Piste Rating for Klosters
Klosters is a comfortable, quiet village with a much more appealing Alpine flavour than Davos with which it shares its very extensive slopes. Klosters Platz is the main focus a collection of upmarket, traditional-style hotels around the railway station, at the foot of the steep, wooded slopes of Gotschna. The village spreads along the valley road for quite a way before fading into the countryside.
Most of the resort runs are on open slopes above steeper woodland. A cable-car from the railway station at Platz queues can be a problem here at weekends and peak times takes you up the mountain. For snow reliability, it's usually good higher up, but the home runs are quite low and not so reliable.
There are a number of atmospheric mountain restaurants or huts in the woods above the village. Good restaurants abound in the village, but a reporter comments that there is a shortage of the cheap and cheerful variety. The apres-ski in the village is good. Klosters is an attractive base for walking and cross-country skiing, and tobogganing is popular. There is a leisure centre with an ice rink, and some hotel pools are open. Don't be put off by the Royal connection: Klosters is not particularly exclusive, and it does have a lot going for it.
We'd like to wish you an enjoyable holiday in the snow and please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any queries regarding your insurance cover.
