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 09-Dec-2013)
A number of Swiss resorts opened over the weekend, either for weekend riding or daily for skiing and snowboarding. This has increased the spread of resorts open for skiing in Switzerland although the conditions are overall similar; the snow cover is very good due to the excellent early season snowfall although it has been sunny over the last week and areas of high traffic are becoming polished. Expect good skiing on firmly packed runs, with the best conditions available on the upper slopes.
Saas Fee (25/275cm) reports the deepest snow base in Switzerland on their upper slopes, although Andermatt (37/200cm) and the Gstaad area (5/240cm) report over two metres of snow high up, while Zermatt (40/190cm) is not that far off two metres.
The skies are forecast to remain bright and sunny all week across Switzerland, with mid-mountain temperatures remaining around freezing.
European Weather Outlook
The sunny weather looks set to continue in Europe with France, Switzerland and Austria all expecting clear skies and dry days throughout next week. Temperatures could also rise to above 5C in some places.
While very little snow is expected to fall anywhere in Europe this week Bulgaria could receive light snow during the middle of the week in preparation for opening day at Bansko next weekend. There is also some much-needed light snow forecast for Oppdal in Norway.
