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 :-)

Davos lift system

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have only skied the area once and that was over fifteen years ago although I actually stayed in Klosters. It was in January at the time of the World Economic Forum meaning that the lifts and slopes were mostly quiet.

I am considering going again although the trip will be next March if I go ahead which will be high season. It's a Freshtracks trip based in Davos. I did think that the lift system when I was there before was inferior to many resorts and I wondered if anyone has more recent experience? What is it like getting out of the town in the morning for example and are there any significant bottlenecks?

All information will be gratefully received.

@richjp,
I've been several times though the most recent was around 10 years ago so not much more recent than yourself.
It isn't the worlds most efficient lift system I'd agree, however when I've been in March (about three times ) the actual queuing hasn't been too bad though there have been queues. One of the things I would say is that one of the trips I did was with a SCGB off piste week and there is a lot to be done.

The lift system has been updated with better bubbles and chairs since then.

Will be fine.

@richjp, I was there in 2013 (I think) for the Parsenn Derby (mid March iirc) and didn't notice any particular problems.

Other than with the organisers cutting a 2m drop halfway down the race course. Shocked

I've been on a Freshtracks holiday in Davos. The hotel isn't particularly convenient for the lifts to the Parsenn area, so you have to get the hotel minibus. This was a bit of a faff, but once you get to the lift station there were no issues. It was quite fun finishing in Klosters some days then getting the train back.

Probably fine if you're not going in a busy period. I doubt March is true "high" season. We found both Davos and Klosters to be very antiquated, with few fast lifts and an astonishing number of very old lifts.

Didn't really detract from the skiing, but was very much shown up on New Years Eve (obviously a VERY busy day).

It was pretty easy to get from Davos to Klosters if you ski on that side of the mountain as they are seamlessly linked and the runs down to Klosters are very good.

We stayed in Klosters rather than Davos.

I love skiing off piste in Davos, however, if feel that are better places for resort skiing. I don’t like how the lift system is not connected. Those beautiful valleys between the lifts that make the off piste great, cut the ski area into individual pods.
