Moritz itself is not a particularily pretty town, but the nearby towns.. moloja, celerina and many others are very cute.
