Arosa

Overview

A quite limited ski area although it would be enough for someone wanting a weekend skiing break. The beginner and early intermediate type of terrain would not suit everyone but the resort does have the feel of a proper old fashioned Swiss ski resort with horse drawn sleigh rides and a really interesting 26 km cross country course.
 

Positive

  • Reliable snow
  • Quiet and without queues
  • Good for beginners
  • Great as a weekend destination

Negative

  • Not for big mileage skiers
  • Not for experts
  • Not a very pretty village

Offslope/apres ski

With many cleared walks and a pedestrian lift pass enabling non skiers to get up the mountain Arosa offers more than a lot of high mountain resorts. Apres ski is also really quite lively.
