Dual Ski Bob in Arosa

A qualified ski instructor from the Swiss Ski and Snowboard School Arosa travels with the skiers and steers the bob smoothly over the slopes. The guest sits comfortably in a large seat shell and is secured by safety belts.

Dual skiing allows people with physical disabilities to experience the pleasure of skiing, in the company of a qualified snow sports instructor. The dual ski bob is suitable for both children and adults. 

Would you like to drive the bob independently?
Our snow sports instructors also give mono bob lessons to beginners up to experienced drivers.

The financial support of the Verein Blindenschneesport Arosa [Arosa Visually Impaired Snow Sports Association] allows the Swiss Ski and Snowboard School Arosa to give lessons under special conditions.
