Skiing in Davos

  • Dec 9, 2012 · 6:15 AM

Dear All,

Suggest to go skiing in Davos on the Jacobshorn. This area has about 10 lifts and is OK for beginner and intermediate skiers. Lunch can be taken at any of the huts on the slopes.Skis can be rent next to the cable-car.

The idea will be to take the 6.37 am in zurich HB arriving at 8.55 am in Davos Platz, 9.00 am at ticket counter of Jacobshorn, 10 am hopefully at top of jacobshorn where we can go for a coffee before hitting the slopes.

Ideally you wear your ski clothes already, since as soon as we descend the train, we walk towards the cable car and start skiing.

This will be my first skiing of the season, so I am looking forward to bring myself back in shape and feeling again the snow.

Looking forward to it,

PS: If this is too early for some of you, you can also take a later train and join us at a later stage during the day.

    Thanks for organizing, Patrick!

    I'll be on the 18.02 train. Anyone else?

    Has anyone going skiing recently in Davos (i.e. last weekend?). Davos tourism is telling me that only a limited number of slopes are open (this also is confirmed on the website) whereas for tomorrow a good dump is expected.

      Just spotted the ski test area. It's at the mid mountain station at Parsenn. I had been looking at the top.

    hey all, may i ask you for one of your numbers, I will arrive an hour later. I was in laax today, and the snow was pretty sweet.

    I am in doubts - 3-30 from Luzern, so... may be I will not come tomorrow - 7 hours in the train - too much

    Have reserved space for our group. Given the time in the morning, I will not be there 30 minutes in advance. In case you are late just go to the front of the train (signs with meet up should be on windows), platform 9 (please check tomorrow to verify if this correct). You might want to bring along an old ski-pass or one of the neighboring resorts, alternatively you just buy a new one there.

    I think we should cancel this trip, since there is not enough snow --) Just kidding.

      you would be very surprised but after Flumserberg there was significantly less snow on the road. Defo it didn't snow so crazy in Graubunden as in Züri, but tomorrow also nobody should complain!

      Today was pretty sweet snow-wise - yet a bit cold... hope tomorrow more sunshine!

      Visibility was only fair today. It was -15c at the top of Parsenne, -7 mid-mountain. Plenty of powder, though.

    Patrick, meeting Sunday at 10am at top of Jacobshorn sounds good to me.

  • Elisabeth

    Great Patrick!!!
    Adam, I'm going with friends which whom I booked an apartment for whole season:) But if you are on Saturday there just let me know.

  • Patrick

    @Edgar, unfortunately on Dec 2 I am hiking in Pontresina so cant be at two places at same time. My skiing will really take off after Xmas and then I will go a lot, till then weekends are booked out with hiking trips, social activities etc.

    @ Elisabeth, as soon as we get out of train, we will go for ticket counter at Jakobshorn and get in the queue, so we could meet at 10am at top of Jacobshorn. You can send me a mail or sms to [masked] as well.

    November 21, 2012

  • Elisabeth
