Arosa Lenzerheide - the winter sports paradiseSince the opening of the Urdenbahn in January 2014, the snow-sports region Arosa and Lenzerheide have been linked. The result is a snow sports paradise with 225 km snow-reliable and groomed slopes up to 2,865 metres above sea level, numerous rustic mountain huts and record-breaking sunny days.
Couloirs covered in deep snow and steep slopes interspersed by ledges, await professional and experienced freeriders. The Parpan Rothorn and the Arosa Weisshorn are among the most well-known freeride mountains of the region. Thereby the freeride descents in Arosa Lenzerheide offer a feeling of freedom in the middle of the winter sports resort. A further impressive experience to ride in the untouched winter landscape provides also the Skisafari between Arosa, Lenzerheide and Tschiertschen. On the ski safari you are off-piste, therefore don't miss out on the professional direction of a guide from the snow sports schools.
Bregaglia – the untouched natureWho isn’t looking for a place far away from the crowds especially this winter? The Bergell with its popular skiing area Aela presents itself small but nice. Here freeriders and families get their money's worth. All around the skiing area there are varied cross-country trails and winter hiking paths. Therefore, also the lovers of endurance sports can find what they need. By the end of January, the Silsersee is frozen and invites you to an excursion which is particularly worthwhile, be it on cross-country skis or on foot. From this winter on there are 3 new marked snowshoe trails around Maloja. In addition there are numerous others snowshoe and touring ski routes in the whole Bergell.
For those who like it even more lonesome, ice climbing around the Albigna dam is highly recommended, which is best to do it with a local mountain guide.
