The classic run

Tradition and modernity

Parsenn, which links Davos and Klosters, is the cradle of skiing in Switzerland. In 1895, four English tourists lost their way on the Weissfluhjoch and ultimately landed in Küblis, thereby discovering the 12 km-long Parsenn descent - an Alpine myth was born.

Since the opening of the funicular railway over 80 years ago, Parsenn has become the classic skiing mountain with endless descents on wide slopes and stylish and traditional mountain lodges - as shown by the Parsenn Derby, the oldest ski race in Switzerland. The Parsenn ski arena can be reached from Davos using the Parsenn funicular railway and from Klosters by the Gotschna cable car.

The classic run

Raiffeisen Skimovie Run

On Davos Parsenn, you can not only do your own thing on the piste but even create your own ski movie. The Raiffeisen Skimovie Run is located adjacent to the Rapid chairlift. All you need to do is go into the starting hut, register your ski pass on the turnstile, wait for the starting signal and enjoy your descent. In the finish area, you’ll be able to read your best time. As a holiday souvenir, you can watch your Skimovie online, download it and even forward it to your friends.
