I flew down to Zürich and took a train to get into the mountains of Graubünden - a lovely, picturesque ride which got me straight into the winter mood. The next morning I got up early for the Early Bird skiing in the Parsenn ski area with my guide Beat, an activity which is part of the free Davos Klosters Inside Program:
Beside skiing I visited the igloo village and had a behind the scenes look of the slope and rescue service before enjoying dinner at Damoro restaurant in town. After a very active day we went to see an ice hockey match of the HC Davos the following day and got to ice skate at the Eistraum ice skating rink of Davos.
The second ski area we got to experience was the cozy Rinerhorn with its slopes running through the forest and its great huts e.g. Spina. Later that day we even went for some night sledding combined with a pasta dinner - a true adrenaline rush!
To experience the magical winter landscape Davos Klosters has to offer off the ski areas our guide André took as to the Sertig valley to go snowshoeing and to see frozen waterfalls...finished by another tasty dinner at the Pöstli Grill to charge up for the next ski area.
The Pischa mountain is the most relaxed of all ski areas and the perfect place to go fat biking. We gave it a try and wanted more adrenaline rush, so we switched to airboarding and raced down the pischa mountain in no time. Highly recommended!
We finished this trip at the Jakobshorn with a visit to the Jatzhütte, a hut popular for its legendary parties…and the highest hot tub in Europe - just the right spot to enjoy a last view of the magestic alps before heading back home.
