Skiing in Davos

  • November 24, 2013 · 6:15 AM

Dear All,

It is getting colder, the winter and snow is coming, and I would say that it is time to get the skis back out of the basement. I propose to go skiing for the day to Davos - although so far there are only limited number of runs open, it is good to practice your turns again on some blue/red slopes and gradually getting back in shape.

Everybody is welcome - we will take lunch at the Parsenn Mountain hut/restaurant around lunchtime.

The idea is to take the 6.37 am train arriving at 8.50 am in Davos Dorf, from there it is a 5min walk to Parsenn ski station, where we hop in the train and around 9.30 we start skiing. Late afternoon e.g. 4.30 - 5pm we take the train back towards Zurich.

PS- For those who do not have their own skis, these can be rented. There is a ski shop next to the lift where poles, boots, ski goggles or whatever you need can be rented/bought. 

Looking forward to blue skies, cold temperatures and great snow.

    Hi, I was wondering what is the best way to buy tickets for this event? I noticed SBB has Snow and Rail deal for Davos Kloster for 100CHF from Zurich with a 1/2 card. Is that the best deal?

      Your link didn't take me to the deal, but if it's a one day snow and rail to davos/klosters, that's what i will buy.

      Hi Alexei, that's the right deal for Davos Klosters.

      Hi Jessica, the Parsenn hutte typically is very busy at lunch time. To avoid the crowd we either go for lunch at 11.45 or 13.20 pm. Given that most people got up very early to catch the train 11.45 at the parson huette would be my preferred choice.

      Hi Patrick, fine. I'll be there at the entrance at 11:45 of the restaurant looking out for you all :-)

    Hi. I'll be in Davos Saturday as well, so will see you all Sunday outside the Parsenn ski station - carrying a blue pair of Salomon BBR's. Looking forward to some great skiing ;-)

    Hi Patrick, I'm new to the group and wondering what is the best way to find the rest of the group at Zurich train station or in Davos.

    November 22, 2013

    • Patrick

      We typically meet under the big blue weird angel (at the ceiling of zurich main station) next to ticket counter about 15 min before departure of train or.. you go directly to the train tracks. Our wagon (meet up) will be in the front of the train.
