The lighter side of skiing
Skiing down Switzerland’s sublime slopes usually arouses a huge sense of enjoyment, and for one week a year, laughs are amplified to a new level throughout Arosa, in Graubünden. The annual Humor Festival draws comedians from the German area of Switzerland to perform laugh-out-loud performances. It’s the biggest festival of its kind in Switzerland and spreads from the town center to its main venue: a 1,000-capacity tent located at the peak of mountain Tschuggenhütte which is reachable by foot or on skis. A few quirky awards are presented to particularly hilarious individuals, including Snow Man of the Year and The Arosa Humor Shovel Award. The festival, which started in 1992, takes place in early to mid-December.
