Arosa is not well known in the UK, but this is where the Swiss go to ski. It is an upmarket, charming and lively town with a relatively small but very pretty ski area.
As a ski resort it is ideal for beginners and intermediate skiers with 80 km of well linked and nicely groomed pistes. Advanced skiers will find their fun off-piste, which can remain untracked for days after a snowfall, and where there are some good one day ski tours to other resorts such as Klosters and Davos. There is also some spectacular cross-country skiing. This resort is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy the authentic Swiss Alpine experience.
Pubs, cafés and clubs in Arosa
There are some lively bars and a couple of good night clubs in town, where the younger Swiss holiday makers meet the local ski instructors. Generally people speak good English and this is a great resort to come to if you want to get to know the locals rather than be just another holiday rep.
