Winter Sports

With six hours of CME accredited academic sessions per day (applied for pending confirmation), the extended lunch break from 11:30 – 16:30 offers ample time to pursue winter sports or relax in the Kulm Spa.

Located right at the ski slopes, the Arosa Kulm Hotel & Alpin Spa is the perfect ski-in ski-out starting point. Equipment is stored at the hotel entrance ski room and you can look forward to preheated ski boots !

Building a strong peer network is essential in high risk professions such as spine surgery.

Kulm is the ideal setting for academic exchange, honest case discussions and getting to know each other.

Combining academic debate with skiing breaks is ideal and many friendships have been forged in Arosa.

Every day is concluded with a networking dinner in one of the excellent Kulm restaurants. Partners and familes are most welcome to attend.

Typically, the fireside discussions continue well into the night, on occasion transitioning into piano playing and song !
