The Arosa/Lenzerheide ski area, the majority of which is above the tree line, is accessible by cable-car or chairlift from the village, and the brand new link to the neighbouring resort of Lenzerheide means over 225km of pistes are now included on one pass. Arosa offers a quintessentially Swiss holiday, accessed by rail on the efficient Swiss rail system, the ride up is impressive and you are greeted with a pretty chocolate box village, high in the mountains with the frozen lake and snow covered streets lined with quaint cafes and good window shopping. The streets are kept grit free so you will often see people skiing through the village! All giving Arosa a unique and unforgettable resort atmosphere.
