The Davos Klosters skiing area is one of the largest in the Alps, with over 300 km of marked ski and snowboard runs, including one 12 km run all the way down to Küblis There are five main winter sports areas. If you plan to ski in more than one area, it is worth buying a regional pass covering all five areas. All passes can be purchased from any of the main lift stations, or online.

Madrisa  - ideal for beginners and intermediates, though there are harder runs too, including one right back down into the village. Take the bus 231 or 235 from the centre down to Klosters Dorf and the blue 4-person gondola lift will take you up to the top in around eight minutes.

Parsenn – the largest area, with something to suit everyone. From Klosters, you take the Gotschnagrat cable car (the one you can see from the bedroom window) from behind the train station. Lifts and ski runs connect the Gotschna area to the Weissflühjoch area on the Davos side, also reached via the Parsennbahn funicular railway from near Davos Dorf railway station. There are several runs back down into the valley on both sides, including the 12 km run right down from the Weissflühgipfel (2844 m) to the village of Küblis (810 m), where you can take the bus or train back up to Klosters.  

Tip: At the end of the day, start at the top of the Weissflühjoch just before the lifts stop running and ski for another hour back down into Klosters, then take the bus back up the apartment.  Or take the no. 49 run (not for beginners), and, snow permitting, you can ski right down into our garden!


Selfranga - Just a few yards from the apartment is the Selfranga T-bar lift - one of the first ski lifts in Switzerland - ideal for children, beginners and less confident skiers. NB The regional pass is not valid on the Selfranga run.

Jakobshorn - Well-known as one of Europe's main snowboarding centres, but great for skiers of all abilities too. Plenty of space, with some very wide pistes and two blue runs back down into the valley. Take the cable car up from next to the Davos Platz railway station (go through the underpass).



 Rinerhorn – Generally quieter than some of the other areas, as it is at the far end of Davos, but definitely worth a visit, with runs for all abilities and a mini course specially for children. Take the train to Davos Glaris (about 40 mins. from Klosters) and then take a six-person gondola up to the slopes.


Some of the runs are floodlit on some evenings, giving you a few extra hours on the slopes.
