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 21-Nov-2014)

Many of the Swiss resorts teams have been reporting light snowfall with the occasional large drop over the past two weeks so many resorts are really starting to take shape. Thursday 20th November saw plenty of sunshine and nice fresh temperatures across Switzerland. Winter is starting to make its mark as lots of resorts are opening for weekend skiing this coming weekend. Grimentz, Flims/Laax, St Moritz, Verbier, Wengen and Zinal are all planning on offering skiing this weekend. There are also resorts currently open for their full season but only up on the glaciers as they wait for more snow cover on their resort runs. Zermatt (10/160cm) is offering glacial skiing and had a total of 22 lifts in operation on Thursday to coincide with the excellent sunshine. The resort team are also reporting powdery conditions off the piste but do take care as you leave the glacier as there may be rocky patches with lighter cover. There’s good news for those planning on skiing Switzerland this weekend as lots of sunshine is being forecast so don’t forget to take sunglasses to enjoy the bright weather.

European Weather Outlook

Europe had an excellent day for weather on Thursday 20th November with all of our featured resorts across the continent seeing mainly clear, sunny skies with the odd patch of thin cloud. There has been plenty of snow falling over the past week so conditions are looking fantastic on the higher resorts and glaciers. If you are planning on a European skiing trip this weekend then you should be in luck as there is a lot of sunshine forecast for Saturday and parts of Sunday. On the whole it is generally quite cold as mid mountain temperatures are averaging a few degrees above freezing.
