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 17-Apr-2015)

The Swiss ski season is really winding down and thanks to the recent warmth, the snow has been melting fast. Thursday 16th April brought more clouds than of late, heralding a change that is forecast to bring rain to slopes below 2,500m on Friday. Some of the best conditions in Switzerland are at Samnaun (35/190cm) and its linked ski area with Ischgl over the border in Austria. The resort is set to remain open into May and thanks to the great snowbase in place, this is looking likely. Some great spring skiing has been had in recent days here and expect more of the same over the weekend – possibly topped up by some fresh powder on the upper slopes. The upper slopes of Verbier (0/260cm) remain in good condition, although the return to the resort is becoming tricky with only one run open. The itinerary runs have developed some huge bumps so hit these slopes when the sun has melted through the overnight freeze for some slightly easier and softer turns. It is the last scheduled weekend of operation at many resorts, including Grimentz/Zinal (30/225cm), Davos/Klosters (19/185cm), Saas Fee (12/370cm) and Wengen (0/135cm). Some good skiing should still be found on the upper slopes this weekend, with the potential for a powder day on the upper slopes on Saturday.

European Weather Outlook

The mild air is set to remain over the Alps on Thursday before a weather front arrives during Friday, slightly lowering the freezing level. This is set to sadly bring some heavy rain to slopes below around 2,500m – although expect some local variations. By Saturday colder air should drop the snow level to around 2,000m but the precipitation is set to be lighter. On the upper slopes some good powder is very possible with up to 50cm of new snow expected at altitude during the course of the weekend. Rain is expected in the Pyrenees this weekend, providing a damp end to the ski season. Some powder is possible on the very highest slopes, but lower down more snow loss is expected. Glorious sunny weather is forecast in Bulgaria until Saturday, before the temperature drops significantly overnight in to Sunday, accompanied by some light snowfall. Expect warm and mostly sunny springtime weather in Scandinavia over the weekend and into next week. More clouds are expected in Sweden, with a little light snow possible although there is a good chance of some nice sunny breaks too. The clouds are set to clear from Scotland during Friday to leave a sunny and warm weekend –perfect for setting up spring snow conditions. This weather pattern is forecast to continue well into next week.
