Shaqiri Winterdays

The exciting package for school classes

Sun, snow and fun in Arosa – the Shaqiri Winter Days programme is specifically tailored for kids and teenagers. Students obtain the opportunity to try out different winter sport activities and to re-discover the pleasure of Alpine winter fun. Enjoy an exciting yet inexpensive one or two day trip with your school class to beautiful Arosa!

1 Day Programme

Option 1:
- Snowshoe hiking with an instructor

2 Day Programme

The 2 day programme combines both options of the one day programme.

Studies have shown that children and teenagers are less and less exposed to winter sports activities. Arosa would like to counteract this trend and tries to inspire the young generation to re-discover the fun of winter sports. With special offers for school classes Arosa wants to give children and teenagers the opportunity to discover and to fall in love with the diverse offers the Alpine winter sports areas have to offer.

Patron Xherdan Shaqiri

You might wonder why we call our offer "Shaqiri Winter Days" ? Here is the reason:
Pascal Jenny, Tourism Director of Arosa, made a bet with Xherdan Shaquiri, the Swiss national football player. Pascal claimed that also the second or third generation of immigrated families can find pleasure in the winter mountain world. Xherdan Shaqiri accepted the bet and put it to the test.

Shaqiri’s conclusion was as follows: „I was totally surprised. The winter day in Arosa was great. We tried out ever thing from sledding to winter hiking, played curling and went cross-country skiing. I have to say the Swiss mountains and especially Arosa are simply great. I clearly lost the bet." The idea is now with the support of Xherdan Shaqiri and Swiss Tourism to motivate the so called “secondos” to try out more winter sports activities – the Swiss national football player Xherdan Shaqiri acts as a role model. Our vision: to inspire all students to do more winter sports.
