Families – Arosa-Lenzerheide

Originally two separate resorts, Lenzerheide and Arosa were joined together by the Urdenbahn cable car in 2013. Now they are only five minutes apart and best of all, since they are joined in a single ticket, you get two resorts for the price of one! While this resort isn’t for thrill seeking advanced skiers, it is perfect for families and especially for those who are at beginner or intermediate levels. Spread across three mountains, the majority of the 140 kilometers worth of runs are blue rated which present the ideal place and setting for a family holiday. Another bonus of this resort is that it gets much more sun than many other alpine resorts and has many trails that are above the tree line, giving stunning views that are normally reserved for summit climbing experts. There is also a scenic Ski Safari route on offer, and from the top of Parpaner Rothorn you can ski straight across a glacier. In our opinion, the town of Lenzerheide makes for the best base for your family holiday.

Single Riders – Zermatt

For many single riders, the quality of the après ski is almost as important as the ski itself. In both of these regards, Zermatt excels. Many of the slopes in Zermatt are not suitable for beginners, so this is a resort for people who really know their stuff. Zermatt has the highest winter sports area in all of the Alps which peaks at an altitude of 3,900 meters. There is also more than 2,133 meters of vertical drop. It also goes without saying that Zermatt is also home to one of the world’s most iconic mountains, the Matterhorn, which rises directly behind the town and is visible from most of the 360 kilometer trail system which connects 2 countries and 3 resort towns, so there is also the possibility to ski over the Theodul Pass and down into the Italian trail system. During the main season the town also has a nightlife atmosphere which has been nicknamed a “winter Ibiza” which is another reason why this is the best location for a single rider.
