Scary lift? Believe or not, one of the scariest lifts I ever took was at St. Moritz. The poma lift was located on the Corvatsch side of the resort--steeper, north facing slopes than the more famous and mild-mannered Pontresina side (the glitz and glammer side of the resorrt). To skier's left side of the Corvatsch area are slopes served mainly by Poma lifts. One of the these lifts pulled skiers across a steep, icey ridge with a huge drop on the right-hand side of the T-bar. Falling off that T-bar could result in serious injury, maybe death. http://www.bergbahnenengadin.ch/images/shared/021/maps/corv2_wi_4.jpg
St. Moritz gets a bad wrap as being a place for the spoiled and the rich but there's actually some awesome skiiing there, not just at the Corvatsch area, but at Diavolezza/Lagalb as well.
