The ski area is predominantly situated on the East & West facing slopes above the Lenzerheide plateau & beautiful alpine lake.
As you enter the resort from the North the Rothorn towers high to your left at 2900m. The Rothorn hosts a variety of well groomed pistes including the FIS Men’s World Cup Ski race on the Heimberg/Parpan section and is the place to be to enjoy the afternoon & evening sun.
It is also home to some of the regions best & most challenging Offpiste & Freeriding areas.
The Safari Tour is a must for experienced skiers & snowboarders.
However as The Tour is all off the marked pistes hiring a local guide is recommended as well as taking the full safety equipment.
Opposite The Rothorn lie the East facing slopes of Scalottas & The Staetzerhorn which offer a good variety of pistes that zig zag along its flanks with some great runs through the forests.
The Staetzerhorn black run is mighty & The Staetz also offers floodlit skiing on Friday nights. Scalottas hosts the FIS Women’s World Cup downhill ski races & a quality restaurant on its summit.
And right on The Lodges doorstep is the local Churwalden Pradaschier Ski region. Often empty, with an ideal beginners area in the field at the base of the ski lifts. With a vertical difference of 1000 meters from top to bottom the area offers blue, red & black runs with some excellent off piste, tree runs & secret spots that rarely get ridden out.
