ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You will spend 3 full days skiing on piste with your fellow Freshtrackers and a Ski Club Rep. The vast and varied slopes of Davos make it an ideal choice to spend a long weekend. From long tree-lined runs which extend all the way down to the valleys below, to the wide runs on the Jakobshorn Mountain, this is a great place to perfect your technique.
Groups will be organised based on ski level, the trip is aimed at Intermediate (Red) and Advanced Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) on piste skiers. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the weekend you will receive an updated grading from your Ski Club Rep.
You will be staying at the 4* Sunstar Parkhotel, an impressive, centrally located hotel with spa facilities – including a large swimming pool and fitness centre. At the end of a long day on the mountain, you'll be able to unwind in the comfort of your own single room, before enjoying a delicious five-course dinner in the panoramic restaurant. The hotel runs a free shuttle service to and from the ski lifts throughout the season.
