Pregnant Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince Harry have been enjoying a spot of sunshine in the pretty Swiss ski resort of Arosa.

Pictured there this weekend for the wedding of professional polo-player Mark Tomlinson to Olympic dressage gold medalist Laura Bechtolsheimer, the Princes were seen hitting the slopes, whilst the Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a snowy stroll.

If you fancy a skiing like a Royal, you couldn't do much better than this premium resort...

Why go?
The chocolate-box pretty, compact ski resort of Arosa is situated at the bottom of a wide valley, keeping it sunny and sheltered from strong winds.

Sitting in the Graubünden mountains, it is within easy access of Zurich and offers over 70 kilometres of groomed pistes, 13 lifts and a good mix of red and blue runs.

This little resort is also ideal for the non-skier like pregnant Kate, as it has 60 kilometres of winter walking trails that take you up on to the slopes. This means you can meet up with your winter sports travel buddies for a spot of lunch, and make the most of the views and the fresh air.

The Tschuggen Grand Hotel offers modern luxury, making for a decedent ski break. With panoramic views, the hotel also boasts it's own Tschuggen-Express lift to shoot you out onto the slopes without you ever having to lug your skis anywhere.

Their striking spa and wellness centre has four floors of pampering and an impressive water world of pools – enough to keep those non adventure-sports folks more than content.

The Tschuggen Grand boasts five restaurants from the informal La Vetta, to fine dining at the Grand Restaurant and even a traditional Swiss style eatery. It also has it's own bar and a cigar lounge, which is good news as the nightlife isn't pumping in Arosa (something we're sure the pregnant Duchess is gutted about).

Don't miss
The breath-taking views at the top of the Weisshorn mountain. With a 4,506 metre summit, it is a major peak in the Alps and offers beautiful panoramic views of 400 mountain peaks of Switzerland and neighbouring countries.

A two-stage cable car links the village to the summit, where the modern Gipfelrestaurant sits. An irregular hexagon shape covered in aluminium scales, the views make it a great place for a spot of lunch.
