Family holidays in Davos
Winter sports fun for the whole family with affordable packages.
In winter, Davos Klosters offers families a wealth of different options. The little ones familiarise themselves with the snow in a playful manner and experience their first moments on skis, while their older siblings have a blast at JatzPark.
Davos Klosters has five winter sports areas, with more than 269 km of pistes, numerous ski schools and children’s lifts and three toboggan runs.
Valley ski lifts Davos
If it's possible to describe a ski lift as 'famous', then it certainly applies to the Bolgenlift in Davos. Built in 1934, the Bolgen was the first T-bar ski lift in the world.
Even today, the Bolgen remains a popular meeting point for skiers of all ages.
The Bolgen is also home to the practice areas of Schweizerischen Schneesportschule Davos and Skischule Top Secret with their children's ski schools.
While the little kids get used to moving on skis, bigger kids can test ther mettle on the superpipe. Thanks to its location at the foot of Jakobshorn Davos, it is regarded as one of the most beautiful and biggest pipes going. Anyone who still wants a bit of practice before hitting the pipe will find what they're looking for next door, where a 15x15 metre airbag enables the adventurous to practice their jumps without risk of a painful landing.
Another of Schweizer Schneesportschule Davos’s practice grounds is located in the Bünda area. The ski area features a practice lift, ski courses for beginners and advanced skiers, and the ‘Snow Kids Village’ ski kindergarten for children aged three and older. The area is used exclusively by Schweizer Schneesportschule.
Rinerhorn children's land
The Rinerhorn is an insider's tip in the Davos Klosters Mountains and is a popular winter sports destination for families. The pistes are well suited to young skiers and not too difficult to master. The Rinerhorn children's land is located directly at the trainer lift, where the young skiers can playfully learn to ski by zipping around the different figures on the slope.
Tobogganing in Davos Klosters
Starting directly at the Rinerhorn mountain station, this 3.5 km toboggan run stretches all the way down to the valley station directly beneath the gondola route. On Wednesdays and Fridays, the toboggan run is illuminated for night sledging. Toboggans can be hired at the Rinerhorn valley station.
This descent can be a rather speedy affair in places, so it’s not really suitable for small children.
Davos Klosters also features a toboggan run down to Klosters. From Gotschnaboden middle station, this 3.5 km toboggan run descends to the Klosters Platz valley station. Toboggan hire is possible at the start of the toboggan run at Gotschnaboden middle station.
