Davos is a town in the Swiss Alps, within the canton of Graubünden. It’s a popular ski resort with a conference center that hosts the annual World Economic Forum. Downhill and cross-country ski areas include Jakobshorn, Pischa, Rinerhorn and Parsenn. Summer activities include swimming and sailing on Lake Davos, hiking and mountain biking. The Glacier Express, a scenic train ride, connects Davos to the Matterhorn.
The longest marked piste is 15 km, longest off-piste is 24km. There are 13 marked but unprepared and uncontrolled off-piste runs, 140 off-piste tours of various difficulties from advanced to expert and the regional day pass includes all mountains, all buses in Davos and Klosters and trains between Kublis and Glaris. The most advanced skiing is off-piste with a few day tours without walking and unlimited non-walking powder skiing between pistes and resorts. A guide is essential.
Davos/Klosters has 3 in-town beginner areas and several tree runs which are open in the worst weather making it skiable every day of the season. The trail/piste maps are too big to be displayed with only the main ski area of Parsenn/Gotchna listed. The 7th mountain, Shatzalp, is open for skiing with access via a mountain railway from the middle of town or from Hauptetälli on Parsenn through the gallery (only with a guide) with a double chairlift and 2 surface lifts. A separate ticket is necessary to use the facilities on Schatzalp. Pischa is a free-ride mountain with cable-car access, with the rest of the south facing slope left as natural snow for learning to ski and ride powder. There are also 6 advanced off-piste runs to the valleys on all sides from 6 to 12 km long with bus access back to the cable car or town.
