Overview of Arosa Ski Resort
Arosa ski resort is one of the classic Swiss centres, where the local ski club was established as long ago as 1903.
The resort is located in the heart of Switzerland’s most south easterly canton of Graubunden, which borders Italy and has a definite southern European vibe to it. The village lies between the resort of Lenzerheide – to which there are long term plans to create a ski lift and piste connection – and Davos. Like another neighbour, St Moritz, however, Arosa is one of Europe’s highest traditional ski villages, with the slopes going higher still, providing one of the most snow-sure destinations in the Alps.
Arosa itself is spread out, and it is worth checking the location of your accommodation before booking although, as the slopes can be accessed from multiple points and an efficient bus service links it all together, this is rarely a problem. As with many Swiss resorts, there’s an architectural mix of many pretty, traditional chalet buildings, particularly in Inner Arosa, and some less appealing concrete rectangular constructions.
The resort is proud of its strong local culture and heritage and makes great efforts to provide not only a high quality holiday experience with most of the accommodation offered to the highest standard, but also one where every practicality and detail has been thought out. There are a range of hotels in Arosa, from the five star Kulm to the three star Sorell Hotel Asora. Arosa is also proud of its environmental credentials and makes strong efforts there too.
