The message came from the Arosa tourism office and was directed to Hoteliers and apartment owners in the graubünden village: "In connection with security investigations with respect to the World Economic Forum in Davos (WEF) called on the cantonal police, Arosa feedback of each of the Logis-donor, whether the people of the Arab news channel Al Jazeera hotel rooms or Private apartments for the period from the beginning of January up to 25. January 2019 booked or a booking wanted/want to have."
In the positive case, the Canton police should be informed in Arosa. Now it is clear why the Kapo launched the unusual survey: "The cantonal police is informed of Grisons, the fact that employees had the end of the Arab transmitter Al Jazeera seriously intend to walk from Arosa to Davos," said Kapo spokeswoman Anita Senti.
Since it was unclear to how many persons were and where they stayed, have started the Graubünden cantonal police are among the Hotels and apartment owners, a survey. It was in light of the current avalanche danger situation in a "preventive action," says Senti. Why the Al-Jazeera-employees wanted to take this road, is not clear.
The two Grisons resorts of Arosa and Davos are geographically close to each other. Only about twelve kilometers of air line disconnect. To walk the route over a Pass from Arosa to Davos theoretically feasible, but difficult. That would require at least touring skis or snow shoes.
The best way to reach Davos to Arosa via Chur. By car this journey takes 1.5 hours. (anf/cfr)
