Take the different mountain railway nine times to the top of the mountain and arc your way down by taking any of the diverse single trails extending to an elevation gain of a total of 10,000m.

The Davos Klosters resort has unique amenities with five different cable cars, all able to transport bikes. Combining these cable cars and lifts creates a bike tour offering almost 10,000 metres of descent* - there's nowhere else like it! The tour demands excellent and safe riding technique in alpine terrain and also needs riders to keep to a schedule. The Bahnentour, or «Cable Car» tour, as it has become known, is a tour at the limit of what is possible, which is why many bikers do not succeed the first time. The timing does not permit rests or a lunch stop, clearly making the trail experience even more intense.

Sections:

1st section: Descent to Parsenn funicular railway valley station: 8.20
Davos - Weissfluh ridge - Felsenweg - Strela Pass - Chörbschhorn - Stafelalp - Frauenkirch - Glaris. Get off and push on the Chörbschhorn climb; difficult descent to the Stafelalp.

2nd section: Descent to Rinerhorn valley station: approx. 10.10
Glaris - Rinerhorn - Äbirügg - Heidboden - Wildboden - Davos. Excellent single trail descent.

3rd section: Descent to Parsenn valley station: 12.20
Davos - Weissfluh ridge - Meierhofer Täli - Wolfgang - Grüenbödeli - Klosters. The longest descent with a simple, short climb before the Wolfgang Pass.

4th section: Descent to Gotschna valley station: 13.45
Klosters - Gotschna - Chalbersäss - Serneuser Schwendi - Rütiwald forest - Klosters village

8th section: Descent to Madrisa valley station: at latest 17:00
Klosters village - Madrisa - Arensa - Saas - Küblis. Highest section on an old hiking route, then tricky single trail section to Saas.

*A biking ban means that it is no longer possible to ride down the descent from the Strela Pass to Davos. We are currently looking for an alternative to the missing 1,140 metres of descent.
