The picturesque Swiss resort of St. Moritz is famous for the beauty of its ski slopes and the adrenalin rush at the Cresta Run. But for sheer quirkiness, few sport events can beat the cricket festival on the ice and snow on the frozen lake.
This testimony to the sports’ eccentricity began to take shape in 1988, when a group of intrepid British cricketers challenged the students of the international boarding school Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz to a match. Ever since, it has become an integral part of the official cricket calendar, attracting international players and high-flying business people from all over the world.
