Book a wonderful ski holiday to Swiss Arosa and enjoy endless days of sunshine! The ski resort is south facing and at an elevation of 1,450 meters above sea level. There are 55 well-prepared pistes of various difficulty levels here. Best of all, there is now a cable car running between Arosa and popular ski resort Lenzerheide (with several north facing runs). More bang for your buck! For those who enjoy evening skiing, this place does not disappoint. Arosa has Switzerland’s longest lit ski run. There are also really cool fun parks and very challenging off-piste skiing.

The highest vertical drop is 1,528 meters and the highest ski area sits at 2,865 meters. Most people love Arosa for having such an extensive ski system that there is something new to discover every day of a week-long ski holiday. Having said that, the ski resort still feels quite small and compact and it is easy to get around the mountain. The village is just the right size, with everything you need in terms of restaurants, great accommodation and after ski.
