Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

Our holiday: Was making my way slowly accross the alps and decided to stop off in Davos. I only skied the Parsenn area.
Website :
Basics : Davos is in the North East of Switzerland. I drove there, but it has two train staions and is easily accessable from Zurich airport.
Lift system : There appeared to be a mix of lift types and ages. The main funicular from Davos to Parsenn has recently been upgraded, but the second stage of it hasn't. It was quiet when I was there, so there weren't any queues.
The terrain : The Davos ski area is split into 5 sectors. These aren't lift linked to each other, but there is good bus/train connectivity. The Parsenn and Jakobshorn are the main ones that have lifts from the centre of Davos.
The snow : Perfect powder
Off-piste : There is a fair amount of accessable terrain, but due to them not pisting the black runs of Weissfluhjoch the day I was there, I stayed in the "on-piste" powder.
The resort : I wasn't too impressed with what I saw of Davos. It is a reasonable sized town that is quite spread out.
Food :
Accommodation : I turned up at Davos without having pre-booked accommodation. The tourist office was shut, and I couldn't find an information board anywhere. I eventually found the youth hostel (not that easy) and stayed there. It was okay, but nothing great, and not particularly cheap.
Costs: A bed in a dorm room with breakfast cost CHF 63
Conclusion: Would like to go back for the skiing - could live without going back to the town
