Being a regular skier, with a need for speed, i thought Arosa being a small resort would not compare to the likes of Avoriaz and the big french resorts, however not only is the skiing fantastic but the resort it self is a hidden gem.
The train journey alone is stunning and the resort is picturesque. It doesnt take very long to fall in love with this beautiful resort. It may be a quiet little town but with very friendly locals who are always up for a chat on the bus!
Arosa is expensive like all of switzerland but do great deals for students and eating in saves the pennies.
The skiing conditions were perfect and despite being half term, the queues were minimal. There aren't many pistes however it was still great fun especially if you know a local who knows the secrets. The resort couldn't be more ideal for beginners though with lovely wide blues to get you started.
There are also some lovely walking routes which are great to explore on an afternoon off and there are also some designated sledge routes which are great fun! There are many other activities too which will keep any non-skiier busy (great if you want to ski in peace!)
Overall, Arosa has something for everyone. It has been one of the best holidays i have been on and I can't wait to get back there next year!
