An intimate, secluded resort located some two hours south of Zurich at the end of the Schanfigg valley in the Graubünden mountains, Arosa is a classic Swiss mountain town in all aspects, surrounded by high peaks, rolling farmland, and boasting a ski history that dates back to the 1930's.
The mountain itself is serviced by 16 lifts that give access to 100km of piste and a 900m vertical drop. With terrain that showcases a somewhat more mellow character than many other Swiss resorts, Arosa is an ideal family and freestyle-oriented resort, with the terrain parks and a halfpipe to prove it.
2015/16 will be the third consecutive season in which the Audi ski cross World Cup tour stops for competition in Arosa.
