Arosa Lenzerheide is the best ski area in Switzerland - twice over
As part of the «Blick Winter Awards», the Blick Group together with Switzerland Tourism called for votes for the best ski resort in Switzerland in the five categories «Ski and Snowboard», «Sport and Fun», «Family Friendliness», «Small and Fine» and «Cross-country Skiing» and 76 Swiss ski destinations took part. The Blick community voted diligently and cast over 53,000 votes for their favourite ski resorts. The ski resort of Arosa Lenzerheide came out on top in the categories «Ski and Snowboard» and «Family Friendliness» and thus received the award for Best Ski Resort in Switzerland in these two categories.
Best Ski and Snowboard Resort in Switzerland
Since the merger of the Arosa and Lenzerheide ski areas just over 8 years ago, Arosa Lenzerheide has been one of the best and largest ski areas in Europe. 225 kilometres of pistes with snow guaranteed and excellently groomed, long hours of sunshine and a varied culinary offer leave nothing to be desired: black slopes to really get on the edge, wide runs on which curves with large radii can be made, pleasure slopes, free children skiing areas and a snow park with four different areas. In addition, there are top offers and events such as the Light Ride, the Humorfestival, the Ladies Ski World Cup and the Ski Cross World Cup. Last year, Skiresort.de already named the Arosa Lenzerheide ski resort as the 2021 test winner in the categories «range of slopes», «best black slope» and «5-star ski resort». Now the Blick community is following suit and awarding Arosa Lenzerheide. «We are delighted to have received the award for the best ski and snowboard area in Switzerland, as this was the result of a vote by guests,» says Philipp Holenstein, CEO of Arosa Bergbahnen AG, happily. Thomas Küng, CEO of Lenzerheide Bergbahnen AG, adds: «It shows us that we as the ski resort of Arosa Lenzerheide are doing a lot right with our offers and our service philosophy, and at the same time it motivates us to continue to invest actively in this area.
Best ski resort in Switzerland in the «family friendliness» category
In the «family-friendliness» category, the Blick community also voted the Arosa Lenzerheide ski resort into first place. Public and freely accessible children's areas, numerous blue and family slopes, meeting Globi on his own slope - which opens next Saturday - helping the little fidgety bear to get tired and full, gaining first experiences in the Bear Snow Park or the Woodranch, becoming a real light rider, enjoying children's menus or family platters in mountain restaurants, a detour to Arosa Bear Sanctuary and much more - family skiing days are the most fun in the Arosa Lenzerheide skiing area for the Blick-Communtiy. As a further highlight, the ski school is included in the overnight stay at partner establishments in Arosa for children and young adults.
Special thanks to the staff
For Thomas Küng and Philipp Holenstein, it is clear who they have to thank for these successes: «We are extremely happy about the two first places and would like to thank the Blick community for their vote and their trust. An equally big thank you goes to our approximately 600 employees. Without their dedication and daily commitment, these two successes would not have been possible.»
