Full review

The slopes are divided into 5 non-connected areas; one has to take a bus or a train to get from one to another. Three of these areas are small and can be easily done in a half-day each; only two main areas are worth staying longer time: Jakobshorn and Parsenn. Runs are mostly blue and red, suitable for a beginner/average level. There are very few black runs - an advanced/expert skier will be most probably bored after 2-3 days. Lifts are mostly old-fashioned and slow, one needs to spend quite some time to get from one place to another. Connection between various runs is mostly via long and boring blue/green traverses. Prices - both in town and on the slopes - are by far the highest we ever encountered in Europe. The town of Davos is quite ugly; Klosters has a nicer character.
