Lenzerheide is rather a charming old town linked with Valbella by a lake, as well as by lifts. They combine to form a picturesque, but not particularly exciting ski area, with one little-known claim to fame: Margaret and Denis Thatcher brought their twins here to learn to ski. Much of the skiing takes place on either side of a wooded valley – some runs in the trees, some above them. The uniform shape of the valley tends to make the runs in this area a little up-and-down and monotonous. However, there are some surprisingly steep and gladed slopes, sometimes mogulled, beneath the Rothorn cable car, at the Valbella end of the valley.
