Skiing in Davos
Part of the Rega Pass skiing area has direct access to 320km of quality downhill pisted runs. The five main skiing areas have slopes suitable for all levels and perfect for group ski holidays. The popular Parsenn area has the largest skiable area, and acts as the gateway to lift-linked Klosters. All the skiing areas are accessible by train and bus, but once you reach a skiing area, your probably want to stay for the day. One hot tip for experts is to seek the 12km off-piste trail to Kublis. Blacks tend to be found at the base of the mountain below the tree line, although ski with caution as they get steeper at the bottom.
