Snowshoeing in Davos Klosters

Do you like hiking and snow? Then you should go on a snowshoe hike. Especially in Davos Klosters, where snowshoeing is still almost considered an insider tip.

Snowshoeing is booming. Especially in Covid 19 times. No wonder: distance and activities away from the hustle and bustle are in demand like never before. And the best way to get to where the snow-covered mountains of Davos Klosters are at their most unspoilt is on snowshoes.  By the way, if you can walk, you can also snowshoe. Simply strap the snowshoes under your winter boots, take the poles in your hand and the adventure in Davos Klosters starts practically from the hotel door - from the summit tour to the leisurely hike on the valley floor.

Six tips for
Snowshoeing in Davos Klosters

One

Dare the summit tour on the Jakobshorn

This marked and secured snowshoe tour leads from the Jakobshorn mountain station past the Stadlersee lake up to Rossboden at over 2600 metres above sea level. The round tour takes about three hours. The two sections of the Jakobshorn cable car take you comfortably to the starting point - and back to the valley. Tip: After the tour, treat yourself to a drink on the sun terrace of the Sun Peak Restaurant.

The starting and finishing points are easily accessible by public transport. Two new routes have also been added in Klosters: the 3-Village Trail and the Alpenrösli Trail.

Visit Pischa. And do it with snowshoes.

The Pischa cable car transports you comfortably up to 2500 metres above sea level. From here the snowshoe tour starts down over snow-covered slopes and at the end through the snow-covered Swiss stone pine forest back to the valley station. Those who like it sporty can also do the route uphill. By the way, you can rent snowshoes directly at the Pischa valley station.

Marked routes

Safe and sound – go snowshoe trekking on the following marked routes:

Wildlife areas & wildlife reserves

The unexpected appearance of a freerider can be problematic for wild animals in winter: an escape costs a lot of energy, which is then lacking to survive. Four simple rules help.

Freeriders are happy about a lot of fresh snow. For wild animals, on the other hand, this means one thing above all else: a naked fight for survival. Because what deer, deer, chamois and ibex normally scrape out of the snow to eat is now under a thick blanket of snow. Wild animals are therefore forced to use their energy sparingly. If they are disturbed and forced to flee, their survival is at risk.

4 rules while being out there

  • Respect designated wildlife areas and wildlife reserves
  • Stay on paths and marked trails in the forest
  • Avoid forest edges and snow-free surfaces
  • Keep your dog on a lead, particularly in the forest
