Klosters

Klosters Ski Holidays Switzerland

Although Klosters has acquired international renown on account of the regular presence each winter of members of the British Royal Family; it remains at heart a quiet, charming farming village with sophisticated international appeal. Visitors can expect to experience a unique combination of a renowned mountain resort and the idyll of an unspoiled Graubünden village. A year-round population of just 3,000 people who are mainly farmers during the summer months, makes for a traditional town full of authentic Alpine charm.

Small and quaint, you can reach anywhere in the Klosters Platz village centre on foot in just a few minutes, making it the ideal destination for couples or families looking for an easy and relaxing week away. In fact, Klosters is now a member of the collection of resorts bearing the 'Families Destination' quality mark.

Klosters accommodations

Accommodation

Skiing

Klosters has skiing to suit all abilities and can be explored using the Rega CHECK ski pass which covers all the areas in the Davos-Klosters region; amounting in total to 58 lifts and almost 251km of pistes. From the Gotschnagrat summit at 2,285m you can ski back down to Klosters itself on red or black runs, whilst the more advanced skier will enjoy the exciting off-piste routes back. Some of the most scenic skiing is to be found on the Klosters side and can be accessed via the modern Schiferbahn gondola.

Snowboarding

The Davos-Klosters region is a snowboarding Mecca, offering a host of fun parks, freestyle parks, two half-pipes and more. The area of Jakobshorn, in particular, is regarded as an ideal destination for boarders thanks to its 'JatzPark' featuring a variety of kickers and rails. For beginner boarders, there is plenty of gentle terrain to practice wide open turns and enjoy cruising whilst taking in the stunning surrounding scenery.
