Located in a sunny valley in the heart of Graubünden, the compact village of Arosa has long been a favourite with our clients who flock here for the high-quality hotels, gentle skiing and traditional ambience. Thanks to the fast and efficient link to neighbouring Lenzerheide, there is plenty of piste to keep even the most committed skier entertained.
Join us in Arosa and you’ll enjoy dedicated in-resort service from our Powder Byrne team, our award-winning children’s ski programmes as well as complimentary ski guiding, Learn to Ski in Style programme for adult beginners and Mountain Host programme for non-skiers
There are 42 lifts available to explore the extensive Arosa-Lenzerheide winter sports region. 225km of pistes on three valley sides leaves nothing to be desired with challenging black slopes, varied red slopes and relaxed blue slopes. All skiers and snowboarders can find a descent that’s right for them. Arosa has plenty of wide slopes and lovely long cruising blues for those that like to take things easy along with multiple children’s ski areas. For the more advanced, there is a good number of red and black runs. If you want an easy run then the ‘Grosse Maran’ is the perfect run for you. On the other hand, if you want to get your adrenaline pumping with a steep piste and lots of speed then we recommend the ‘Carmenna Chair to the ‘Carmenna Hut’ run.

Our on-piste ski guiding is perfect for competent blue run and more experienced skiers and offers our clients a sociable and relaxed way to enjoy the mountain. Our Ski Managers are all great skiers who know the terrain and how to ensure you get the most out of your skiing. They’ll show you around the ski area, advise you on the best runs, avoid annoying bottlenecks, and of course, secure the best tables for lunch.
It’s never too late to learn to ski when everything is taken care of in our Learn to Ski in Style programme for adults. We combine personalised instruction with long lunches in some of the most charming mountain restaurants. We’ll take you through everything step by step to pass on all our knowledge: from equipment to clothing, to how to walk in ski boots. We’ll even carry your skis.
Skiing isn’t for everyone, but that’s not to say there isn’t still plenty to do in the beautiful village of Arosa. Our Powder Byrne mountain hosts will show you another side to the mountains with sleigh rides, snowshoeing, sledging and scenic mountain walks, just to name a few activities on offer. Whether you’re a non-skier or simply just taking a day out, there’s always plenty to do with our Mountain Hosts.
