Davos Ski Resort

Alongside sister resort Klosters, Davos in the Swiss Graubunden region gives access to over 300km of skiing and snowboarding in the Davos-Klosters ski area – one of the largest ski areas in Switzerland rivalling the Matterhorn ski paradise and 4 Vallées. Snowsports are available in six distinct areas on two sides of the valley – Parsenn, the largest, features a speed run and night skiing whilst Jakobshorn, open the longest during winter, is a freestyler's haven with two halfpipes and a fun-park. Like many large ski areas there is something to suit every ability level. Intermediates and improvers in particular will be in their element with a glut of blue and red pistes on offer across the five main areas of Jakobshorn, Madrisa, Parsenn, Pischa and Rinerhorn.

In comparision to the village character of Klosters, Davos is in fact a fully fledged working town and the largest community in Switzerland. The Davos Dorf district forms the hub for snowsports with access to the Davos Parsenn area and on over to Klosters. The highest town in the Alps, Davos is no stranger to world-class events and is due to host FIS Cross Country World Cup races as well as the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour O´Neill Evolution event during the 2010/11 season.

Davos is easily accessible by train from major Swiss airports using the efficient Swiss Travel System and is also linked to St. Moritz, Zermatt and Andermatt by the scenic Glacier Express.
