269 km slopes

The perfect experience for everyone

With 80 different downhill runs and other winter attractions, Davos Klosters Mountains has a lot to offer for winter sports fans. In addition to the pleasure of whooshing down the slopes, they can also look forward to plenty of culinary delights, cosy get-togethers, sunbathing, and après-ski.

A large selection of different slopes, from blue to black, is a convincing asset of Davos Klosters Mountains. For experienced skiers, we recommend the steep slopes on Jakobshorn Nord, Bräma (black/red) or Gipfel Nord on Parsenn. That’s where you can test and finetune your skiing skills.

Guaranteed snow from November to April: Thanks to the region’s elevation at more than 1,560 metres above sea level and constant investments in artificial snow-making equipment, skiers and snowboarders benefit from guaranteed snow from November to April. So nothing stands in the way of winter fun, and the slopes are always in tip-top shape!

Good to know: Every ski resort in Davos Klosters Mountains has a downhill run all the way into the valley. From Jakobshorn and Parsenn, you can ski directly to the town centre. It hardly gets more convenient! The valley runs are usually open from December to April when snow conditions are good, which means you can ski into the valley all winter long.

Freestylers will find a perfect terrain for adrenaline rushes at the JatzPark. Alternatively, they can live it up on the Big Airs and at the halfpipe on Jakobshorn. The Jakobshorn is the centre for all those who love freestyling!

Alongside perfectly groomed slopes for skiers and snowboarders, there are also several secured but ungroomed slopes, which can be used by freeriders when open. On Pischa, there are no groomed slopes on the entire mountain. This was a deliberate choice, so winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy their adventures in pristine powder snow surrounded only by nature.
