Night cross-country skiing trail

Tips from Arosa cross-country skiing veterans

"The practice area in the Maranermulde is probably the most beautiful in the Alps. It slopes very slightly to the north, so the snow is perfect all day and you can still enjoy the sun from early to late. The experience is crowned by the incredible view of the mountains surrounding the area. Perfect conditions for beginners!"

>> To the route

"The Isel is Arosa's refrigerator and always offers the best snow conditions. The flat terrain invites you to skate and offers ideal training conditions for the Engadine Ski Marathon. In December and January the sun shines briefly from around 11.00 - 14.00, but all the more intensively for that!"

>> to the route

"For cross-country skiers with good physical and technical skills, the Prätschalp trail is a worthwhile experience. On the almost eight kilometres, you experience not only a sporting challenge but also a dreamlike landscape with sunny views."

>> to the route

"The sunny trail spoils all the senses. It is located in the "hollow of the knee" of Schanfigg and offers a view of the entire Plessur mountains up to the Calanda, the Ringelspitze and the Sardona massif. A bench invites you to linger and enjoy."

>> to the route

"The level panoramic trail (for classic cross-country skiers) offers deep views of the Arosa railway, which winds along the Plessur through the Schanfigg. At the furthest point you can see as far as Chur, the Calanda and the Tödi."
