Luxury Ski Holidays in Davos
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 luxury ski holidays. Set in a high, flat-bottomed valley in the Graubunden 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-Klosters has four mountains - Parsenn, Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn and Madrisa - all easily accessible via lifts, cable cars and funicular railways.
Non-skiers will not be disappointed by what Davos has to offer either. 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.
In summer the resort doesn’t rest, with extensive outdoor activities on offer including golf and water sports.

Skiing in Davos & Klosters
At 1560m, Davos is the highest town in Europe with 320km of piste to explore thanks to the link with the smaller village-like resort of Klosters.
Davos and Klosters together offer six separate sectors, the largest of these being Parsenn. Accessible from both Davos Dorf and Klosters, Parsenn offers long, wide slopes and some fantastic off-piste terrain. It is also home to one of the longest runs in Europe (12 km from Weissfluhgipfel to Küblis.)
Whilst the Davos- Klosters ski area is not well known for its beginner slopes, the resorts do offer a few beginner areas with nursery slopes both at Bolgen (at the bottom of the Jakobshorn) and at Bünda near the base of Parsenn.
Klosters ski area in particular is a favourite with intermediate skiers with an extensive network of wide blue and red runs. Many intermediate slopes can be found around Parsenn however for less crowded intermediate skiing, Madrisa and Rinerhorn are both good alternatives.
The Davos-Klosters ski area has plenty of challenging terrain for advanced or expert skiers including some fantastic off-piste terrain as well. Experts will appreciate the black runs through the Meierhofer Tälli to the hamlet of Wolfgang, as well as the demanding itinerary routes to Klosters. The Pischa section of the resort is very popular with freeriders and is the starting point for many freeride tours.
There are few luxury chalets in Davos that have direct access to the slopes however there are great transport links in Davos to access the incredible skiing whatever your level.
