Snow Conditions in Davos?

Hi, Has anyone been to Davos recently? If so I would be interested to know what the runs are like and snow conditions. We're not due to go until 24th - keep checking the webcams on the Davos site but the weather/snow reports don't exactly tell you a great deal about what conditions snow conditions are like i.e, icy in the morning, slushy in the afternoon etc. Anyone help? Thanks.

Try www.skiclub.co.uk (you might need to register as a user, but it's free). It's the website for the Ski Club of Great Britain, and they have rep reports for a lot of resorts...

Hope this helps!

2. Re: Snow Conditions in Davos?

I came back today from Davos. Conditions high on Jakobshorn and Parsenn are good - hard, powdery snow and lots of sun. Say from the top, till the middle stations those slopes are Good. Below the middle-stations the snow becomes slushy, watery and frequently you have to ski around open patches were there is no snow at all.

Skiing down into the valley from Jakobshorn is a path through forrest and very slushy, yet possible.

From Parsenn, the black run, although officially open doesn't even have snow all the way down - about 30m above Davos there is no snow at all anymore. Taking off your skis and walking the last 30m through grass& mudd is pretty depressing I can tell you.

They HOPE to extend the season till 22.April, although that is wishful thinking in my view.

So in summary: very good conditions close to the top (Weissfluhgipfel, Jakobshorn), good till about the middle-stations, below that it's plainly poor. So stay high on those mountains and you will have loads of sun, nice slopes with good snow conditions!
