Highlights

Offering sophistication and traditional Swiss charm it is the perfect place for those learning to ski with a variety of lovely blue wide cruisey runs to choose from. There is also a good mix of reds and some challenging blacks for the more advanced. Non-skiers won’t be disappointed either with plenty of activities to choose from and some excellent hotel facilities.

Activities and indulgences for You

With flattering pistes and long lunches with like-minded people, Arosa is the perfect place for a ski holiday in Switzerland. Skiing here is a joy and with a range of first-class restaurants on and off the slopes, Arosa is hard to fault. Try the Hörnlihütte at lunchtime for traditional dishes, a big terrace and fantastic views.

Fun for the Kids

Arosa is the perfect place for little ones to learn to ski in our Yeti Primer programme and for older novices our SnoZone Beginners programme is tailored to their needs. Away from the slopes there’s plenty to keep them busy too, and because Arosa is a compact resort, with some hotels enjoying ski-in/ski-out convenience, they are never far from fun on the slopes either on skis or tobogganing.
