Davos recommendations

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I am taking my boys for a couple of days skiing in davos in half term (not staying long as leaving my toddler behind) could anyone recommend good areas that are quite easy? We are not beginners (as you can see from all my questions on this forum!) but I'm much happier on an easy blue or even a green! We're not there for long and don't mind doing the same runs over again.
We are staying at the intercontinental but I think they have a shuttle to the main lifts. I wouldn't mind travelling out a bit further if klosters for instance is more suitable.
Also if anyone knows of any lockers in town as we could then leave our bags there on the last day and get the train straight back to the airport instead of wasting time going back to hotel ...
Thanks a lot

Some of the smaller areas may be best, Pischa, Rinerhorn and Madrisa. Problem is they are mainly T bars. Pischa is the nearest to your hotel. Also, they haven't had much snow so far so would depend on the conditions when you go.

Otherwise I would go to Jakobshorn which has a range of blue and red runs plus chairlifts.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Just to add, not sure about lockers but the Jakobshorn area is right next to Davos Platz train station.

@munchimo,
With Swiss rail you always used to be able to send luggage on in advance from the station to the airport.

The main Parsenn actually has some very pleasant gentle skiing but it maybe a bit more crowded than other areas.
Persoanlly I think the Rinerhorn has excellent skiing and some very gentle it is as pointed out above though a bit reliant on T Bars, pity the old Strela area is no longer on the go that had some lovely gentle skiing.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will look into them. We don't mind t-bars, so sounds good.

Davos Platz station has lockers and a manned luggage office, Davos Dorf just has lockers.

For easy skiing, I'd vote again for Parsenn - the pistes off Gruobenalp and Meierhoftäli chairlifts are nice and gentle.

Head to Klosters and Madrisa.

Nicer area and less busy.

Meierhoftäli is my favourite run for really getting a carving edge and letting rip. It doesn't appear to have been open yet this season though and had hardly any snow at Xmas this year Crying or Very sad

Gruobenalp is an easy area but the snow here is often poor/icy as it is south facing.

If you are staying at the Intercontinental there is absolutely not point in going to Klosters to access the Parsenn area via the cable car as it would be much easier to go straight up the Parsenn funicular to get to Gruobenalp. Only reason to go to Klosters is to access Madrisa - which would be worth a trip in my opinion (snow cover permitting)

Ooh, I really hate icy so I might avoid that!
