Lenzerheide

Switzerland

Enjoy glistening winter days in the high altitude valley of Lenzerheide, a new addition to our Swiss offering last year. Little known in Britain, this resort enjoys double helpings of sun.

Highlights

With both sides of the valley becoming a sun trap at different times of the day, it's perfect for those wanting to get the most out of their day’s skiing. Add to that 225km of perfectly prepared slopes at snow-friendly altitudes and you’ll see why the Swiss are trying to keep Lenzerheide under wraps.

We're not the only ones who love Lenzerheide either!

Ed Leigh, presenter of BBC Ski Sunday, was quoted in the Financial Times' Pink Snow edition in October 2013 as saying:

"I've taken the opportunity to explore some lesser-known resorts. The most recent gem I've found is Lenzerheide in Switzerland. It has terrain to suit every skier and plenty of altitude to ensure fresh snow."

Nick Trend, Ski Editor of the Daily Telegraph, was quoted in the November 2013 edition speaking about the new lift link with Arosa, as saying:

"[It] will transform both resorts, catapulting them into the top 10 Swiss ski areas with a fully linked domain of 42 lifts and 225km of pistes, at an altitude of 1,230-2,865m."

Activities and Indulgences for You

Indulge in some off the slope action in the idyllic countryside of white forests and frozen lakes. This provides a vast ski area for winter sports enthusiasts, whether you enjoy hiking in the snow, cross-country skiing, sledding or simply letting your spirit roam free. A large outdoor ice rink in the centre of the village, excellent mountain restaurants with friendly service and slopes that are quiet even during school holidays make this the perfect holiday hotspot.

Fun for the Kids

Lenzerheide is the perfect place for little ones to learn or improve their skiing in our Yeti programme, and older children and teens will have a wonderful time honing their skills on the slopes in SnoZone. With a very good nursery slope area complete with magic carpets/tow ropes, your little ones are sure to have a ball.

The kids will love the Audi Funslope whilst they're in Lenzerheide! We invite you to watch the video below to find out all about it and see young skiers in action!
