Why you should go there: Epic descents on fantastic trails in beautiful alpine landscapes – accessible by cable cars, busses and trains. Gnarly high-alpine rocky challenges, rooty forest glory and endless flowy trails, you´ll find it all in Davos Klosters. Ambitious all-mountain riders will find singletrail heaven!
Davos is bigger than Klosters and has a few more food and accomodation options. Klosters in contrast is more quiet and contemplative. If night-life is important to you stay in Davos, if you want to relax consider Klosters. Both are good starting points for brillant riding days.
We’d recommend end of June to October to travel there, all cable cars are open by this time and most snow should be gone also. You can get to Davos Klosters by car from all cardinal directions by heading to Chur and turning off the A13 at Landquart (Exit 14). The swiss train service (SBB/RhB) also offers good connections to Davos Klosters.
Who is it for: For intermediate to very good riders the region offers a variety of great trails which can be connected to epic-day-rides by lifts. There are also some interesting hike-a-bike options for the lovers of technical descents on all-natural trails and a freeride trail with jumps, drops and wooden elements.
Who should avoid it: Beginners might not find what they are looking for since trails for them are very limited. Also the “purist” biker might dislike the crowds around the lifts and adaptation of trails to make them rideable for a larger portion of bikers.
There are endless options for the skilled biker to choose from. Many trails have a natural character and were only lightly adapted to make them a little more rideable by the “trail crew” of the region. Obstacles like large rocks & roots, switchbacks & steep sections occur frequently.
Enduro Riders will enjoy the trails between Gotschnagrat and Klosters. Bike park lovers will spend most of their time at the Gotschna Freeride Trail.
The “Pischa” and the “Alps Epic Trail” are intended for tour/all-mountain and require some pedalling.
Madrisa, Weissfluhjoch and Jakobshorn offer many more trails which just wait to be explored…
