Switzerland's number one holiday destination offers both. The Brüggerhorn in Arosa for example or the Slow Mountain in Davos blend these attributes beautifully. And now, with three new hotels and the new Freestyle Indoor Hall in Laax, Graubünden has even more highlights to offer this winter.
Along the length of the runs on Arosa's Brüggerhorn are "lounges" offering just the right kind of refreshment. Over looking Davos is the Schatzalp with its ski slopes and historic hotel. Where else can you step into your skis and glide down to a more leisurely way of life? Speed merchants won't be found here, nor artificial snow! And there is nothing hurried in the Via Engiadina either. On foot you pass through the enchanted stillness and vivid winter scenery of the Unterengadin and as you move from hotel to hotel your luggage is simply forwarded ahead of you.
Graubünden is also fully aware that there is a faster side to life! Electrifying action and pace can be found in its "speed" offers. In the new Freestyle Arena in Laax you can mingle with the speed-freaks and aces and perfect your own snowboard and freeskiing techniques.
Graubünden's Olympic gold medallist Carlo Janka honed his skills on the 2200 plus kilometres of ski runs in Graubünden. In Marc he will defend his title as the World Cup champion in Lenzerheide. And if you want to go even faster than Carlo Janka, then there is always the oldest bob run in the world - a 75-second white knuckle ride.
