Set in the beautiful Prattigau valley, Klosters enchants visitors with its attractive buildings, traditional alpine atmosphere, long runs and impressive scenery. The resort is divided into the two areas of Klosters Platz, the main hub, and the smaller village of Klosters Dorf.
The resort is often thought of as an exclusive destination, made famous by the British Royal Family enjoying ski holidays in Klosters on a regular basis. Whilst there is no denying that Klosters has many upmarket hotels, the resort retains a friendly, understated Swiss charm.
Klosters is linked with the neighbouring town of Davos and together they form the Davos/Klosters ski area offering around 315km of pistes across five main mountains.
The scenic sector of Madrisa is Klosters’ own ski area and accessed by a gondola from Klosters Dorf. A cable car from the railway station at Klosters Platz takes you up to the Parsenn sector shared with Davos, and from here you can access the remaining three sectors Rinerhorn, Jakobshorn and Pischa.
There is splendid intermediate cruising terrain across all five mountains including some of Europe’s longest red runs. Especially pleasing is the seven mile Red 22 that winds along the back of Parsenn, before dropping through the trees to the hamlet of Kublis. Throughout the area, experts will find some satisfying blacks, exciting moguls and long open powder bowls. Madrisa is home to good lift-served off-piste itineraries which tend to be quieter than others.
Apres starts on the mountain at one of the atmospheric ‘Schwendi’ huts on the runs back to the village. In resort, Klosters has some fabulous restaurants but perhaps the most famous are the Chesa Grischuna established in 1938 and the Michelin-starred Walserhof. Later in the evening, apres gravitates to hotel bars with live piano music and cocktails before heading to the Casa Antica club.
