Furthermore, Schatzalp/Strela offers a nostalgic ‚slow ski area’, the only one in Europe.
Jakobshorn is escpecially made for boarders and free skiers, who want to have fun with halfpipes and fun parks. Many international championships take place there, too, and it is also a spot for good aprés ski parties.
Opposing, the wide ski area called Parsenn Davos Klosters - which is accessible from Davos and Klosters - is situated. There is a common ski pass available and of course ski slopes of all levels.

The ski pass of Davos (called Regionalpass) includes all mountain operations except the ones at the ski area Schatzalp, which are run privately. Of course partial ski passes are available.
The mountains Pischa, Madrisa and Rinerhorn are best suitable for families. Kids can make their first steps on the ski runs there.
