Richard Cowell of Palm Beach is probably the club’s most famous American life member and God knows how many ski trails that dashing chap has run. His wife, Tana, and her sister, Princess Milana Furstenberg, who know how to organize a party if anyone does, are running the main event on Saturday evening, assisted by such lovelies of international society as Lita Livanos (Greek shipping), Caroline Mavroleon (Greek shipping) and Princess Chantal of Hanover (Prince Ernst August of Hanover’s first wife before Princess Caroline of Monaco came into the picture).
That Bavarian dinner will take place at the Chesa Veglia, a nightspot that has been the meeting place of St. Moritz’s most stunning snowbirds since forever, hosted by Count Riprand Arco and Countess Marie-Beatrice Arco. It’s informal, of course, because who has had a chance to even unpack yet? The next night’s dinner at the Dracula Club, also a popular hangout, will be given by Maryam and Rolf Sachs. Blazers, please, and don’t forget your club tie.
The main event on Saturday begins with a fun ski race in the morning and ends with a gala dinner and dance, where black tie and diamonds are de rigueur. Before everyone leaves on Sunday, they’ll dress for a brunch at the pool of the palace given by Hansjurg Badrutt. If you know anything, you know that Badrutt and the palace are absolutely synonymous.
