Klosters, a renowned winter resort nestling in the beautiful Prättigau valley 1200 metres above sea level, still retains the characteristics and charm of a typical Swiss village with its chocolate box Chalets and traditional farmhouses.
Klosters links with the Parsenn ski area of Davos and the Destination Davos Klosters boasts 6 mountains and 300 km of pistes spread over about 85 descents. There is fantastic skiing for all levels on well prepared pistes, some of the best off-piste and touring to be found anywhere in Europe, excellent free riding and snowboarding mountains, extensive cross-country trails and for the non-skiers there are plenty of winter walking paths, snow-shoe trekking, toboggan runs and horse-drawn sleigh rides and naturally wonderful facilities for skating, curling and ice hockey too! The relaxed and friendly atmosphere of Klosters is a great option for families and Davos Klosters bears the “Families welcome” quality label.
