Gateway Zurich : 2 hour 30 minutes train transfer.

It's larger, with many more hotels, restaurants, apres-ski bars, and discos than its neighbor, Klosters , with which it shares access to a sweeping network of ski lifts and slopes. Davos attracts a sometimes-curious mixture of the very wealthy and the more modest. It has slopes that appeal to advanced skiers, intermediates, and beginners.

One of the most challenging runs descends from Weissfluhgipfel at 2,844m (9,328 ft.) to Kublis at 810m (2,657 ft.). Klosters: Named after a 13th-century cloister founded on the site, this resort is smaller, more intimate, and less urban than its nearest major competitor, Davos . A favorite of the royal families of both Sweden and Britain, it offers at least two easily accessible ski zones, the snowfields of the Gotschna-Parsenn and the Madrisa. There's a wide range of trails and facilities, offering challenges to all skill levels.
