Davos is as close to a city ski resort as you'll get, and so you can expect as much to do off the piste as on it. The resort has two centres, Dorf and Platz, with the former better connected to the Parsenn ski area (and home to the first funicular train built for skiers) and the latter better connected to Jakobshorn and with most of the non-skiing activities. The skiing area is shared with nearby Klosters, and if you're looking to get even further afield then you can journey by car or train to St. Moritz and Arosa. Read more...
Davos's skiing proposition is impressive, at a high-altitude in comparison to most Swiss resorts. There are 320km of piste to explore, served by 53 lifts and at altitude ranging from 810m to 2845m, so there's plenty to keep you guessing for a full week or longer! Snowboarding in Davos is well known to be some of the best in Europe if not the world, and there are great snowparks and international free ride competitions as well as great areas for those looking to learn. Skiers are equally well catered for, and the wide range of pistes and off-piste, as well as ski schools and nursery slopes, means there's something for skiers of all abilities in Davos. The 123km of cross country trails make it a real destination for enthusiasts for the sport, and it's an added bonus that they're all free!
Davos can only be called a large town or city, and it has an urban sprawl that is unusual for ski resorts. What this means for those looking for accommodation, however, is a great variety on offer, and catered chalets sit alongside self-catered apartment blocks. Whatever size your group, however large your budget, there's something for you in Davos!
As a result of its size, your holiday fun need not stop when you come off the mountain, and restaurants and bars are on offer as well as great shopping, ice-skating, ice hockey matches and tobogganing!
