Davos, and neighbouring Klosters, is spread over six separate ski areas, Parsenn, Jakobshorn, Pischa, Madrisam rinerhorn and Schatzalp-Strela. Combined, these places make up a ski system with 320 km pistes and 59 lifts.

If you like off-piste, then Pischa is the given choice and whether you decide to have a guide or not, you are sure to find some really top-class awesome runs. There is a yellow marked ski area here, indicating that it is monitored for potential avalanches, including blasting if required. Each valley runs bus connections between the different areas, so there is no need to worry about getting back home.

Davos has a history of having a great terrain park with well-shaped kicks and a large halfpipe. Everyone is welcome!

Soon I will go to Davos for the eighth time. The best part is that you can go both cross country skiing and alpine skiing. Perfect training combination. And so it's very snow proof. Best staying at Ameron Suisse mountain hotel. The breakfast is world-class.

Davos is known by most politicians as an international Almedalen, luxury hotel that you can get at a reasonable price compared to Åre, the resturants are just as good food but nothing in the family class. We went to the sports holiday week 2014 mostly because I read that you had safe guarded off piste areas and the kids wanted to learn it was a cannon week, the only negative was the liftsyst that felt like something from the old DDR very old in other words. Surprisingly many anchor lifts which we boarded skiers do not like. Good with free buses that went often between the systems.
There were few off piste riders here which contributed to high ratings. However, there are better places like Zermatt, Engelberg and Andermatt.
Here you should go if you like luxury as well as outsourced off piste leader.

Lovely alp city with access to 5 (!) Different lifts. We managed to tweak two snowfall on our 5 days there and it was awesome days! The outfit was best in Pischa. Is that bad sight, driving under 2 seat lifts in Jakobshorn, really good ride!

Nice ski resort. Were there for the season in 2008 and had a lot of good riding and reasonably little competition for the off-piste. Lovely terrain from the Gotschnabahn - especially below the upper part of the cable car.
There could be more terrain that was in abundance, for much of the plant is far from being slaughtered (mostly Pischa and parts of all the other plants).
But the good thing is that you do not have to go far to get a bit off the beaten track!

Were in Davos / Klosters just before Christmas 08.

We went to Klosters, parked the car about 300 meters from the gondola track, took us efficiently into the system "Parsenn".

Great system. A big, nice o varied system. Large selection of slopes on two sides of Weissfluhjoch.
Especially nice off-piste yard was under the lift Schwarzseealp!

Please come back!

Absolutely Worst Skiing System I've Been! Have lived in Switzerland for 7 years and traveled to a lot of places in the Alps. There are almost no black pistes, transport distances everywhere! Old fashioned lifts and definitely not affordable.
No thanks, never again!

Davos has a range of skiing that suits everyone. As a city, it has the same diversity, just to find the little gold villages, you know where to go there are both afterski and nightlife.

Davos is wonderful. Orangery pillows do not have to go far to access. I thought best about Parsenn and Jacob's Horn, but perhaps it was mostly due to the weather. It was in March during the annual medical congress we were there, and despite that, there was no problem at all with the liftköerna. Aftershine was pretty cool but maybe it was because I was not in the right place or that it was the most doctor there. However, it cries with amateurs there, so once you can feel a little good, unlike how good you feel in Charmonnix ... hehe

Ps. Hospital staff may in some cases be unpleasant .. so try not to hurt yourself.

I like Davos! The biggest advantage is that nowhere is going to be offpiste. If you like offpiste, I think you should go to Pischa or Rinerhorn. System is quite small. Four-Five lifts. Not really falling altitude either. But there are almost never many people in the lifts and those who like carving ==> the powder is untouched for a long time. In Pischa, they also have the best kickers in Switzerland. They are always perfectly shaped with perfect landings. According to me, Davos Engelberg, Andermatt, Zermatt, Flims-Laax, Flumserberg beat. The village / town is quite sad and ugly. If you stay for a week, I would like to contact the tourist information and ask for apartments rented Saturday-Saturday. Cheaper and you can cook dinner at home = much cheaper. Will put up some pissed offpaste tracks that I like later. Send Fr-mail if you're wondering about something ...

Were week 7 with my family and a friend in Davos for the seventh time in my life. The reason we've always stayed there is simply because it's a great place! Davos consists of 5 large plants, Parsenn / Gotschna which are the biggest and in my smack the best, Madrisa, which I have never been to, Jakobshorn called the funmountain because there are many snowboarders and there is a fun park and a large halfpipe, Pischa, that's the quiet place with long nice slopes and Rinerhorn, which I've never been to. Here's how to say backs for all tastes .....
The offpiste is also amazing, even though I did not really try it properly. There is ALWAYS a lot of snow there and the village is also nice, though it's almost a city ...........
Because I'm only 15, I do not pay the trip, but I can say that it's quite expensive, but that's pretty much everywhere in the past.

Davos is all in all a superb place that I highly recommend!
