Davos is set in a high, broad, flat bottomed valley with lifts and slopes on either side. It was one of the original mega-resorts, with slopes on a scale that few resorts can better, but the town centre is unattractive and suffers from bad traffic. However, Davos still offers super long runs, a wide range of slopes which means you can ski on a different one each day, and considerable off-piste potential to make it a brilliant ski resort.
With 110kms of advanced runs of which 65kms are marked off-piste runs, Davos is perfect for skiers looking for a deep snow adventure. The Brämbabüel (Jakobshorn) is the prime mogul basher and the long descents to Wolfgang offer tranquillity with a welcome lunch stop at the Kulm restaurant.
There are goos cruising runs on all five maountains that offer fun for intermediates of all levels. From high above on the treeline to Weissfluh, it is possible to descend over 2000 vertical metres down into and through wooded valleys to the alpine villages of Küblis, Saas and Serneus, offering a real sense of adventure.
The Swiss 'Snowsport School' has its very own nursery slopes at Bolgen and Bunda. From here beginners can soon progress to the wide runs on the Pischa and Madrisa ski areas or try the long blues on the Parsenn.
For small children there is a special Bobo Wonderland at Bünda and Bolgen. The ski school accepts children from 4 years and lunchtime supervision can be arranged (local supplement payable). There is a children's race and prize giving on Fridays with the Ski School.
Try the superb runs down from the Jacobshorn and through the trees. Freestylers are not going to be disappointed, there are two pipes and a boardpark on the Parsenn slope.
Large numbers of good bars and restaurants including The Postli Club, the Tonic Piano bar or the Cabanna club.
