Arosa Skiing & Snowboarding

Set in a south east facing bowl dominated by the Weisshorn (2653m - the highest point at Arosa), Plattenhorn and Hörnli, Arosa is an intermediate skier & snowboarder nirvana. 

Beginners have a range of suitabel lifts & trails around the base areas of the resort and up to Tschuggen. Advanced riders have steep otpions on & off piste from the top of Weisshorn, but the better decision is to head to Lenzerheide via the Urdenbahn.

The ski lifts at Arosa are modern with the one exception being an old 2er chairlift serving the resort's best off piste terrain on the Brüggerhorn. The Brueggerhorn chair is being replaced with a high speed 6 seater from season 2018/19, bringing all of Arosa's lifts into the 21st century!
