Churwalden - Ski Area Guide

Churwalden, Switzerland

Ski Resort in Swiss Alps (1,229m4,032ft to 2,230m7,316ft). Rated: 2/5 (from 1 ratings)

A medium sized resort and the closest to Chur in the lift linked region which includes larger Lenzerheide Valbella and Parpan.

This Walser village is situated halvway between Chur and Lenzerheide. Two chair lifts transport experienced skiers directly to the ski slopes whilst children and beginners can have fun on the practice slopes right by the village.

The longest all year-round toboggan run in the world is a true highlight: with its 31 turns, 480 vertical metre descents and a total length of over 3.1 kilometres (nearly two miles), it offers lots of high-speed fun for all ages. The resort also boasts the highest rope park in the world.
