enzerheide, apparently a favourite resort of Margaret Thatcher, is often overlooked as a winter sports holiday destination, but it's hard to understand why. There is a wide range of other winter sports activities and excellent infrastructure. There are plenty of good pistes for all abilities and the resort spreads across both sides of the valley, above and below the treeline, to provide ideal conditions at all times of the day. From December 2013 neighbouring Arosa is linked by gondola with Lenzerheide and the combined resorts create the largest linked ski area in Graubünden and one of the ten largest in Switzerland.

Ski and Snowboard Lenzerheide

Wendy Holdener hails from Lenzerheide and famously won the FIS World Cup Combined (Super-G and Slalom) in her hometown in 2016.

Best of the Slopes

The 11k run off Rothorn is very scenic but has both serious flats and serious steep sections. With a guide you can drop off and ski off-piste into Arosa, and now with the resorts connected it is far easier to get back than it used to be.
