Arosa-Lenzerheide, March 2020
NEW TRIP TO SWITZERLAND FOR WINTER 2020 !!!
One of the biggest ski areas in the swiss Grisons Region is comprised of the perfect couple - Arosa Lenzerheide. Since 2014, the spectacular aerial cableway «Urdenbahn» connects the two ski areas in five minutes only. Proud record-breaker in terms of sunny days, this snow paradise offers countless kilometers of guaranteed snow, diverse slopes, on the pistes - or not !
The speed maniacs would naturally head to the "Silvano Beltrametti" piste - named after the local ski hero. This piste is known as one of the steepest slopes along the women ski world cup events.
The Parpan Rothorn and the Arosa Weisshorn also offer couloirs covered in deep snow and steep slopes to please the adventurous freeriders. A further impressive experience is to ride in the untouched winter landscape between Arosa, Lenzerheide and Tschiertschen.
Maybe you are also seeking new challenges ? You have fun on the pistes, you enjoy freeriding but you can't really find new downhill battles ? Well, you are ready for...telemark !! I would happy to support anyone curious to try out for half-day or a full day. Details to be arranged later accordingly (material rental, lesson with a ski school or not).
"There is nothing more elegant than telemarking. It is the Champions League of snow sports"

SKI HIRE AND SKI SCHOOL
Right at the start of the Rothorn gondola, the Pesko rental shop can provide all sort of fancy tools to ride the mountains down - they even offer telemark skis, how handy is that to please your curiosity for a few hours !? Hiring your equipment there will make it easier for you to return it at the end of the trip.

Renting skis in Switzerland may not be "günstig" as people say here around. It is a bit more burden but cheaper to rent in Darmstadt.
There are plenty of ski schools working in the entire ski area that can help to tweak your technique :https://arosalenzerheide.swiss/de/Region/Lenzerheide/Winter/Skifahren-Snowboarden/Unterricht-Ausruestung-Lenzerheide
