The trail/piste maps are too big to be displayed with only the main ski area of Parsenn/Gotchna listed. The 7th mountain, Shatzalp, is open for skiing with access via a mountain railway from the middle of town or from Hauptetälli on Parsenn through the gallery (only with a guide) with a double chairlift and 2 surface lifts. A separate ticket is necessary to use the facilities on Schatzalp. Pischa is a free-ride mountain with cable-car access, with the rest of the south facing slope left as natural snow for learning to ski and ride powder. There are also 6 advanced off-piste runs to the valleys on all sides from 6 to 12 km long with bus access back to the cable car or town.

Visitor Reviews of Davos
Ranger dad from Germany writes:
Yes, it’s a bit dated but this one is like a vintage car that gets better with age. The skiing is epic, long rolling piste. Some steep stuff around Klosters. Lots of off-piste and of course, it’s in the best snow location. It’s a must go.
