Ski area Davos/Klosters Mountains

The "Davos Klosters Mountains" lift pass allows you to take advantage of absolute skiing enjoyment on around 275 kilometres (incl. skiing trails) of piste in the five ski areas Madrisa, Parsenn, Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn and Pischa (excl. Schatzalp). At an altitude between between 810 and 2,844 m, pistes covering all levels of difficulty and 47 modern lifts provide a great deal of variety. In addition, there is the especially high snow security, allowing snow enjoyment into April!

A comfortable commuting gondola transporting 100 persons at once quickly takes you from Davos into the Jakobshorn ski area. A highlight is the 12 km long run from Weissfluh to Küblis with an altitude difference of 2,034 m. Furthermore, numerous first class freeride areas, illuminated pistes, and challenging black runs for pros are also to be found. Not only that, but the area is also a paradise for snowboarders: national and international competitions take place in the region's fun parks.

The Jakobshorn - a snowboard mecca for years - with the superpipe on the Bolgen deserves special mention. But the other areas also have kickers, rails and a boardercross with kicker - there really is nothing left to be desired! The Pischa area has almost exclusively freeride areas and is one of the largest in Switzerland.

On the easy pistes and practice areas at the Rinerhorn especially families will feel well-catered for. The broad pistes at Jakobshorn are very well suited for the whole family. At Bolgen at the foot of Jakobshorn, children can explore the fascination of skiing on a Disney-themed parcours in the children's ski school, while parents can enjoy the sun in one of the beach chairs. The children's area Madrise Land also attracts families with children.

The ski area offers about 20 Wi-Fi hotspots in mountain restaurants and gastronomical facilities.

Early birds also have the chance to enjoy untouched, freshly prepared pistes in the Parsenn ski area first thing in the morning before the area officially opens, all the while experiencing a gorgeous sunrise in the snow - the perfect start to a day of skiing!

The "Schatzalp / Strela" lift pass is ideal for leisurely skiers. In the small skiing area with approx. 10 km of pistes, beginners in particular feel at home. But also experienced skiers and snowboarders can let off steam on medium-difficulty slopes. Access to the ski area is possible with the Davos Platz funicular.

Night skiing Davos

In Switzerland, there are several resorts where you can go night skiing, such as e.g. in the ski area Davos Klosters. Every Wednesday and Friday the piste at Rinerhorn is available for night skiing from 19:00 - 23:00. At this time, night tobogganing is possible on the toboggan run, which is also illuminated. A futher night skiing piste can be found at Selfrange ski lift in Klosters, where skiers and snowboarders can go night skiing or boarding on Tuesdays between 19:00 and 21:00 and on Fridays between 19:30 and 21:30. Apart from night skiing, Nordic skiers can also go cross-country skiing at night time - the approx. 2.5 km cross-country ski trail is illuminated daily until 21:30. Additionally, an approx. 3.2 km trail in Klosters gives cross-country skiers the opportunity to go cross-country skiing at night time every Tuesday and Thursday until 21:30. Tickets for night skiing can be bought in resort.

Après ski Davos

According to the motto "from piste to party" you can experience aprés ski and party when and where you feel like it! In the ski area itself you will already find many sun terraces and snow bars to get going and down in the valley there is an even larger selection discos, night clubs, bars and pubs which are the ideal basis for a fun party evening. Go and visit the Jakobshorn, for example and see the popular party place "Bolgen Plaza".

Even away from the slopes, there are plenty of opportunities to spend the day as varied as possible: for example, in the "Eau-là-là" adventure pool with wellness area, the Färbi sports hall with climbing wall, tennis and squash courts, 156 km of winter hiking trails, toboggan runs, paragliding, an indoor riding arena, horse-drawn sleigh rides and much more.

If you prefer to experience a bit of culture, there is also a cinema centre, various museums such as the Winter Sports Museum and a variety of restaurants with local and international specialities, as well as a nice shopping promenade.

Snowpark: JatzPark Davos

Since the late 1980's the Jakobshorn is known as a freestyle Mecca, and therefore in 1993 the "Bogenschanze" was opened as a mere snowboarder's hotel. However the snow park and the SuperPipe are the real highlights at the Jakobshorn. The "JatzPark" is located directly at the "Jatz Junior" lift and offers everything a freestyler's heart may desire. At 2,300 m altitude the park provides 3 different lines: medium jib line, medium slopestyle line and pro slopestyle line. Various kickers, such as the 18 m Big Air, wallride spine, tractor tyre bonk or rails, in form of elbow rails or a 6 m long straight pipe - there is something for everyone here and creativity can run riot.

If a perfect freestyle day has not ended with the park closure and you still want to go out and have fun, then the "Jazzhütte" is the best place to go. A jacuzzi and sun terrace, as well as regular visits by international DJ's are a guarantee for a great end to the day with the finest tunes playing.

The special highlight on the Jakobshorn is the 120 m long superpipe. It is located on the Bolgen in the valley of Davos. You can also use the pipe for training several times a week in the evening thanks to floodlighting. Regular maintenance ensures that you will always find the halfpipe perfectly prepared.

Besides the mega freestyle paradise at the Jakobshorn there is also a smaller snow park at the Rinerhorn and one at the Selfrangalift, as well as a ski and bordercross run at Parsenn and Madrisa. So if you are on holiday in Davos-Klosters and looking for solid freestyle fun, you are absolutely in the right place here!
