Snowsports In Davos

Davos has good snow reliability due to its altitude and not too many slopes face directly South. There are also several snow guns to ensure good conditions over low snow periods. The pistes are kept immaculately except perhaps fo the longer runs down to the valley.

Although there is a good and very easy blue run close to the main chair list for beginners Davos is most suited to Improvers to advanced skiing and boarding. The 320km of piste give the week long skier plenty to explore. Planet also offer the possibility of guided off-piste and heli skiing in Davos.

Planet Ski Holidays offer a superb instruction programme in Davos with highly experienced UK instructors and guides. See our Ski and Snowboard Centre pages for more on this. 

Cross Country Skiing: There are around 110km of cross country skiing trails as well as 157km of  walking trails which are very popular with locals. 

Not to be missed is tobogganing on one of the five sledge runs between 2.5-8.6km long.
