Davos Ski Resort
Davos is a perennial Ski Club favourite and a bustling town that provides access to six snowsure ski areas and 300km of varied slopes, shared with neighbouring Klosters.
There is a long history of snowsports in the Davos Valley, particularly on the local Parsenn Mountain where the funicular was built for skiers over 80 years ago (it has since been upgraded!). This is now one of six areas covered by the regional ski pass, which provides access to 55 lifts – several of which have also been recently rebuilt. Getting between the areas can be a bit of a hassle – especially to Klosters – but there is a good bus service linking up all the areas that comes free with your ski pass.
For a ski resort, Davos is a big town and as a result almost all of the accommodation is a walk or short bus ride away from the lifts. But what this does mean is that the range of hotel and chalet options are vast, as is the choice of bars and restaurants – just try not to visit when the World Economic Forum is in town as it is packed and even more expensive than usual (but you might just get the slopes to yourself…).
Why not join Ski Club Freshtracks in Davos this season? There are no fewer than five holidays heading out to this great resort – there's something for everyone!
If you've booked your own trip, the very best way to learn about the different mountains in the valley is via your Ski Club Rep – in town this winter from January until March, but note that no Rep will be present during the World Economic Forum week (18th – 25th January).
Be sure to also join our popular Ski Club's Davos Facebook Page if you’re heading out to Davos this season – if you have any questions then someone will no doubt be able to help!
What's New for 2019/20?
Davos Klosters has made life easier this season for those who choose to drive to the area. The Gotschnatunnel, part of the Klosters ring road, is undergoing a three-stage renovation, and the second stage has been completed prior to the start of the season.
Further additions for the new season are an igloo village which features a hotel and a bar open every Saturday and Sunday for those who fancy a different après-ski experience. In further après related news, the Chalet Bolgen bar, which has been a temporary structure which was dismantled at the end of every season since 2016, has been turned into a permanent wooden chalet after proving greatly popular in the last few seasons.
