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 01-Mar-2017)
Monday 27th February was a mostly stable and spring like day in Switzerland. Last week’s snowfalls have lightly refreshed the pistes and current on snow conditions are very enjoyable, although far more spring like then we would normally expect for February. Clouds will increase later this evening as Switzerland heads into a week of much needed snowfall. Tuesday will see widespread moderate to heavy snowfalls at all of our featured Swiss resorts. Expect powder and storm skiing conditions to remain all week before another round of heavy snowfalls over the weekend.
European Weather Outlook
It is set to be a complicated week for The Alps. Much needed heavy snowfalls will start late on Monday (27th) night and remain all day Tuesday, tapering off by early Wednesday morning. The heaviest snowfalls will be in France and Italy, but no matter where you are skiing in The Alps there will be fresh snow. Strong winds at altitude are forecast, so some ski areas may experience limited lift operations at times. It will be an excellent but challenging week of skiing ahead for the Alps in what can only be described as varied and complex season so far.
This weekend may see another round of heavy snowfalls, mostly on the southern and eastern sides of the Alps. Check back Thursday for a more comprehensive overview of upcoming conditions.
Elsewhere, snow is expected in the Pyrenees on Thursday, but not as heavy as what we will see in The Alps. Tuesday will see light to moderate snowfalls - Not enough to call a powder day but certainly enough to make on-piste conditions excellent.
Further north in Scandinavia, another typical weather week lies ahead. Light snow falls and fairly dull overcast skies will be the dominate feature. Temperatures will remain slightly below freezing creating most soft snow conditions.
