K

losters has been made famous by it's connections with the British Royal Family, but it is actually a pleasantly informal village with good local amenities and access to the fabulous Parsenn mountain it shares with Davos, as well as the family-friendly Madrissa pistes. There is plenty of off-piste and a long season, plus faster road and rail connections than Davos - although you can take the train round to Davos or ski over to get to the other four mountains there. Despite the relative accessibility of much of the off-piste, it is often not as safe as it looks. An avalanche in 1988 which killed Prince Charles’s equerry on Gotschnawang was led by an experienced guide.

Best of the Slopes

There is a 12km run from the Weissfluh peak, 2844m to Küblis at 810m. The run off Madrissa into the village is also almost 9k in length and drops 1500m. Also a 1km drop on the 7k run off Gotschnagrat.

Where to Eat and Party

As Alistair Scott noted in his 1989 ski guide to Switzerland, "most of the smartest apres-ski in Klosters takes place behind closed doors in private chalets. However Gaudy's at the foot of the Parsenn is a good spot to round off a day on the slopes. Most nightlife is centred on the hotels. The upmarket Walserhof (+41 81 410 29 29) is probably the best place to eat in town.
