“Parsenn, which links Davos and Klosters, is the cradle of skiing in Switzerland. In 1895, four English tourists lost their way on the Weissfluhjoch and ultimately landed in Küblis, thereby discovering the 12 km-long Parsenn descent - an Alpine myth was born. Since the opening of the funicular railway over 80 years ago, Parsenn has become the classic skiing mountain with endless descents on wide slopes and stylish and traditional mountain lodges - as shown by the Parsenn Derby, the oldest ski race in Switzerland. The Parsenn ski arena can be reached from Davos using the Parsenn funicular railway and from Klosters by the Gotschna cable car.”

“As of December 2014, winter sports enthusiasts can take advantage of the new, state-of-the-art tributary cable car from Davos Platz to Jschalp. At the top of the mountain, daredevils will find the “JatzPark” with four runs featuring 20 elements such as kickers and rails. At the foot of Jakobshorn, in direct proximity to the Bolgen ski lift, you will find another freestyler highlight: a superpipe. Relax on the sun terrace and enjoy a good meal, dance to the sounds of international DJs or cool off in the whirlpool – that is what Jakobshorn is all about. An adventure mountain for an up-for-it crowd and true aficionados.”

Trail
“The magic mountain Those seeking the slower pace of stylish traditional winter sports will find it on the 'magic mountain' high above Davos. Skiers are handed their t-bar personally here against a background of traditional Swiss music. After a comfortable ascent of the mountain, the slopes fall away gently. Skiing as it was in years gone by, whilst experiencing nature. Thanks to this cultivated charm, Schatzalp/Strela is the first 'slowed down' skiing region of Europe. The Schatzalp - at an altitude of 300 metres above Davos - is the starting point of the classic toboggan run to Davos Platz, about which even Thomas Mann wrote in his novel "The Magic Mountain."”
