Davos-Klosters is a renowned ski resort located in the Graubünden region of Switzerland.
It is actually a combination of two neighboring towns, Davos and Klosters, which offer a wide range of skiing opportunities and a vibrant après-ski scene.
Davos, the larger of the two towns, has a rich history as a traditional mountain town. It gained popularity in the late 19th century as a health resort due to its pristine alpine air. Today, it has evolved into a modern ski destination with a substantial year round population, 2 train stations and efficient transport system. It frequently hosts the World Economic Forum, so you know that the range of accomodation and fascilities is second to none.
Klosters, on the other hand, is a much smaller more traditional village atmosphere that has been a popular destination for the British royal family. It has a limited apres scene, and is fairly expensive but without the pretension. It's also a lot more disconnected from the majority of the ski areas.
The ski area in Davos-Klosters is extensive, with over 300 kilometers of ski slopes catering to skiers of all levels. These are split across several disconnected areas each with their own distinct character.
The Parsenn ski area (95km) is the only one connected to both Davos and Klosters and is famous for its long and scenic runs, it's one of 2 that can be accessed from Davos itself. The funicular train runs from town level, and can be accessed right off bus in Davos Dorf. Why not head to the highest point of the Weissfluhjoch for its stunning scenic panorama and a Rosti, then tackle the not-to-be-sniffed-at black run down (or get the cable car...) The convenience of ski-in/ski-out accommodation is limited in Davos, the closest you will get are the hotels and apartments at the bottom of the Parsenn and Jackobshorn areas. Beware - the Parsenn return route is Black run only, alongside the Funciular tracks (but you get a great view of the Matterhorn in the distance!)
The Jackobshorn (51km) is the second area, at the other end of town in Davos Platz, that connects direct to town. Known more as a Snowboarders mountain, it's wide cruisey slopes make for a great day. At the base of the mountain there's a substantial ski school hub for beginners, with cheap drag lifts and a toboggan hill to keep everyone entertained. It's also often home to a huge olympic halfpipe, hosting big name competitions.
Off piste enthusiasts will love the Pischa - just outside of Davos Dorf, accessible by ski bus, this area is small but reserved almost soley for freeride, with very few groomed pistes. Lastly is the Rinerhorn (41km) , down the road in Glaris, a small and relaxed area.
Klosters has its own small area to ski when you're not going to the Parsenn - The Madrisa (22km)
More than 80% of the runs are above the snowsure altitude 2000m so all area have a great snow record.
The après-ski scene in Davos-Klosters is vibrant and varied. Davos, being the larger town, offers a wide range of entertainment options, including bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. Visitors can enjoy live music, indulge in delicious Swiss cuisine, or simply relax with a drink and soak in the lively atmosphere.
In Klosters, the après-ski scene is slightly more relaxed, with cozy bars and charming mountain restaurants. Overall, Davos-Klosters is a lively ski resort that combines modern amenities with a rich history. Its extensive ski area, convenient connections, and diverse après-ski scene make it a popular choice for skiers of all levels and those seeking a memorable alpine experience.
