Jakobshorn

Good vibrations on the freestyle mountain

As of December 2014, winter sports enthusiasts can take advantage of the new, state-of-the-art tributary cable car from Davos Platz to Jschalp. At the top of the mountain, daredevils will find the “JatzPark” with four runs featuring 20 elements such as kickers and rails. At the foot of Jakobshorn, in direct proximity to the Bolgen ski lift, you will find another freestyler highlight: a superpipe. Relax on the sun terrace and enjoy a good meal, dance to the sounds of international DJs or cool off in the whirlpool – that is what Jakobshorn is all about. An adventure mountain for an up-for-it crowd and true aficionados.

Freestyle: Jatzpark

Short, intensive runs in a compact, versatile and perfectly groomed park - this is what awaits freestylers at the renewed and expanded JatzPark on the Jakobshorn. Space was created to build the lines parallel to the lift. This allows us to offer four new lines: one line combined with rails and kickers for beginners and intermediate snowboarders, an intermediate rail and a professional kicker line. With these additions, the beginner, medium and pro lines at Jatzpark offers elements that are suitable for both beginners and professionals.

New: air bag on Bolgen

The playground on Jakobshorn-Bolgen has been expanded: 4 kickers, various rails and a 15x15 m large air bag are at your disposal – now you can practise every jump you’ve ever dreamed of.

Avalanche Training Centre

This Centre on the Jakobshorn, close to the Fuxägufer top station, offers training on the right use of an avalanche victim detection device (LVS) under realistic conditions. The training area contains a 100 x 100 m zone on a steep slope designed to replicate the conditions of a realistic avalanche.  Use of the training area is free to all holders of a valid ski pass for the lifts and cable cars. Please note that you should bring your own LVS and avalanche probe. The Centre is open every day during the operating hours of the cable cars and lifts.
