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 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.

BMW-xDrive-Skimovie-Ski- & Boardercross

On Jakobshorn, you can not only do your own thing on the piste but even create your own ski movie. The BMW xDrive Skimovie Slope is located adjacent to the Clavadeler Bubble chairlift. All you need to do is go into the starting hut, register your ski pass on the turnstile, wait for the starting signal and enjoy your descent. In the finish area, you’ll be able to read your best time. As a holiday souvenir, you can watch your Skimovie online, download it and even forward it to your friends. In addition, you can take part in the BMW xDrive Cup and win attractive prizes. Every month, limited edition skies from the BMW and K2 collections are raffled off. And at the end of the season, you can even win a BMW car.

The Davos Klosters region is well-known as a fantastic freeriding area. But take care! If you leave the marked pistes, you enter a zone at risk of avalanches. Keep track of the current avalanche situation and get the latest information in advance from the Swiss Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research: www.slf.ch.

The new Jatzhütte

What started about 30 years ago, it is an institution today. Who is thinking about Davos and ski huts, there is definitely no way skirting the Jatzhütte, as it is really the original. 1988 Kudi and Barbara Bachmann were way ahead, when they started this adventure with the Jatzhütte. Nowhere else you could find a palm tree on the mountain at that time, sunbeds, whirlpools and parties. Après-ski on 2’530 m elevation was born and the Jatzhütte became famous national and even over the border.

New outfit of the Jatzhütte
Since winter 2016 the Jatzhütte is remodelled and represents a new style.  The unique ski hut is completely rebuilt and you will be hooked about the generous, modern, but also rustic and charmy ambience with a lot of wood.
You can already look forward today for drinks, food, whirlpool, DJ’s, dancefloor and a lot of fun – and certainly the legendary Kaffi Sex.
