Chalet Runca is in an excellent location for the swimming lake, and forest trails, in Summer, to name just a few of the many activities that Arosa offers. The winter ski pistes and trails for walking and running are of exceptional quality. Close to the shops by walking, guests can also take the free resort bus. Situated in the beautiful Graubunden region of Eastern Switzerland, charming and historic Arosa is 150km by road from Zurich International Airport. The road is mainly autoroute, joining the 30 kilometre (20 miles) mountain road from Chur City, up to the end of the stunning Schannfig Valley.
Arosa benefits from hourly train arrivals from Zurich Airport. The most popular mode of travel to Arosa is via the exclusive Swiss Rail travel. It is an easy two hours fifty six minutes ride (Intercity followed by the modern Arosa Express) and we meet and greet our guests at the newly renovated Arosa Train Station.

Helen and Mike are very welcoming and have everything well organised. The inhouse equipment rental combined with Mike's expertise made renting equipment cheaper and more convenient and a more personal experience. Their home has everything you'd need for a comfortable holiday and is in a good location as it's walking distance from the centre but also has a bus stop right outside which of course runs on swiss time! The village is beautiful and has ample shopping and dining venues. The skiing is varied and it's easy to ski from one area to the next and every easy to end up in the centre at the end of the day for a much needed glass of mulled wine!

This is the third winter holiday we have had at Snowy Pockets, as well as one summer one. It is a large, comfortable home and we are always very well looked after by Helen and Mike and their team. It is a treat to have delicious meals prepared for you as well! The chalet is close to the bus stop where you can take a free bus to the slopes or ski school. A really great holiday, particularly for a large group of family or friends.
