Snow Reports

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...
Or: Register
(to be a proper snow-head, all official-like!)

A snowHead
(Who has registered and logged into)
Location: snowHeadLand
1. Resort: Klosters
2. Country: Switzerland
3. Domain: Davos-Klosters Mountains
4. Author: Whitegold
5. Date: Mar 2007
6. Our Holiday: Small group of couples
7. Website:
8. Basics: Southeast Switzerland. Around 150 mins from Zurich
9. Lift System: The lift system sucks. It is old, slow and disjointed. Lots of walking needed. Scorecard = 3 / 10
10. The Terrain: The onpiste is average. The steepest stuff is in Davos. 6 / 10
11. The Snow: Good snow. Everything was white, down to roughly 800m on northerly slopes. 9 / 10
12. Off-piste: The offpiste is plentiful. Like Lech in Austria, an older crowd means acres of pow go untouched for days. 8 / 10
13. The Resort: The town is attractive but not beautiful. Nightlife is almost nonexistent. 3 / 10
14. Food: There are few decent restaurants. It is one of the quietest stations in the Alps. 4 / 10
15. Accommodation: Most hotels and chalets are in the 2- to 4-star range. 6 / 10
16. Costs: Klosters is simply the priciest resort in the Alps. Costs are ridiculously high. But it keeps out the riffraff. 5 / 10
17. Conclusion: Klosters is overpriced and overrated. Just because Prince Charles goes there does not make it good. Only the huge, untouched powderfields are its saving grace.

Total Scorecard = 44 / 80 (55%). For comparison, Kitzbuehel gets 54 / 80 (68%).
