Davos Klosters Mountains
Winter sports at their finest
The Davos Klosters Mountains connect Davos, Europe’s highest town (1560 m above sea level), and Klosters, the typical mountain village with pretty chalets, with five winter sports areas.
With 80 different pistes over 269 km, the Davos Klosters Mountains are one of the largest winters sports areas in the Alps. Skiers, carvers, snowboarders, freestylers and freeriders – or simply all winter sports enthusiasts – will find just what they’re looking for, because the finest and most exciting winter adventures are on offer. From the Jatzpark on the Jakobshorn, to the carver piste on the Parsenn, to unforgettable freeride trails on the Pischa, through to the children’s course on Madrisa and the Rinerhorn.
Parsenn Davos & Gotschna Klosters
The Parsenn ski region is accessible from Davos and Klosters and is the largest of the five skiing areas. Parsenn is regarded as the cradle of ski sports in Switzerland and as the classic skiing mountain, with endless runs on broad pistes and stylish, traditional mountain huts. It offers pistes of all levels of difficulty, from beginners’ slopes through to steep slopes. Fifteen mountain restaurants take care of your physical well-being and invite you to soak up the sun on the sun terraces.
On Parsenn you will also find the longest ski run. In 1895 four English tourists got lost on the Weissfluhjoch and finally ended up in Küblis. Thus was the 12 km long Parsenn run from Weifssfluhjoch to Küblis discovered and an Alpine myth born. From there the Rhaetian Railway brings winter sports fans back to Klosters or Davos. This service is included in the ski pass.
The Pischa winter sports area has been reinvented for winter 2015/16. Alternative sports are the focus in the winter sports area in the Flüela Valley, like winter hiking, snowshoe trekking, freeriding and ski tours. But guests who just want a bit of sun and quiet will also be well rewarded here. Flawlessly maintained winter hiking trails, designated snowshoe trails and high alpine cross-country ski trails are all on offer. In addition, the area is considered an outstanding starting point for ski tours in open terrain (freeriding). Activity will be concentrated on the aerial tramway from Dörfji to Pischa, which will operate daily. Pischa is the unspoiled alternative for everyone who likes to enjoy the mountains far away from the fuss and bother of the crowds.
The Rinerhorn is regarded as the absolute insider tip among the locals. A "mini course" has been installed for children with various amusing obstacles. The slopes are suitable for families but also for athletically ambitious skiers and they are full of variety. The 3.5 km sledge run is numbered among the top five sledge runs in Switzerland and guarantees a fast-paced descent into the valley. For night owls who find the winter days too short, on the Rinerhorn the nights become day. Every Wednesday and Friday evening there is night skiing and sledging. The new Blockhuus by the lower terminus of the cable car is a real gem. It invites you in for an exquisite cup of coffee after the fun of skiing or sledging, or for a convivial evening in the hut with shared fondue in an incomparable atmosphere.
