Klosters Ski Resort

Klosters, in the Swiss Alps, is linked to nearby Davos and offers extensive skiing whilst retaining the charm of a traditional Swiss mountain village. The Davos- Klosters ski area covers over 300km of pistes across five mountains providing excellent skiing for beginners, intermediates and experts.

Families should head for the south facing Madrisa where children can run around to their hearts' content in the new Madrisa-Land ski paradise, whilst intermediates would do well to ski the idyllic tree lined runs and the confidence building blues of the Parsenn. Experts will find plenty to occupy their time with off piste itineraries, acres of off piste and excellent free riding on all five mountains. The Madrisa is accessible from Klosters Dorf and the Parsenn via the Gotschna gondola from Klosters Platz. For those wishing to go further afield the remaining three mountains, the Jakobshorn, Pischna and Rinerhorn can be reached by bus or train.

Klosters town is quieter compared to its urban neighbour Davos and offers luxurious accommodation, gourmet cuisine and that 'reassuringly expensive' feel. You can sleep at the exclusive Hotel Vereina and eat at Prince Charles's favourite Michelin starred hotel the Walserhof or if you are after something more affordable try the Sweet Rustico Hotel and the Prättiger Hüschi for some fondue.

Klosters is easily accessible by train and bus. Fly to Zurich and travel the picturesque train journey to resort or pre book the Davos Express coach service which runs to resort every Saturday.
