Davos Resort Info
One of the first spots in the Alps to be used as a skiing venue and also a 'health' spa, Davos is a large, outstretched town 1 ¾ hours from Zurich by car or 2 ½ hours by train. It has access to 325km of pistes and is linked to Klosters. As a whole, there is something for every type of skier, although beginners don't fair as well. Intermediates have lots of long blues and reds to exploit, while advanced skiers have some good off-piste. The snow is generally good at the higher levels and some fantastic off-piste. What the town lacks for in charm, it makes up for with its fantastic variety for skiers and boarders alike and with the new Parsennbahn railway, access to the slopes is quick and easy. For boarders the off-piste is a major attraction, as is the designated park. Cross-country skiers also have much territory to cover.
The town itself, split into 2 parts, Dorf and Platz, doesn't possess the charm of Klosters, but life off the slopes is lively with 5 nightclubs to choose from as well as lots of bars and restaurants. In addition there are many other things to do apart from skiing. You can take a scenic train ride, use the largest natural ice rink in Europe, visit the winter sport museum, or watch an ice hockey match. On top of that are the great shops and excellent restaurants (on and off mountain).
It is expensive and fur coats abound, however, it does cater for all - if you can afford it.

Snow Overview - Switzerland (snow news updated 15-Apr-2014)
Most Swiss resorts remain open this week with good spring skiing higher up. Saas Fee (38/328cm) was almost entirely open on Monday 14th April except for a few lifts on wind hold. Head above 2,500m for the best snow, but this isn’t to say that skiing beneath that is bad. If you like skiing slushy snow then you’ll have a great time.
St Moritz (20/140cm) remains open too, although skiing is only possible in the Diavolezza and Corvatsch areas. Lower areas are quite bare now but they’ve kept some runs open still. Further up it’s much better.
Colder weather is on the way for Switzerland later this week which could bring some fresh snow with it.
European Weather Outlook
The weather this week across the majority of European resorts is for mostly sunny weather before clouds build on Easter Sunday. Any snow that does fall next week will be on the higher slopes as the freezing level will be around 2,500m.
Austria is the exception though as cloudy skies are expected to dominate this week. The good news is that the freezing level could dip down to below 1,500m this week so fresh snow could fall. Next week will see it climb back above 2,500m and the precipitation will be mostly wet.
