Arosa in short

  • One of the classic Swiss ski resorts
  • Very sunny and yet snow is guaranteed
  • Excellent cross-country ski and winter hiking area
  • Lots of facilities for young children

Arosa is a "classic" among the Swiss ski resorts - a good all-rounder. Originally, Arosa consisted of nothing more than two farms until a doctor discovered the healing effects of its clean mountain air. The village soon became popular with snow sports fanatics who still immediately fall in love with the fairytale ski resort of Arosa.

Arosa is part of the Arosa - Lenzerheide ski area which is well organised and suits groups and/or families which include non skiers because it is easy to meet up for lunch in the one of the excellent mountain restaurants. There is enough skiing in the Arosa - Lenzerheide ski area to keep most beginners and intermediates happy for a week, although more advanced skiers will probably not find the slopes challenging enough. Arosa is a perfect ski resort for those who don't necessarily want to ski every day or mixed groups. With hiking, cross-country skiing, ice skating on the frozen lakes and plenty of other activities in and around Arosa, you will find everything you could ask for here!

This alpine skiing paradise has a disproportionate amount of Europe’s biggest glaciers and highest mountain peaks - one could almost call Switzerland the pinnacle of alpine skiing. Best-known for its jetsetters, who flock to the likes of St. Moritz and Zermatt to spend their millions, Switzerland also features its fair share of quaint villages and family-friendly ski resorts. The skiing is exceptional, with everything from wide cruising runs to fantastic off-piste terrain. Together with gourmet-... More ›

Believe it or not, summer is a busy time for many ski resorts. Even when the Alps aren't covered in snow, there is plenty to do: lifts, piste bashers, and snow cannons must all be inspected and fixed where necessary, and preparations must be made for the upcoming ski season. Some ski resorts take advantage of the ski pistes being closed to instal new lifts! Here you'll find a quick overview of the major new lifts that will be inaugurated for the 2019/20 ski season....

There's nothing more heartbreaking than arriving at your long-awaited ski holiday only to find brown hills and a couple of cows grazing! When you've scheduled holiday time, invested money and spent hours researching your ski area and accommodation, the last thing you want is a ski area with unreliable snow cover. The good news is that you don't have to be completely at the mercy of the elements this year. Switzerland is known for its especially high-altitude ski areas and the following ski areas hav... More ›
