The western part of the Lenzerheide-Valbella ski area is accessible by ski lift from Churwalden. The ski area is divided up into two parts, an eastern and a western part. By means of a tunnel, the areas are connected to each other depending on weather conditions. If the tunnel is closed, there is the ski bus service instead. You may not even need to pass through the tunnel as the western ski area offers 100 kilometers of slopes alone! The area is versatile, both for families and advanced skiers, not forgetting cross-country skiers too as there are 52 kilometer of tracks that are prepared daily.

The Pradaschier toboggan run that ends in Churwalden is in the Guinness Book of Records recorded as the longest toboggan run (on tracks) in Europe. The run is more than 3 kilometers long and has 31 turns. The altitude drop of 480 meters guarantees a great kick. Once a week it is even possible to ride in the evening! The track is not dependent on the weather so you can enjoy the ride in season! Once down in Churwalden, the chairlift transports you back within six minutes and you can start the toboggan run all over again!

Churwalden is also known for the Bündnerfleisch that is produced here. This is a typical Swiss meat that is produced only in Grisons which is a special kind of dried meat which has a very distinctive, salty taste.
