Is there any sort of babysitting and daycare there, like classy ski resort in the US
I know that in the summer they do provide babysitting, I am not sure about the winter

I stayed at the metropol for a week last winter. There is one five star hotel in Arosa but I wasn't interested in bringing food or schlepping back and forth for every meal. I did take the nicest room they had available at the metropol it had a balcony with a great view that I'll attach to this post. The room was recently redone but still super Yeshivish eg, no TV I had a negel vasser and krias shema al hamita next to my bed.
The skiing was insane though, best I've ever had I think it's 3rd biggest in Switzerland I took a mountain guide and highly recommend it he took me to all the peaks and all the great off piste spots that would have been very difficult on my own.

How much did the guide cost? Where did you find him?

Just as an added tip, I just checked my chase account as the hotel charge posted & he is indeed in the category of 2x the points on travel when using the sapphire card + its forex free.
