win a break in Switzerland with Conde Nast Traveller c/d 11th Sept.

The prize-winner and a guest will enjoy three nights at Grand Hotel Kronenhof in Pontresina, Switzerland, staying in one of the hotel’s Comfortable rooms, some of which were designed by French interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon (also known for his work at Four Season George V in Paris and The Savoy in London) and have panoramic views over the Engadin valley.
In winter, the prize-winner and their guest can take a spin on the hotel’s ice rink, try their hand at skiing (downhill or cross country) or snowshoe, while in the summer, there’s opportunities for hiking, biking, rock climbing and wild swimming. With its sheltered location at the start of the Bernina Pass, there are blue-sky sunny days year-round.

Back at the hotel, there’s an extensive spa area, with hydrotherapy pool, steam rooms and saunas. Supper every night is included in the prize. Eat off the seasonal changing menu in the hotel’s Grand Restaurant (which dates from 1872) with its elegant baroque cream panelled walls and gold sash curtains, or try Italian or Swiss specialities in one of the restaurants at sister property, Kulm Hotel St. Moritz, just a ten-minute drive away.

Return flights from the UK to Zurich, provided by Swiss International Air Lines, are also included in the prize, as are return train transfers in Switzerland, in partnership with Switzerland Tourism; the three and a half hour journey is an experience in itself, following part of the famous Glacier Express route that uses the UNESCO World Heritage recognised Rhaetian track.
This competition closes on 11 September 2019.
To be in with a chance of winning answer the question below.

Which writer claimed to invent downhill skiing in Switzerland in 1894?
