Klosters has always been a Ski Club favourite. The combination of the charming, traditional village and the easy access to some of Switzerland’s finest skiing is hard to beat.
Direct access is available to the biggest of the six ski areas within the valley that Klosters shares with its neighbour Davos, via a two-stage cable car to Gotschnagrat. The Madrisabahn heads up out of the opposite end of town to the Madrisa area – home to a good beginner area and also some underrated steeper terrain. The other areas are a little further away, but a free bus is included with your lift pass and this makes getting around easy.
Compared to Davos, Klosters is a much quieter, much more traditional affair. It is definitely upmarket – this is the favourite resort of the Royal Family after all – but it is also quite understated and relaxed. Chalet-style buildings dominate and the main road skirts around the town centre, making it much quieter than up in Davos.
There’s no better way to explore Klosters than with Ski Club Freshtracks this season. After a six year absence from our roster of resorts we return with three Swiss Singles Peak Experience holidays, ideal for single skiers looking to ski with other like-minded Ski Club members.
As with Davos, there is also a Ski Club Rep stationed in Klosters this season. Five Reps will be in resort for two weeks each between January and March, but just note that no one will be repping during the World Economic Forum between 18th-25th January.

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.
