“Best slopes !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Very very pricy, but the best wide slopes. The chairlifts, the gondola, everything is in its best maintenance. Very nice mountain restaurants, but way too expensive. The shortcoming of this resort is: NO après ski. No bars with the usual après ski you get in the rest of Europe.

“Excellent skiing in the Swiss Alps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The Davos-Klosters Ski Resort offers skiing for all experience levels. The resort itself is separated into different mountains that are assessable by either lifts, bus or train. Most of the terrain is linked by trails where you can get back to where you started by the extensive lift system. I chose to stay in Klosters where a gondola takes you up to the top of the mountain.

Given the high altitude of the resort, the snow is pretty dependable. It had been snowing for almost a week prior to my arrival, so there was a lot of powder (and moguls) to play in. It is a wet powder, so not as soft or your typical powder skiing found in Utah. It still is fun to ski in, and much better than anything you'd find on the east coast of the United States. Also given the size of the resort, there are a lot of open areas and not so many people on the mountain. It is also nice that you don't have to fight to get on a lift, as they have an organized system of funneling people up the mountain. This is not necessarily the case at other European resorts.

I found Parsenn to have the best variety of terrain with powder, moguls and difficult slopes. The Rinerhorn section had the best groomed slopes. The Swiss also have it right when it comes to toboggan runs. The Rinerhorn ski hill also offers a sledding run that gos from the top of the mountain all the way down to the base. The hill snakes through the woods and is just like a ski run. There are also sledding runs at the other mountains.

There are also multiple restaurants/cafes on the mountains and at the base where you can have lunch or a drink. Many of these restaurants are also open for dinner when you have stopped skiing, but may require hiking up to which would be an experience in or itself.

Your ski pass provides free transport on the regional trains and buses. This makes it easy to jump from one section to the other. The buses run frequently and can be quicker than waiting on a train depending on where you are going.

Both Klosters and Davos offer cross-country trails. Klosters looked to have more scenic routes than Davos. The ski tracks are free and open to the public. The trails offer both freestyle and classic tracks.
