On 1 November 2024, the 20,000 cubic metre pile of snow covered with sawdust will be transformed into a four kilometre long cross-country ski trail. No wonder: Davos is one of the pioneers in snow farming. By covering it, about 70 to 80 percent of the snow volume is preserved. This guarantees an early start to the cross-country skiing season regardless of the temperatures in autumn.
In addition to the Swiss cross-country skiing cracks, national teams from over 12 nations train on the Snowfarming trail in Davos. No wonder, the track with its ascents and descents is exactly what top cross-country skiers are looking for just before the start of the season.
To ensure that both top athletes and amateurs can train satisfactorily on the trail, there are times of use with time windows for all performance groups. We ask you to observe these. Teams and private individuals can use the snowfarming trail. Athletes who wish to train competitively during the defined time windows must register online in advance.
Anyone who buys a Snowfarmingcard ticket will receive a numbered cape, colour-coded according to the level of proficiency and group of use. This is personal and non-transferable and must be worn on the trail. This so-called "permanent bib" (cape number) must be returned to the inspectors on site at the end of the snowfarming. We charge CHF 50 for each "bib" that is not returned.
Snowfarmingcard as well as day tickets can be purchased online or directly at the cash desk on the snowfarming site. Online tickets must be exchanged for coloured wristbands or "bibs" at the cash desk on the snowfarming site. The coloured wristbands must be worn visibly on the left arm afterwards
