This year, we are guests in Switzerland, more precisely in the beautiful, snow-reliable Arosa.
The snow sports area of Arosa Lenzerheide in the Swiss canton of Graubünden is impressive with 225km of prepared pistes up to altitude of 2,685m. Wide pistes for making turns with a large radius or steep slopes, where you really need to use your skis’ edges are to the delight of all winter sports fans – that’s what Arosa Tourism promises. We will subject this promise to an exact reality check and will allow for a whole day for testing the pistes.
We stay at the 4-star Waldhotel Arosa hotel.
The hotel lies right at the piste (ski-in, ski-out convenience), has modern rooms, a 1,100m²-large spa area and an excellent cuisine. The entire seminar area with panoramic windows has been reserved for us.
The accommodation package, the seminar package and the ski pass are charged by the hotel with the check-out bill and have to be booked when booking the WS Days.
Participants who do not stay at the hotel, pay only the cost for the seminar and the ski pass. They can of course join the dinner at the Waldhotel on Monday.
As in every year, the focus of the WS Days is on networking and exchange.
“The WS Days are always a great opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues across national borders and to discuss different topics – for example, employee acquisition, wage models and financing models for employee accommodation. I think it is brilliant that a lot of the exchange and networking takes place when skiing together. With the participation in the WS Days, you learn plenty about the current trends in the industry. This year I am looking forward to hear more about the topic “ski school inclusive”, which is practised by the Skischule Arosa.” (Tom Egger, Skischule Hirschegg)
“I think it is fantastic to have so many ski school in one place, in particular larger and smaller ones. One can exchange in an informal atmosphere, can learn from each other and there is always an aha-effect… and of course one also learns about the latest from Waldhart and gets to know your staff in person (Charlotte Lannou, Skischule Davos)
This year, a full day is reserved for skiing for the first time. Guides from the Arosa and Lenzerheide ski schools will lead us through their ski area; the ski pass price includes both ski areas - Arosa und Lenzerheide.
The crowning end of the day is the Flying Dinner in the Güterschuppen, a hip restaurant in Arosa, where we will let the skiing day come to an end together.
If you don’t manage to visit the spa area on Monday (arrival day), you should manage to do so on the second day after skiing.
