Best tips for Arosa Lenzerheide
A classic all-round winter resort, near Chur. High and remote, in a sheltered basin at the head of a beautiful wooded valley and lovely train ride up. The centre is not particularly pretty, with block-like buildings, though its lakeside setting adds charm. It is a quiet family place, with a lot of non-skiers. A hill separates this area from the older, prettier chalet-style Inner-Arosa up the valley. Lodging spreads widely, but there is an excellent free shuttle-bus. The local slopes cover two main sectors mostly above the treeline; mainly enjoyable, undemanding cruises. Beginners have easy slopes at mid-mountain, but they can get crowded, though queues are rare. In 2013/14 Arosa’s slopes were linked with Lenzerheide’s by a new 150-person cable car and two new six-packs to form an area of 225km with slopes to suit all abilities, including excellent off-piste. There are two 5-star hotels: the Tschuggen Grand is ultra-modern with a spectacular award-winning spa and its own private train up the slopes; the Kulm is more conventional, very comfortable with a stylish spa. Arosa is in a high, remote, wooded valley reached from Chur by a long, winding drive or a lovely scenic rail journey. The village spreads for 2km along the road from the lake below the lower lift base at Obersee by the railway station towards the slightly separate, rustic satellite of Inner-Arosa. The resort attracts a loyal clientele, mostly Swiss and German, with a lot of non-skiers and families (maybe three generations holidaying together).
- Fair-sized, largely intermediate ski area with good off-piste too
- Good nursery slopes
- Lots of cross-country loops and walking paths
- Relatively good snow reliability
- Block-like buildings in main village
- Spread-out village with no real focus or attractive shops
- Slopes on Arosa side are relatively short and lack variety
- Few challenging pistes for experts
