November High

Hiking, biking, skiing, cross-country skiing, golfing, bear watching and enjoying views...

At the end of October and during the whole month of November Arosa Lenzerheide offers numerous autumn and winter activities. As of Saturday 27 October various mountain facilities and cross-country skiing tracks will be open and in operation. As soon as snow conditions permit slopes on the Hörnli hill will be prepared and ready for skiers and snowboarders to carve their first tracks. Hiking and biking trails which are not covered by snow will still be open and our mountain facilities will happily transport anyone by foot or bike to mountain tops with breathe-taking views. Depending on weather conditions the golf course Arosa will also still be in operation (holes 1-9).
