Winter in Arosa
Arosa is a traditional Swiss winter sports resort with above-average snow quality and long hours of sunshine.
It is located at an altitude of 1,800 meters in a mountainous bowl at the end of the stunning Schanfigg Valley surrounded by wildlife, forests, rivers, lakes and mountains.
At an altitude of 1,800 meters, Arosa surrounds a spacious, snow-sure, sunny bowl, which has no through traffic.
With fast lifts that serve the huge Arosa bowl, mainly blue and red slopes spread out over three peaks: Hörnli, Weisshorn and Bruggerhorn.
These modern lifts lead to skiing off-piste as well as on the slopes. Experts can enjoy skiing on the Weisshorn and on the Bruggerhorn or make a selection of tours in the seclusion of the altitude. Avalanche hazards must be understood and managed at all times.
The slopes are wide and sunny, and the Hörnli gondola lift in Arosa is now connected to the Urdenfürggli in Lenzerheide at 2,600 meters, with the environmental impact of the valley limited to 225 km.
