Klosters is linked with its neighbour Davos under the same ski pass; and additionally, the large Parsenn ski area is easily accessible from both resorts – albeit with the likelihood of queues from the Klosters side via the Gotschna cable car. The runs from Parsenn dropping down to Klosters tend to be steep and fairly demanding, with plenty of excitement in the form of moguls.
The only ski area accessible solely from Klosters is Madrisa, where lifts go up to 2,602m (8,537ft). Intermediate and beginner skiers have good options on these smooth, sunny slopes, and the snow cover here is also reliable.
Off-piste possibilities include long descents to Jenaz and Fideris, though some sections will need to be climbed. From here, skiers can go back to Klosters using the regular train service. Expert freestylers and snowboarders are well catered for with a superpipe, parks on Jakobshorn, and boardercross courses in several of the resort’s sectors, while there is a beginners’ area in Madrisa.
Around 45km (28 miles) of cross-country trails span out along both ends of the valley from Klosters, suitable for all ability levels. But cross-country skiing doesn’t stop there. A short ride over to Davos opens up a vast choice of more than 120km (75 miles) of snowy tracks.
The ski season in Klosters runs from late November until April.
