About Davos

Davos is set in a wide, flat-bottomed valley at the foot of the Engadine and originally developed as a health resort due to the clean fresh air. Many of the sanatoriums which sprang up are still there, now transformed into plush hotels.

Now Davos is a modern, bustling resort with streets lined with restaurants and boutiques. There is so much going on, giving plenty to do for non-skiers. The town has two main centres – Davos Dorf and Davos Platz (where most of the action happens), and both have breathtaking views of Pischa and the Jakobshorn mountains.

The ski area is vast and varied. Davos links with the ski areas of Klosters, the royal favourite, which gives five mountains to explore over both sides of the valley. Although accessed separately, Firefly guests have the service of chauffeur driven 4x4s on-call to whisk them to and from their chosen ski area.

There is plenty to do for advanced skiers with over 300kms of trails and some of the best off piste in Europe but Davos really excels for intermediate skiers. All five mountains boast excellent cruising runs with some gloriously long, mostly easy, runs down to Klosters. There are several beginners slopes dotted around and even a designated ‘slow’ piste alongside the Parsennbahn.

For snowboarders, Davos is something of a Mecca. There are superb parks, tree-runs and freeride heaven on Pischa mountain, a designated freeride territory with ungroomed pistes.

Best places to eat and drink in Davos

The après ski scene in Davos tends to be fairly subdued although there is a wide choice of restaurants in town. There better restaurants tend to be in the hotels. There are a handful of sophisticated clubs. Cabanna in Hotel Europe is recommended.

Up the mountain, the Weissfluggipfel restaurant is highly recommended, with its superb food and stunning views over the Alps from Bernina to Säntis.

Best time to visit Davos

The ski season in Davos runs from early December to the end of the 3rd week of April.

Davos does have an excellent snow record and snow cannons tend to keep the runs open late into the season.

What we love about Davos

We love the excellent Davos Klosters ski area - wonderfully long, cruising runs down to Klosters and the numerous itinerary routes on ungroomed Pischa mountain.
