Professional and efficient preparation lays the foundation for top-class sporting achievements. The Roland Arena and the Lenzerheide holiday region offer athletes and trainers the best possible conditions for training camps at 1,400 metres above sea level.
The heart of the arena is the Nordic House. The impressive wooden building was opened in December 2016 and has since welcomed thousands of leisure and competitive athletes to the Lenzerheide holiday region every year. The infrastructure includes the Nordic Hostel with 13 multi-bed rooms, 57 beds and shared bathrooms/showers, a bistro, an athletics room exclusively for athletes, public changing rooms, showers and toilets, as well as a rifle room, waxing room and boot dryer in the basement. The sports arena is open from the end of May to the beginning of April and looks forward to welcoming guests.
The biathlon facility was opened in 2013 and is the first and only permanent biathlon facility that meets competition standards in Switzerland. It comprises a automatic shooting range with 30 World Cup-compliant stands for a shooting distance of 50 metres and a control centre. An additional 20 target stands can be converted as needed for airgun training sessions or competi-tions with a shooting distance of 10 metres.
The use of our biathlon facility is subject to reservation and compliance with the user regulations.
The existing roller ski track of 1.6 kilometres is perfectly integrated into the landscape and leads from the shooting range up to the St. Cassian Chapel and back to the biathlon facility. The track is single and double-tracked and includes around 25 metres of altitude.
Construction work for the extension of the roller ski track began in September 2021. The construction programme has so far been completed according to schedule. Thus, all forestry work has already been completed, the first 2-kilometre loop has been prepared down to the surface layer, and the first building structures have also been built. The construction site was suspended as of 4 November 2021 and work will resume on 4 April 2022. The opening of the first new roller ski track loop (2 km) will follow on 1 June 2022. The overall opening of the new four-kilometre roller ski track is on 17 September 2022.

An athletics room (120 square metres) is available for athletes at the Roland Arena Nordic House. This room is not accessible to the public and is reserved for the exclusive use of top athletes and talented young athletes. The SKLZ products are perfectly suited to a specific and varied athletics training programme.
During the winter months it has six snow-covered cross-country circuits of 1.5 to 4 kilometres as well as a 150-metre penalty loop. The Arena is also linked to the 56-kilometre network of cross-country skiing tracks in the Lenzerheide holiday region.
The cross-country skiing network in the Lenzerheide holiday region stretches from Lantsch/Lenz to Parpan and has been named one of the best areas in Switzerland by the roof organisation Loipen Schweiz. Every day, cross-country skiers can expect 56 km of freshly groomed courses for classic and skating as well as for different levels. In the region you will find various mostly flat cross-country trail sections as well as conditionally and technically demanding terrain. In particular, the La Pala race track or the FIS Tour de Ski track is considered a touchstone for every experienced cross-country skier.
In the evening, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., you also have the opportunity to do your laps on the illuminated cross-country course in the Roland Arena.
