Our handpicked Lenzerheide hotel
Switzerland’s sunny skiing region: Arosa Lenzerheide
This idyllic winter sports region now covers three valley sides from Arosa to Lenzerheide and offers unrivalled opportunities for enjoying the pistes. The centrepiece is the Urdenbahn cable car which runs between the Hörnli at 2,494 m above sea level and the Urdenfürggli at 2,546 m. The ride high above the Urden Valley takes 3 minutes and the cable car has a capacity of 150 people.
Lenzerheide's local slopes offer a wealth of varied skiing well supported by the free local ski bus which ensures efficient movement between the areas. A third of the skiing has the benefit of additional artificial snow keeping the area well covered into the middle of April when the lifts finally close. The attractive lower pistes below the mid-stations are wide runs through wooded areas, where the skiing is excellent. There are great off piste and freeride areas along with an impressive range of cross country skiing. The main areas rise up from both sides of Lenzerheide, where the west side up to Piz Scalottas at 2,323m has the benefit of the morning sun whilst the east slopes up to 2,865m at the Rothorn have the afternoon sun.
It is possible to ski clockwise right around Lenzerheide and Valbella starting from the lift at Val Sporz and finishing back at the PostBus station in Lenzerheide. In no time at all 40 modern transport facilities smooth your way around a wide variety of downhill runs, sunny panoramic terraces and alpine restaurants.
There are two new lifts: an 8 seater gondola for Churwalden and a 4 seater chairlift for Obertor. The Rothorn aerial tramway has also been refurbished.

Winter walking The high valley is stunning with its white peaks and clear blue skies. With a total of over 80km of prepared hiking trails, you can explore the beautiful Graubünden countryside. Please click here for a winter walking map.
Cross country skiing Lenzerheide has 56km of tracks which take you through the high valley area and are freshly prepared every day. There is a circular track in Lenzerheide which is floodlit for romantic evening walks.
Biathlon Lenzerheide has Switzerland's only permanent shooting facility, making this resort the perfect place for biathlon enthusiasts.
Toboggan The 4 tobogganing runs here are very popular. You can try sledging at night - combine it with a walk, have fun speeding downhill from Scharmoin or follow up with a leisurely evening meal.
Bob run The bob run winds round 31 bends and descends over 3,100 metres to the valley station in Churwalden. The ride begins at the mountain restaurant and takes around 7-10 minutes. The bob has a brake lever so you can determine your own speed!
Ice skating In winter, the Lenzerheide sports field is transformed into the 'Lenzerheidner iis Paradiis' in the heart of the village centre.
Horse drawn carriages Romantic rides are available from the resort centre.
Children There is plenty to do for the children including the Globi kids programme which has everything your children could wish for, such as igloo building, fairy tale hour and magic shows.

For a lively night there is the Stall Bar dancing club at the Hotel Pöstli. The Cinema Music Club in Hotel Kurhaus is a former cinema and today probably the liveliest disco club in Lenzerheide with top DJs and live acts. For a quiet and relaxing evening you will find plenty of cosy pubs and restaurants.
