The Swiss Ski Company

Skiing in Klosters - Graubünden ski region One of Switzerland's premier resorts with around 300km of prepared pistes

The magnificent high Alps that surround Davos and Klosters offer skiers of all levels a wealth of opportunities in a ski area that covers over 300km of prepared pistes and ample ‘off piste’ skiing. Just look at the choice available on the ski maps. Another advantage of this area is that the journey from Zurich airport is only about 2½ hours - ideal for a short break as you can leave the resort for your homeward journey in the late afternoon, giving you extra skiing on the final day of your holiday.

Klosters itself offers a chic charm, with idyllic wooden chalets and smart boutiques in the village centre. A destination of understated luxury.

Ski runs

Five large areas spread out on either side of Davos with around 300km of prepared pistes headed by the Parsenn. The Parsenn is also the main ski area for Klosters, which is also well placed for the south facing slopes of Madrisa at 2,602m. Whichever area you choose to ski, one lift pass will cover you for all of the areas in both Davos and Klosters.

The Parsenn (Davos & Klosters) This is the largest ski area and is reached by a two stage funicular from Davos, where you can start your day’s skiing or take the further funicular to the Parsenn itself. There is a speedy six seater chair lift from the middle station up to the Weissfluhjoch at 2,680m. From Klosters the Parsenn ski area is reached by the Gotschna cable car from the centre of the village. From the top of the Weissfluhjoch funicular there’s a wide choice of superb runs down five different valleys for the intermediate skier. The black runs over the moguls from up at the Gipfel at 2,840m above the Weissfluhjoch offer more of a challenge. The 12km piste down to Kublis starts at the Weissfluhjoch or Gipfel and descends over a variety of terrain until you reach the Schwendi in the woods where there are two beautiful, rustic mountain restaurants where we can recommend the rösti. This is a superb long run, although not particularly difficult. From the Schwendi it’s about 1km to ski down to Schifer for the gondolas that bring you back up to the Weissflujoch. At the end of the day you can ski the 4km back to Davos. There’s also a lovely ski run back to Klosters at the end of the day. A superb ski area that you will return to again and again during your holiday, with several mountain restaurants and lively snow bars.

Madrisa (Klosters) Beautiful south facing slopes situated above Klosters and reached by gondola. This ski area is ideal for beginners and intermediate skiers with wide and open runs, several restaurants and lively snow bar. From the summit at 2,602m there is a beautiful long 4km run down to the Zugenhüttli chair lift. The Klosters ski school nursery slopes are situated close to the top of the gondola. There’s a ski run back to Klosters but if you are a beginner then we suggest you come down by gondola. A new 6 person chairlift replaces the Schaffürgli T bar lift.

Après ski

Taking the ski run down into Klosters will bring you directly to Gaudy’s Graströchni, where they serve a selection of drinks from coffees to shots, guaranteeing a lively atmosphere. Klosters is a quieter resort but there is a choice of nightspots whether you fancy dancing or a cosy stübli or piano bar with a casual ambience. The Casa Antica is a lively venue later in the evening, or you could have an evening of bowling with friends, or even try curling at the ice rink. A horse drawn sleigh ride from the village could be a romantic highlight of your trip.

For a wider choice of lively nightlife, neighbouring Davos is for you.
