Arosa


Arosa ski area is especially well suited for beginners and intermediates, and families and mixed ability groups seeking a traditional Swiss winter holiday.

The ski area is easily accessed from the centre of Arosa, either by 125 passenger cable car or the adjacent 3-man chairlift which whisk you up to the Tschuggen ski area (shaded pink on the map and the main beginner ski area), by drag lift to Tschuggen from Prätschli or better still you can hop on the free Hőrnliexpress-Weisshornbahn bus which runs between Arosa (cable car) and the Hőrnliexpress gondola above Inner-Arosa.

Good skiers can blitz the whole ski area on piste in 1-2 days but beyond the mostly easy and enjoyable on-piste there are plenty of off-piste possibilities to be enjoyed with a guide including day tours to Davos and other nearby ski areas.

There’s over 25km of cross-country ski trails and a 60km network of on-mountain hiking trails and winter walking in Arosa is a main stream
activity.

Interestingly all mountain restaurants including three summit restaurants can be reached by walkers without once having to access the lift system.

Centre stage for boarders and freestylers is Arosa’s massive half-pipe next to the Tomeli draglift on Tschuggen. If you’re inexperienced at pipe riding and unable to ride the high side walls with confidence its intimidating sight, but for advanced terrain park riders it looks a lot of fun, and challenging.

Experienced boarders will relish easy access to the off-piste pitches between marked runs and for the same reason, conditions permitting Arosa is a good place for intermediate riders to learn the art of riding deep snow, but at the other end of the spectrum its fair to say that Arosa is not an ideal place for novices to learn to board. There’s no shortage of tuition, but the drag lifts serving the beginner runs on the Tschuggen are less easily ridden by novice boarders.
