Luxury Ski Chalets in Davos

The highest city in Europe famed for its diversity in sport, leisure and cultural offerings.

A pioneer of winter sports, Davos is one of Europe’s oldest ski resorts having built the world’s first T-bar lift in 1934, thus establishing itself as a mecca for skiers and snowboarders alike. Set in a high, flat-bottomed valley in the Graubünden region of the Swiss Alps, Davos shares its slopes with its famous neighbour, Klosters, offering an incredible 320 km of magnificent ski runs. Being a city, Davos is bigger than most ski resorts with a wide choice of bars, restaurants, luxury ski chalets, hotels and apartments.

Davos has two main centres, Dorf and Platz, which are approximately 2 km apart. Dorf is better placed for accessing the slopes whilst Platz offers easy access to the sports facilities, shopping and nightlife. Davos is well-known as the leading conference centre in the Alps, hosting the World Economic Forum in late January, which attracts over 3,000 delegates every year. As you can imagine accommodation gets booked up well in advance during this period so it is important to plan ahead if you are looking to stay in a luxury chalet at this time of the year.

With vast and varied slopes you can ski a different mountain every day

Davos-Klosters has four mountains - Parsenn, Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn and Madrisa - all easily accessible via lifts, cable cars and funicular railways. Linking Davos to Klosters, Parsenn offers runs for all abilities as well as one of the longest runs in Europe. Snowboarders and freeskiers tend to head to Jatz Park on Jakobshorn which is home to one of Europe’s largest superpipes whilst Madrisa and Rinerhorn are excellent for ski-loving families.

Non-skiers will not be disappointed by what Davos has to offer. The city has excellent sports facilities including Europe’s biggest natural ice rink, a leisure centre, bowling-bar-bistro, and a climbing wall. There are plenty of attractive walks to enjoy, romantic horse and carriage rides around the enchanting valley and tobogganing on Rinerhorn and Schatzalp. Late December sees the world’s oldest and most renowned ice hockey tournament, the Spengler Cup, take place and in February the Sertig Classic cross country race attracts a number of competitors and supporters.
