Madrisa: the family-friendly mountain resort in Klosters

With barrier-free lifts and mountain restaurants, an adventure park for families and a range of fantastic sports activities such as ski tours, hikes and trail runs, Madrisa – the local mountain in Klosters – is a popular destination all year round.

There are few ski resorts that are as perfectly adapted for families with small children and people with disabilities as Madrisa. And no wonder: in the kids’ snow parks, Madrisa Land and Madrisa Park Klosters, there’s a special practice area. There are four magic carpets to carry the little skiers up to the top. For a little variety, kids can glide through the snow on special ‘fun riders’. And with a snowbike (available to hire from Intersport at the mountain station), you can ride down the slope sitting down, with your skis strapped on – perfect if you’re new to skiing. While the kids practice their first turns at the four practice lifts, parents can explore the ski resort, which boasts 31 kilometres of slopes. If there’s enough snow, the highlights of this resort include the 8.5-kilometre sledge run down to Saas and the winter hiking trails to Mässplatte and to Zügenhüttli.

Go on the hunt with your bow and arrow

Are you a good shot? Like to get out and about in nature? In summer, Madrisa offers a 3D course for archers – and anyone who wants to become one. Collect as many hit points as you can on the three-dimensional target figures. You can hire all the equipment you need from the Madrisabahn lift.

Seven

Stop for a drink at Kanonenbar

The rustic wooden huts at Kanonenbar are located at the end of the Madrisa slope or above the Madrisabahn car park. The bar is open all year round. Recommended drinks: the ‘Kanonen Kaffi’, home-made mulled wine, a warm shot called a ‘hot widow’ or just a hot cup of Ovomaltine.

Eight

Take a winter hike on Madrisa

You don’t need skis to enjoy the snow on Madrisa. How about a winter hike? Starting from the mountain station, there are two routes to choose from: either from the mountain station to Mässplatte or to Zügenhüttli. Sturdy footwear is required for these winter hiking trails.

Nine

Complete the Madrisa Trail

It involves running along a mountain ridge, but it’s not too extreme from a technical perspective: at around 54 kilometres and almost 4,000 metres in altitude, the longer route of the Madrisa Trail running event is one of the more challenging short ultra trails out there. Happy running!

Pay a visit to Madrisa Land

Whether you’re with your own children or supervising others: a visit to Madrisa Land is guaranteed to make their faces light up. And no wonder: in this kids’ adventure park, located around 1,900 metres above sea level, they can really let off steam bouncing, sliding, swinging and splashing around.

Discover Madrisa’s Kneipp facility in summer
