One of the biggest ski resorts in Europe, there are 320kms of piste covering five different areas from Davos to Klosters.
Open every year from the 3rd week in November to mid-April means that the snow is practically guaranteed for your school ski trip, whether you travel before Christmas, over New Year, in February half-term or over your Easter holidays. In 30 years of working with Davos, we have never had to move a school ski trip to another resort or even bus a school to find snow elsewhere.
The beginners’ area at Bolgen, provides a safe place, out of the way of the main ski school runs, for the students to start their ski trip experience. Then higher up on Parsenn, the vast open spaces are a perfect progression for new skiers. These wide, long runs even go down to Klosters, so the students get the full experience of above tree-line skiing, above Davos, followed by the majestic rush of the trip through the snow-covered conifers down to Klosters itself.
Jakobshorn, which glares at you temptingly through the windows of the accommodation as the sun rises, is a haven for intermediates and experts. In any other ski resort that your school ski trip would go to, Parsenn and Jakobshorn would comprise of the whole resort. In Davos not only do you have both of them, but you can also explore the areas of Rinerhorn, Pischa and Madrisa, on the other side of Klosters.
Your students will get maximum time on snow for several reasons:-
Situated in Davos itself, just 12 minutes' walk from the ski lift, our modern youth accommodation provides great ski trip facilities for the students. All rooms have a shower and toilet and the students will share two, three, mainly four-bedded and the odd six-bedded rooms.
There are no complaints with the food as the continental breakfast is self-service and includes, breads, cereals, juice, yoghurt etc so the students can stock up the essential calories for the day. The packed lunch is made by the students from the breakfast buffet, so they only take what they will eat, and after a hard day on the ski slopes a four course dinner is provided.
The accommodation has Wi-Fi and some games and a conference room, which can be used in the evening free of charge.
So much to do here! And all within walking distance.
