Davos Klosters Skiing & Snowboarding

Skiing Davos Klosters is a magical mystery tour of epic proportions. Six ski areas, 5 of which are covered by the one ski pass, provide every type of ski lift, terrain & trail imaginable. The five main ski areas are Parsenn, Madrisa, Jakobshorn, Pischa & Rinerhorn. The sixth ski area is Schatzalp, the smallest of the group. Piste trails total over 300km in length with something for every ski proclivity. Its so big that there are two sides to the ski trail map. See the Parsenn-Madrisa trail map here. See the Jakobshorn-Pischa-Rinerhorn trail map here.

The epic proportions include all ski areas having the majority of ski terrain above a snow sure 1900m elevation to make the most of the 10m average snowfall. As well as unlimited off-piste skiing & snowboarding terrain, there are no less than 12 valley piste trails (& many more routes), some over 12km long, leading back to all points in the valley. One trail descends over 2030 vertical metres. And to top it off, when you find yourself in an apparently remote village, you will likely find a nearby train station for the journey back to Davos or Klosters – and all included in the lift pass.

More information on Skiing & Snowboarding  Davos Klosters Ski Resort is coming soon when we catch up with all the other bits & pieces (yu know - new look website and all!)

When looking at the photos above, note that during the Powderhounds visit we encountered the fiercest blizzard of season 2017/18. Ski conditions were amazing with powder everywhere. However poor visibility & cyclonic winds (right across Europe) were a challenge to the ski lift operators. A great testament to them (& the multiple aspects in the ski resort) that we did any lift assisted skiing at all. If you could only have the face shots we got........!

Davos Klosters Lift Passes

Worth knowing. Davos Klosters has so many ski areas that purchasing lift passes can either be simple or a serious burden.

If skiing multiple areas over several days, the simplest but most expensive option is to buy a Davos Klosters Mountains Regional Pass. The pass covers the 5 main ski areas (Parsenn, Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn, Madrisa & Pischa), the Rhätische Bahn (train) between Küblis & Filisur plus local buses. Note that the towns of Küblis & Filisur represent the absolute extremities of the ski area.

Alternatively, the fiscally frugal may opt for buying daily local lift passes for the individual ski areas, most of which are considerably cheaper than a Regional Pass if only skiing one area per day. Each ski area has its own lift pass. The most expensive to cheapest lift pass (purely based on size & number of lifts) is Parsenn, Jakobshorn, Madrisa, Rinerhorn, Pischa & the cheap Schatzalp-Strela. Local area passes do not include the train.
More to come............ Aaargh!
