Exploring the Arosa Lenzerheide ski area
Our trump card – many hours of sunshine
Arosa Lenzerheide offers the right pistes and runs for all tastes and all abilities. For children who want to discover how to make their first magical turns on skis, there are separate areas where they can learn the skiing basics. Beginning mid-February, early risers can ride up the mountain as early as 6:30 in the morning, then slice down the piste at sunrise. Night skiing is also possible every Friday evening thanks to „Snow Nights“.
If you want to reach for even greater heights, we suggest hopping a lift to the top of the Rothorn. With an elevation of 2865 meters, the entire valley lies at your feet. At that point, the decision is yours to make – with the numerous blue-, red- and black-rated pistes of the ski area to choose from. For ambitious winter athletes, we recommend the World Cup hill „Silvano Beltrametti“, which combines exhilarating sections with impressive panoramas. Every bit as impressive: the „Black Diamond Slope“, an enthralling ride with steep passages and ultrahigh speeds.
Fans of kickers, rails and jibs also find what they have been craving in the Arosa Lenzerheide ski area. The region’s snowpark boasts all kinds of obstacles and jumps sure to appeal to every true-blue freestyler. The setup is adapted several times a season to give the course a fresh new vibe.

The two mountains close to Lenzerheide offering the greatest potential for freeriders are the Scalottas and the Parpaner Rothorn. Scalottas is ideal for laid-back downhill runs. Alternating between forests and broad open spaces, an exciting ride through the deep snow is guaranteed.
The Parpaner Rothorn greets you with challenging conditions, which is precisely what makes it so appealing and irresistible to freeriders. Despite huge amounts of “the white stuff”, rocks still protrude from the snow, creating a kind of corridor that marks the way. At the same time, those same challenging passages then transition into broad slopes where you are free to choose your lines however you please.
The Rothorn, too, features numerous ungroomed, and even untouched sections inviting you to embark on a freeriding expedition that leads you all the way back down to the valley in Lenzerheide. No matter what you eventually decide to do: In Arosa Lenzerheide, you can really let loose away from the pistes. However, always check the avalanche status reports for the region closely and respect the wildlife protection areas.
