Arosa - Information

Resort Information  Arosa

Arosa has been a well-known and extremely popular alpine health resort for more than 100 years. On average, the sun shines eight to twelve hours a day and, due to the northerly location, there is always plenty of snow. Arosa occupies the broad sunny bowl of the Schanfigg, surrounded on all sides by snowy peaks – the Weisshorn (2653m) is the main focus due west of the resort, along with the Hörnli (2512m) to the south and the Brüggerhorn (2401m) to the north. The town itself consists of two areas: the main resort is Ausserarosa, clustered around the train station and the Obersee lakelet; while the older village at the upper end of the valley is dubbed Innerarosa. Arosa’s skiing is excellent, with over 70km of mostly blue and red pistes sidewinding down the gentle sunny slopes around the resort; beginners will feel especially at home. There’s also 25km of cross-country pistes in and around the resort. Lifts and a gondola rise from the Obersee to the Weisshorn (with a chairlift from halfway up branching over to the Brüggerhorn), and at the very end of the road in Innerarosa there’s another gondola connecting to the Hörnli.There are 2 main skiing sectors- the Weisshorn and the Hornli, with the former being sunnier than the shadier Hornli. Experts may find the obvious lack of pletiful blacks annoying, but there is lots of off-pist terrain, whilst the Bruggerhorn has been dedicated as a ''Free-ride mountain''. Intermediates meanwhile will enjoy the Hornli and the steeper Weisshorn runs reds, whilst some great views are afforded by the Obersee-Bruggerhorn Blue. Finally Beginners will enjoy the easy slopes at Tschuggen, whilst children will be best suited to the quiter Inner-Arosa area. For cross-country skiing, the 26km on offer includes some of the best and most varied in the Alps.
