Ski area Davos/Klosters Mountains

Skiarea Davos overview

The "Davos Klosters Mountains" lift pass allows you to take advantage of absolute skiing enjoyment on around 279 kilometres of piste in the five ski areas Madrisa, Parsenn Davos Klosters, Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn and Pischa (excl. Schatzalp). At an altitude between between 810 and 2,844 m, pistes covering all levels of difficulty and 55 modern lifts provide a great deal of variety. In addition, there is the especially high snow security, allowing snow enjoyment into April!

A comfortable commuting gondola transporting 100 persons at once quickly takes you from Davos into the Jakobshorn ski area. A highlight is the 12 km long run from Weissfluh to Küblis with an altitude difference of 2,034 m! Furthermore, numerous first class freeride areas, illuminated pistes, and challenging black runs for pros are also to be found. Not only that, but the area is also a paradise for snowboarders: national and international competitions take place in the region's fun parks.

Especially worth mentioning is the Jakobshorn - a snowboard Mecca for years - with the Nidecker Monster Pipe. Floodlit half-pipes, kicker, rails and a boardercross with kicker can also be found in other areas - no wish goes unfulfilled! The Pischa area offers almost exclusively freeride terrain and is the largest of its kind in Switzerland.

On the easy pistes and practice areas at the Rinerhorn especially families will feel well-catered for. The broad pistes at Jakobshorn are very well suited for the whole family. At Bolgen at the foot of Jakobshorn, children can explore the fascination of skiing on a Disney-themed parcours in the children's ski school, while parents can enjoy the sun in one of the beach chairs. The children's area Madrise Land also attracts families with children.

The ski area offers about 20 Wi-Fi hotspots in mountain restaurants and gastronomical facilities. Is the Davos/Klosters Mountains ski area not right for you? Then have a look here instead: Ski areas Switzerland

Davos: Après ski

According to the motto "from piste to party" you can experience aprés ski and party when and where you feel like it! In the ski area itself you will already find many sun terraces and snow bars to get going and down in the valley there is an even larger selection discos, night clubs, bars and pubs which are the ideal basis for a fun party evening. Go and visit the Jakobshorn, for example and see the popular party place "Davoser Bolgen Plaza".

Also if you are not skiing or boarding there are many things to do organise an entertaining day: e.g. the activity pool complex "Eau-là-là" with spa area, the Fäbri sports halls with tennis and squash courts and climbing wall, 96 km of winter hiking trails, toboggan run, the world's largest natural ice rink with 18,000 m², paragliding, a riding hall, horse-drawn sleigh rides and so much more!

If you are rather looking for cultural input, there is also a cinema centre, various museums (winter sports museum!) and numerous restaurants with local and international specialities, as well as a lovely shopping promenade.

Fun park: Snowpark Jatz Park

Since the late 1980's the Jakobshorn is known as a freestyle Mecca, and therefore in 1993 the "Bogenschanze" was opened as a mere snowboarder's hotel. However the snow park and the SuperPipe are the real highlights at the Jakobshorn. The "Jatz Park" is located directly at the "Jatz Junior" lift and offers everything a freestyler's heart may desire. At 2,300 m altitude the park provides 3 different lines: medium jib line, medium slopestyle line and pro slopestyle line. Various kickers, such as the 18 m Big Air, wallride spine, tractor tyre bonk or rails, in form of elbow rails or a 6 m long straight pipe - there is something for everyone here and creativity can run riot.

If a perfect freestyle day has not ended with the park closure and you still want to go out and have fun, then the "Jazzhütte" is the best place to go. A jacuzzi and sun terrace, as well as regular visits by international DJ's are a guarantee for a great end to the day with the finest tunes playing.

A special highlight at the Jakobshorn is the 120 m long Monster Half-pipe at Bolgen im Tal in Davos. Every year in January the stars of the "Ticket-to-Ride" Tour present their skills in the "O'Neill Evolution" contest. Further, the great pipe can be used on various evenings to keep practising after sun down, with the flood lights on. Regular checks and maintenance work guarantees best conditions on the half-pipe.

Besides the mega freestyle paradise at the Jakobshorn there is also a smaller snow park at the Rinerhorn and one at the Selfrangalift, as well as a ski and bordercross run at Parsenn and Madrisa. So if you are on holiday in Davos/Klosters and looking for solid freestyle fun, you are absolutely in the right place here!
