Family fun: the Rinerhorn in Davos

A sledging trail with 33 bends and fast, steep curves, winter sports by night and a family ski area with ski lifts, free parking and cosy mountain huts. It’s no wonder the Rinerhorn is a favourite with locals and visitors to Davos Klosters alike.

Some things are simply more magical at night than they are during the day – as anyone who’s ever photographed the starry sky or looked back on their first romantic trysts would know. The same goes for winter sports on the Rinerhorn – gliding down the 3.5-kilometre-long sledging trail or the illuminated ski run to the valley is an even more intense experience by night than it is in the daytime. During the winter season, from mid-December to the end of March, you can do just that on Wednesdays and Fridays between 7:00 pm and 11:00 pm. If you prefer to leave your sledges and skis at home in the evening, why not take the gondola lift up to the Jatzmeder restaurant, where you can enjoy their spaghetti night (Weds) or candlelit dinner (Fri).

Twelve things
you won’t want to miss on the Rinerhorn

One

Winter sports – by night

During the winter season you can sledge and ski by moonlight two nights a week, between 7:00 pm and 11:00 pm. The perfect accompaniment to moonlit sport? Spaghetti night on Wednesdays, and candlelit dinner with raclette or fondue on Fridays.

Two

Had your fill of typical ski food? Head to the Hubelhütte!

Homemade rye bread with thick ham, cheese dumplings, or Tyrolean ravioli? The Hubelhütte on the Rinerhorn is known for its South Tyrolean specialities. It’s no surprise when you consider that the hosts are true South Tyroleans themselves. Our tip: freshly-made Kaiserschmarrn pancakes are always available from 2:00 pm. Yum!

Three

Get out the wide skis for deep powder

When there’s fresh snow, the Rinerhorn is perfect for deep powder skiing on signposted black and yellow freeride descents, which are safe and secure when open. The Leidbachtal black descent (no. 10) is a particularly well-kept secret in freeriding circles.

Four

Does sledging in the birthplace of skiing, Davos, appeal more by day than by night?

You don’t need moonlight to make the Rinerhorn’s 3.5-kilometre-long sledging trail special. Action and adrenaline await for those who dare to tackle the 33 bends and fast, steep corners. You can also hire original Davos toboggans from the valley cable car station.

Five

A mountain with something for all ages

Ride up in comfort by cable car or take a winter hike up to the upper station: the Jatzmeder self-service restaurant is right next to the upper cable car station and is a great place to meet up on the Rinerhorn. Perfect for kids, parents and grandparents.

Six

A rapid descent to the valley by scooter

Fabulous views, speed, and plenty of action: the 4.5-kilometre-long scooter trail from the Rinerhorn down to the valley lives up to the hype. Scooters are available to hire from the upper cable car station on the Rinerhorn (children/teenagers CHF 10, adults CHF 15), including a helmet and brief induction.

Seven

In an idyllic location on the banks of the river, right opposite the Rinerhorn lower cable car station, the campsite is open all year round. Perfect for cyclists, hikers, and winter sports enthusiasts.

Eight

Visit the petting zoo

Seeing animals is fun. Touching and stroking them is even better. The alpacas, goats and pigs at the Rinerhorn petting zoo love being petted and fed. And the best part: entry is free for all the family.

Nine

Treat your children to a playground with a view

Kids who need to let off some steam after a visit to the petting zoo will love the vast playground next door. There is plenty of fun to be had on the trampoline, climbing frame, bouncy castle and other equipment. While the children play, parents can enjoy a coffee on the sun terrace of the Jatzmeder restaurant.

Ten

Ride the longest singletrack trail in Switzerland

Next to the Jakobshorn, the Rinerhorn is the second entry point to the Alps Epic Trail Davos – the longest singletrack trail in Switzerland. It is the first and only trail in Switzerland to have been designated an IMBA Epic trail. In short: one of the best mountain bike trails in the world awaits you here. Ride on!
