Dear All,

The idea would be to do some spring skiing in Davos, known for World Economic Forum, but also for its great ski runs. There are various areas to go skiing, i.e. Parsenn, Jacobshorn, Rinerhorn, Madrisa and Pischa and not to be forgotten Davos is connected with Klosters skiing area. There are blue, red, black, off-piste and also a number of marked non prepared ski pistes which are worth exploring. Of course one can also do snowshoeing, sunbathing at the chairs (assuming there is sun) etc.

We would be staying at the Jacobshorn hostel, situated at 2600 meters above sea-level. From here you can see the sunset and not unimportantly you will be the first one on the slopes given that this hostel is the top of the cable car where all skiers arrive.

It is important to note that, as it is typically the case in mountain resorts, that the last cable car goes up the mountain at 4pm so you need to take that cable car otherwise you will no longer make it to the top and have to find accommodation in Davos. Given that the train from zurich to Davos take 2 hours and a bit, you probably should leave at the latest directly after lunch or as I will do first thing in the morning to maximize skiing.

There are 86 beds in the hostel spread over 17 rooms, typically rooms of 4 to 8 people. It is recommended to bring your sleeping bag along.

The price for 2 nights accommodation, 3 days ski pass (friday- saturday and sunday), breakfast and dinner (excluding drinks) is 265 swiss francs. I have made a reservation for 15 to 25 people which I need to confirm in the next 10 days. Therefore it would be great to know your feedback by february 17 (next sunday) so that I can finalize bookings. Payments would then need to be made to by February 20. In case there is limited or no interest, I will cancel this event.

Please note that I do not want to find myself in a situation where I need to sign a contract and make payments for x people, and then some of you do not show up or have not made payments. By clicking yes on this event, you have shown interest in this activity and payments become due.

As always, if you can-t make it, there will be no refunds however someone else can take over your spot.
