Hochwang

''Real, relaxing and full of possibilities''

The Hochwang mountainsides between Chur and Arsoa are sun-spoiled and boast plenty of natural snow at 2,533m above sea level. These runs are still insider tips among those skiers looking for real cottage romance and for tracks beyond mass tourism. Be among the few to carve your skis in the well prepared pistes or sink into the untouched powder snow slopes of the Schanfigg.

Family und leisure sports

In the unspoilt nature of Hochwang, recreational athletes and families will find pure winter pleasure. After the ride with the chair lift and the ski lift to the Goldgrouben, 11 fantastically groomed natural snow pistes open up for every level of difficulty. The wide range of slopes guarantees even less experienced skiers a safe skiing experience. A little off the piste is the practice lift, so that even the youngest skiers can try their first turns with their parents or ski instructors. Well-marked and perfectly rolled toboggan runs guarantee fun and good spirits for young and old. Hikers can explore the Hochwang area over snow-covered, wide pastures and through quiet forests, and in the magic of a snow-covered winter landscape they can forget stress and everyday life while snowshoeing.

Nostalgic ski festival "Rötali Run"

The nostalgic ski festival "Rötali Run" at Hochwang is a highlight and is always held on the second last Saturday before the end of the season. A downhill slope for parallel slalom, of course with ski jump, is prepared with great care in the morning before sunrise. Members of the Skiclub Hochwang mark an ideal race track for men and women, who will compete in antiquated clothing and equipment, with original hazel sticks. "A little courage is needed to race down the slope with the slippery skis, with or without edges or staves, and in uncomfortable, old-fashioned clothes," explains a participant in grandfather look. Meanwhile, the Nostalgia Ski Festival attracts not only many nostalgics, but also many interested spectators.
