World through my eyes
“Premium Europe” chose Davos Klosters as the best ski resort in the Alps. A total of seven destinations were examined and listed in the “Definitive Guide to the Alps”. The destination leaves 6 more areas in the ranking behind. Premium Europe is an online luxury travel agency, which publishes the Alpine Guide 2014/15. In the current issue, the seven most beautiful winter sports resorts of the Alps are listed. The Destination Davos Klosters achieved the first place and thus is considered the best ski resort in the Alps. The destinations were thereby examined in the following categories: ski, ski pass, accommodation, restaurants, après-ski, offer for non-skiers and children as well as events.
Both Davos and Klosters are family friendly resorts and have dedicated children areas – or should we say paradises – at the top of Pischa and Madrisa where the younger ones can try the skis for the first time and improve their skills at the superb ski schools and gentle slopes. Intermediate skiers are also for a treat as most of the slopes in the resort are blue or red and the vast majority offer really long runs; some up to 10km long even! The blue runs of the Parsenn are very wide and allow skiers to practice their turns. While, the top black runs are located in the Meierhofer Tälli and the Gruobenalp valleys taking skiers down to Wolfgang/Davos Lake from where they can take either the bus, the train or the Parsenn funicular back to town. On the Rinerhorn, skiers can find a wide black slope taking them through scenic woods from Nüllisch Grat down to the cable car. Due to fact that the steeper slopes are on the valleys skiers should be aware that they are likely to come across icy conditions; this is particularly true of the black piste descending down to Davos.
December is a great time to visit Davos as the Christmas Spirit is at full swing in the streets and sport lovers can treat themselves to a hockey match of the always exciting Sprengler Cup. However with so many sport events organised throughout the season (Parsenn Derby, Ride the Night, etc.) it is fair to say that any time is a good time to visit and if you are travelling with children Easter is a must! The only month we highly recommend to avoid is January due to the celebration of the World Economic Forum.
