Sat at 1560 metres altitude, Davos is a large town in the Canton of Graubunden which is linked to the prestigious neighbouring resort of Klosters
Open every year from the 3rd week in November to mid-April, the snow is Davos is practically guaranteed for your school ski tour, whether you are travel before Christmas, over New Year, at February half-term or over your Easter holidays. In 30 years of working in Davos, Ski Gower have never had to move a school ski tour to another resort or even bus a school to find snow elsewhere.
The combined resort of Davos Klosters features six different ski areas which include Parsenn, Jackobshorn, Rinerhorn and Pischa in Davos plus the Madrisa ski area in Klosters. The sixth aree is the separately operated Schatzalp ski area which requires its own lift pass and between them they offer over 300 kms of skiing.
Our skiers start their experience at the dedicated beginners area located at Bolgen, at the foot of the Jackobshorn mountain. Once proficient, the skiers then move to the Parsenn ski area which features wide, rolling pistes and also link Davos to Klosters. From the top of Parsenn you can take one of the longest runs in Europe, the run to Kublis, a small village further down the Klosters valley before returning to Klosters by train and then to Davos on skis.
Beginners can normally confidently manage the run from Davos to Klosters via the wide open pistes of Parsenn and the through the tree lined runs into Klosters. This is normally easily manageable by the end of their first week of tuition, giving them a great sense of achievement.
Once you have skied to Klosters, you can take a short bus ride and then ski the Madrisa area. Madrisa has a wide range of slopes from the dedicated beginners area which is open to all, as well as some challenging runs back to Klosters village.
Accommodation in Davos
Situated in Davos Dorf, just a 10-12 minute walk from the ski lift, our modern youth accommodation provides great 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.
Meals are prepared in the well equipped kitchen and each day includes an impressive buffet style continental breakfast of breads, cereals, fruit, meats and cheeses, yoghurt and juices so that 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, games and a conference room which can be used in the evenings free of charge.
There's plenty to do in Davos, ranging from swimming to bowling, and most are within easy walking distance of the Youth Palace.
