Where to Stay?
You won’t want to miss a moment of the fun and excitement at Arosa gay ski week. Location and convenience are important factors in choosing a place to rest your head while traveling. There are plenty of options for various budgets ranging from hotels to apartments at the Arosa village. We'll be staying at Hotel Vetter, where we can literally stumble slightly hungover to the ski lift at the front door. It's also just 2 minutes from the station making the transfer seamless.
So why not dust off those ski boats or even try it for the first time if you're a beginner?!
See you on the slopes!
