Wakeboarding on Lake Davos started life as a crowdfunding project. Now it's a firm fixture on the summer programme: the season runs from 1 July to 28 August on Lake Davos.
A slight pull on the arms – then a sudden, strong jolt that catapults the wakeboarder into the lake. A splash and a spray of water. Soaked. A beginner’s first ride ends just a few metres after it begins, which is all part of the daily routine at standard wakeboarding facilities. Things are different on Lake Davos. With its 190-metre-long cable system, the Wakeweeks Davos cable tow is one of the longest water ski lifts in operation.
Wakeboard season runs until 28 August
Another special feature is its clever two-tower system: the constant upward pull of the cable makes boarding easier. And both beginners and professionals alike value the fact that there is only ever one boarder on the water at a time. The lift operator can also adjust the speed to suit individual riders. If you now feel like wakeboarding on Lake Davos, you have a good two months to do so: The season runs until 28 August.
