Arthur Conan Doyle - well orchestrated, Holmes
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is the creator of the heroic detective Sherlock Holmes. Doyle saw himself more as Dr. Watson - as a pragmatist. It was also with pragmatism that he approached dangerous ski tours - and heralded the ski sports boom in Davos.
Assuch, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a part of the skiing revolution. Together with the Davos locals Johann and Tobias Branger, he crossed the Maienfelder Furka from Davos. And only returned the next day. This ski tour and other ventures by the Branger brothers heralded the ski sport boom in Davos . In essay 1189, Doyle described skiing in Davos and thereby triggered the popularity of the holiday resort amongst British guests, which endures to this day .
