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 06-Mar-2015)

Following the brief mild blip on Sunday, new snow has brought a return to some excellent powder conditions across Switzerland. The last of the snow was clearing through on Thursday morning, leaving behind sunny skies but also some very high winds, touching 100mph at altitude in the south of the country. Zermatt (30/270cm) was one of the resorts worst affected by the high winds, resulting in only 19 of the 54 lifts being able to run on Thursday 5th March. Saas Fee (90/310cm), St Moritz (65/154cm) and Flims/Laax (40/330cm) also suffered from high winds, with lift closures reported in the upper ski areas. Once the winds subside as is forecast, some great skiing will be on offer at these resorts. Lower winds and clearing skies resulted in some great skiing in the north of the country following loads of new snow. Davos (65/200cm) and Klosters (65/200cm) both have seen lots of powder and Ski Club Leader’s in both resorts have reported some fantastic off piste conditions. Similar reports have been coming out of the Bernese Oberland, particularly at Adelboden (58/130cm) following 27cm of new snow on Thursday and across the Jungfrau Region. Grindelwald (20/210cm) was the country’s snowiest spot, picking up 45cm of powder, with Murren (90/230cm) not far behind with 36cm of new snow. Sunny skies are forecast to take charge over the weekend so some amazing skiing should be on offer across the country, especially as the winds drop. The sun is expected to continue through the start of next week, with temperatures rising to a touch above freezing at mid-mountain level.

European Weather Outlook

A settled spell of weather is finally set to arrive in the Alps, bringing sunny skies, light winds and hopefully some great skiing weather. Temperatures are set to rise over the weekend, with freezing levels nudging above 2,000m. Therefore expect some softening of the lower and south facing slopes, but not too much snowmelt. It is certainly setting up to be a fantastic weekend. Bright sunshine is also expected for the Pyrenees, making a welcome change following the huge snowfalls during February. The freezing level is set to rise to 2,500m so again expect some spring-like conditions on the lower and south facing slopes. Very heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria, with possibly as much as a metre landing on the upper slopes. Some rain may fall on the lowest slopes on Friday, but with the freezing level dropping to 500m by Saturday, snow will again fall at all levels. The weather is then expected to clear on Monday – hopefully leading to a sunny week in which to enjoy the powder. Fairly mixed weather is expected over the weekend in Scandinavia, with the possibility of sunny breaks but also some rain/snow showers for all our featured resorts. More settled and bright weather is expected for the new week, particularly in Norway. The rollercoaster that is the Scottish weather is set to continue this weekend. Mild conditions are forecast to move in, raising freezing levels before they drop back down again on Sunday. Some new snow is expected, but this is likely to be limited to the upper slopes and it is possible on Saturday that rain will fall at all levels. High winds are also set to be an issue.
