Davos Klosters Mountains

Accos: from to

If two of the best get together, something perfect comes out: The five ski resorts Pischa, Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn, Parsenn and Madrisa offer winter sports fun for all claims. They are optimally developed and snow-sure until late springtime. The spectrum for tourists ranges from quiet and rural to vibrant and urban ambiences.

Davos is Europe’s highest town (1560 m) and since the first World Economic Forum in 1970 a meeting point for the world economy. It is also the domicile of the renowned federal Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research. There, snow is scientifically examined and all its secrets are disclosed. Directly in front of the doors of the institute on the ski runs, scientific theory is applied into practice. Here, all kinds of winter athletes come together – from well-off, middle-aged Alpine skiers and families with children to trendy snowboarders.

The chic life happens along the promenade of Davos and forms an attractive contrast to the rural, romantic neighbouring place Klosters. The connection between the two villages was established in 1950, with the opening of the cableway on the 2,285-metre-high Mount Gotschnagrat. However, the two villages have always been completely different as regards their development. In Klosters, the first ski club was founded in 1905, but long time it remained undiscovered by skiing tourists. In this way, the village was able to preserve its quiet and rural charm till this day. The view of the place is untroubled by bare concrete buildings or other architectural eyesores. The traditional wooden houses and the Rhaeto-Romanic stone houses radiate like once an atmosphere of tranquillity and cosiness. Probably, this discreet, original charm and the skiing pleasure off the beaten tracks convince also celebrities, who often mingle inconspicuously among the skiers. For example the film diva Greta Garbo spent each year two month in Klosters, not to mention Prince Charles, who chose the village as his favourite winter sports resort.

In addition to Klosters also the districts Selfranga, Aeuja, Monbiel, Serneus and Mezzaselva belong to the widely ramified community at around 1,200 metres above sea level. Many people consider the region Davos-Klosters as one of the most beautiful ski region in the Alps. On the Rätschenjoch above Madrisa and in the area of Gotschna/Parsenn there are some wonderful deep snow slopes. Led by experienced mountain guides, skiers can always discover new routes off the marked slopes. In the ski resort Madrisa there is also the possibility to enter the classic circuit of Madrisa, which goes from the Schlappiner Joch to Gargellen in Austria. Skiers should only go about this high alpine tour considering the current weather conditions and the danger of avalanches; and they should never waive the expert guidance of a qualified mountain guide.
