Arosa Lenzerheide Lets your heart beat faster Since the inauguration of the Urdenbahn from the Arosa Hörnli to the Urdenfürggli in Lenzerheide, Switzerland has a new dream couple. The two ski areas Arosa and Lenzerheide have become a winter paradise with 225 kilometres of snow covered slopes, double the amount of cosy mountain cabins and a record setting number of sunny days. Since January 2014, Arosa Lenzerheide is the biggest connected ski resort of the canton Grisons and stands for action, fun and relaxation. TEXT & PHOTOS: AROSA TOURISMUS

Arosa Lenzerheide offers a versatile guest experience on and off the slopes. Kidslands for the smallest winter sports athletes, snow parks for the adventurous skiers and snowboarders or perfectly prepared blue, red and black pistes for every level. Besides, events like the Arosa Comedy Festival with artists like Carolin Kebekus, SerdarSomuncu and Bodo Wartke or the IceSnowFootball – the unofficial Snow Football World Cup – with international football stars like Ulf Kirsten, Stéphane Chapuisat or Paulo Sergio create very special moments. The new winter sports area Arosa Lenzerheide on 1,230 up to 2,865 metres above sea level, has something to offer for everyone.

Guests who do not have boards under their feet may enjoy the Arosa and Lenzerheide sun on the 140 kilometres of winter-hiking trails, turn some rounds on the open-air ice rink with a view on the beautiful mountain panorama or rush down the slopes back to the village by sledge to finally relax in one of the numerous SPA’s and wellness retreats – the Tschuggen mountain oasis, created by star architect Mario Botta, offers a surface of 5,000 square metres to indulge yourself. No matter if you ski, snowboard or walk – the perfect end of a winter sports day is on a sun terrace in one of our cosy mountain cabins with an Arosa ‘Munggapfupf’ or a

Grisons ‘Röteli’ in your hand. The best après-ski parties take place in the famous and notorious Tschuggen Hut. Arosa Lenzerheide offers pure joy for small and big guests. The kids-lands and the ‘ski school inclusive’ package allow parents to spend a relaxed day on the sunny slopes. Kids born in and until 1998 benefit from free ski and snowboard lessons when staying at least two nights in one of the participat-ing hotels or holiday apartments in Arosa. The ‘ski school inclusive’ offer is a success story since Winter 2012/13 and brings young people back on the slopes!
