Lenzerheide is a mountain resort in the canton of Graubünden, Switzerland at the foot of the Parpaner Rothorn.
Lenzerheide ski resort
Lenzerheide is popular as skiing resort and for its lake (Heidsee), which is frozen in winter. The Lenzerheide Bergbahnen AG offers access to the skiing areas of Stätzerhorn, Danis, Scalottas, and Rothorn. At the end of 2013 the Lenzerheide ski resort was linked with Arosa by cable-car, creating the new ski resort of Arosa Lenzerheide. Since then transport passes are available to both resorts.
Arosa/Lenzerheide’s ski area is one of the world’s best with an incredible range of terrain for all levels of skier and snowboarder and for every taste. Along with wide gentle, perfectly groomed pistes for beginners and nervous intermediates there are big, steep-sided bowls for freeride freaks, and every type of ski run in between. On the slopes good skiers can also tackle the World Cup piste. The slopes climb up to 2,865m above sea level meaning not only great long ski runs back down but also snow-sure altitudes to help guarantee great conditions.
Besides regular days on the pistes the ski area organises lots of extra options to make your Arosa Lenzerheide ski holiday even more special. For example, with the Early Bird package you can get out on the slopes at 6.30am (or perhaps lie in a bit longer and take the 8am option) and have the freshly groomed slopes to yourself before a great breakfast. Or at the other end of the ski day, if you have not had enough of the slopes by the time the lifts close, there are night skiing options and even skiing under the full moon when it provides maximum moonlight each month.
For experienced freeriders the Rothorn in Parpan and the Arosa Weisshorn are among the most well-known Swiss freeride mountains, with great lines descending from the Rothorn and Weisshorn (second section) cable cars.
Freestyle skiers and boarders can have a ball in the Arosa Lenzerheide snow park, which extends to four different areas, again suitable for all tastes and levels. The spacious Tschuggen Park’n’Pipe is one of the best in Switzerland, whilst the Wood Ranch on the descent to the Weisshornbahn valley station and the Stätz Jib area, are both excellent too. The new fun slope in Stätzertäli is especially popular with families.
