Ski holidays in Klosters

Attractive village with great scenery and wonderful activities

Klosters shares its neighbour Davos' 300km of great skiing and the full ski area is available on one pass. Few resorts in the Alps boast such a dramatic panorama. Almost everywhere you look, the horizon seems to be pierced by jagged, snow-covered  “horns” – (Schwarzhorn, Bocktenhorn, Weisshorn, Scalettahorn and Tinzenhorn – the “Matterhorn” of Davos) most of them well over 3,000 metres. Take the cable car, which runs from the centre of the attractive village to Gotschna, and then onto Parsenn, the largest, most varied mountain. Alternatively, take the short bus ride to Madrisa, Klosters' own popular ski area, which has a relaxed atmosphere. Keen skiers can also take the scenic mountain train, included in the lift pass, to the slopes of Davos at Jakobshorn, Pischa and Rinerhorn - you are genuinely spoilt for choice. Après-ski is relaxed, with a few attractive bars and one or two nightclubs.
