Ski holidays to Davos

Switzerland's premier resort with around 300km of prepared pistes

Davos and the Jakobshorn cable car  
Parsenn skiing  
Toboganning fun, Davos Klosters ski area  

The magnificent high Alps that surround Davos and Klosters offer skiers of all levels a wealth of opportunities in a ski area that covers over 300km of prepared pistes and ample off piste skiing. Another advantage of this area is that the journey from Zurich airport is only about 2½ hours - ideal for a short break as you can leave the resort for your homeward journey in the late afternoon, giving you extra skiing on the final day of your holiday.

The town of Davos is a urban ski haven, with every facility you could wish for and a lively social scene. The highest town in Europe, you will also find pure mountain air close at hand thanks to the excellent transport network. If you prefer a quiet village, try Wiesen which still has access to the Davos slopes, particularly the Rinerhorn. The neighbouring alpine village of Klosters offers a more traditional Swiss feel and is worth a visit during your holiday.

The Davos Klosters ski area

Five large areas spread out on either side of Davos and Klosters with around 300km of prepared pistes. One lift pass will cover you for all of the areas in both Davos and Klosters.

The Parsenn & Weissfluhjoch This is the largest ski area, well connected with funiculars and chair lifts. From the top of the Weissfluhjoch funicular there’s a wide choice of superb runs down five different valleys for the intermediate skier. The black runs over the moguls from up at the Gipfel at 2,840m offer more of a challenge. The 12km piste down to Kublis descends over a variety of terrain until you reach the Schwendi in the woods where there are two beautiful, rustic mountain restaurants where we can recommend the rösti. At the end of the day you can ski the 4km back to Davos.

Jakobshorn A cable car takes you to the summit at 2,590m where there is a wide choice of runs above the tree line for all grades of skier. Bramabuel at 2,492m has runs connecting with all other pistes on the mountain. Plenty of excellent mountain restaurants and bars are spread all over the mountain. The Jakobshorn is one of the most popular haunts for snowboarders, with a half-pipe available.

Pischa Pischa is the winter activities mountain - the perfect place for freeriders on the unprepared pistes, as well as for those wishing to join a ski tour or try snowshoe trekking. The prepared winter hiking trails make it ideal for winter walkers and sun seekers looking for tranquillity in the mountains. 

Rinerhorn The free ski bus running through Davos brings you to the Rinerhorn in about ten minutes and a gondola takes you up to Jatzmeder with a restaurant with large sun terrace. There is a long, scenic and comparatively easy run to the bottom. From Nullisch Grat at 2,490m there is a black run to the bottom for the more experienced skier. The Blockhütte après ski bar at bottom of the Rinerhorn is the perfect place to stop for a drink on your way home. The Rinerhorn is the closest mountain for those staying in Wiesen.

Madrisa Beautiful south facing slopes situated above Klosters and reached by gondola. This ski area is ideal for beginners and intermediate skiers with wide and open runs, several restaurants and lively snow bars. From the summit at 2,602m there is a beautiful long 4km run down to the Zugenhüttli chair lift.
