Snowfarming is over

The charged snowfarming service in the Flüela Valley has been discontinued again. Cross-country skiers can now once again enjoy an extended and free range of trails in Davos. Anyone who still has a snowfarming start number can return it to Hofmänner Sport, Flury Sports and Coaching, Bünda Sport or the indoor swimming pool in Davos. You can find more information about the cross-country trails in the trail report.

Snow farming is a key concept in snow management. We have been covering a mound of snow with sawdust every spring since 2008. This snow is used in the autumn to prepare a cross-country ski trail before new snow can be produced. Covering the snow means that we can retain around 70-80% of the volume, which enables the resort to start the season earlier, regardless of the temperatures in autumn.

Snow farming in Davos was extended in autumn of 2015 with the construction of a new infrastructure. Three times the volume of snow could be produced and stored during the winter of 2015/16. This over-summered snow is used in late-autumn to create a 4 km long cross-country trail in the lower Flüela Valley.

Flüelatal - Snowfarming Loipe

The 4 km long snow farming cross-country skiing trail open at Saturday, 31th October 2020 and can be used by both athletes and amateurs.

Teams and private individuals can use the snow farming cross-country skiing trail, although teams have to register in advance. They can do so by using the utilisation request form.
