    A new, free area for children (Honigland) opened.

    Summary

    Arosa’s attraction for keen skiers was transformed in 2014 by new lifts linking it to neighbouring Lenzerheide. This more than trebled the size of its ski area to a very respectable 225km, on a par with Ischgl and Serre-Chevalier. The resort is isolated at the head of a long, winding valley and is set by a frozen lake which hosts winter horse races and a golf tournament. Winter walking and cross-country skiing are big here as well as downhill. If this sounds like a classic all-round winter resort, it is – it’s just a shame that most of the buildings in the main part of town are block-like and concrete rather than cute wooden chalets.
