Why Arosa?

Arosa, in canton Graubunden, lies in a beautifully sunny, yet snow sure bowl at the end of the Schanfigg Valley. The panoramic 360 degree views of the dramatic Alps are really something.

The traditional and beautiful resort is perfect for beginners and intermediates with a good range of blues and reds to get stuck into. Arosa is also excellent for families and very child friendly with an excellent ski school, nursery slopes and snow playgrounds.

There is a range of accommodation, from the luxurious Tschuggen Grand with its superb spa designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta to cosy family bed and breakfast hotels.

Arosa has the benefit of a train station so you can hop on the train at Zurich airport, sit back, enjoy the scenery and arrive in resort 3 hours later. We recommend this over driving as, although the route is beautiful, the road up the Schanfigg valley is narrow and winding. The train is a far more relaxing way to arrive.
