A new, state-of-the-art gondola lift from Davos Platz to Jschalp will be available for winter sports enthusiasts to use from December 2014. The new aerial tramway greatly increases the level of comfort for guests and doubles capacity, making the Jakobshorn even easier to ascend – great news for visitors to the mountain, which is renowned for its range of restaurants and freestyle pistes. Daring souls can tackle the JatzPark, which features four runs with more than 20 elements including kickers and rails, and the superpipe at the foot of the Jakobshorn. Relaxing on the sun deck with a delicious meal, dancing to tracks spun by international DJs and cooling off in the whirlpool – this is what the Jakobshorn is all about. It’s the perfect peak for high-spirited people and lovers of great food and drink.
