What will the snow be like this winter? By Arnie Wilson


It’s scarcely past tea-time and I’ve just reluctantly put the heating on in my home in Sussex. It’s dark outside, and there’s a frost coming, I’m certain. Winter is on its way! As November unfolds, all skiers’ (and snowboarders’) eyes are on the heavens…wondering whether Mother Nature is going to deliver plentiful snow this winter. Read More…

The Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Festival and what’s new


Yesterday we were at day 1 of the Telegraph Ski and Snowboard Festival in Battersea Park and as always there was a buzz of excitement as the countdown to winter continues.

The concept is to provide a platform which fosters and encourages participants to raise awareness of issues and discuss solutions.

Red Bull Home Run


The Red Bull Home Run is surely one of the craziest races on the planet. However, with the event right on our doorstep the temptation to take part was just too much and I can safely say that if this becomes an annual event (which the team at Destination Davos Klosters very much hope it Read More…

“Off Piste Adventure” February 2018


This was one of our best off piste weekends ever. We had fabulous conditions and Bruno (our guide) found slope after slope of fresh powder snow even though it had not snowed for more than a week. There were 5 guests, Bruno and me (James P-T) and as we headed up the Gotschna on the Read More…

Half term 2018


Half term 2018 was the busiest week yet in our short history. We had over 140 guests in Klosters and it was so nice to see so many returning guests as well as welcoming new ones.  We were blessed by (generally) good weather, especially in the middle days and given all the snow we have Read More…

January Freeride 2018


With all the snow so far this winter the prospects were more than promising for our first off piste weekend of the winter. As usual, the weekend was hosted by James P-T and we had two great guides Thomas and Hans-Michel to show everyone the way and offer tuition as required. The team were split Read More…

Introducing The 2050 Club


The inaugural 2050 Club weekend has just finished and it was a great success. We were blessed by wonderful conditions with three sunny days and powder on the upper slopes. The idea behind The 2050 Club is for those in their early 20s to come to Klosters with a parent (typically in their 50s) for Read More…

Amateur Interclub Championships


PT Ski were delighted to be a sponsor of the Amateur Interclub Championships (AICC) which were held in Alpbach last weekend. However I was there not only in my capacity as sponsor but also as part of the Marden’s team, a club which has been operating in Klosters since 1929.  Most of us arrived in Read More…

Obituary – Tara P-T


Thank you Clair Southwell for writing this lovely obituary for Tara in the Klosters Zeitung… Tara Palmer-Tomkinson who sadly passed away in her sleep of natural causes on 8th February 2017 was a great advocate for Klosters and will be so very much missed. The Palmer-Tomkinson family have long standing roots in the village and Read More…

A day with the Piste Busters


It is always fun to spend a day with the kids and I can recall few better days on the mountain than the Tuesday of half term. The lovely thing about skiing with children is that their enthusiasm and energy is infectious; furthermore this lot didn’t half ski fast! We met as usual in the Read More…

Off piste weekend


I am often asked how our off piste weekends work, or what makes them so special, or what a typical day is like. I am not expecting to answer all of those questions now, but having had a very good first day of this, our first off piste weekend of the winter, I am very Read More…

In two weeks’ time teams of four from the business community will congregate in Klosters to compete in ski races not only against each other but also teams of wounded veterans in the third Skiing with Heroes Business Challenge.

One lift for the rest of my life


A regular feature in Fall Line magazine has been “One lift for the rest of my life”.  As the title suggests the interviewee, usually some pro freerider, eulogises over their favourite lift and it has always got me wondering what lift I would choose if I was ever asked the question.  In the absence of Read More…

These concerts see members of the London Philharmonia Orchestra and the prestigious Lund Student Singers from Sweden combine in a musical feast for two nights in the charming Read More…

With this gizmo everyone can have all their holiday information and documents all in one place on their phone or tablet, and there are some other bells and whistles too. There is a neat little countdown to the Read More…

A Day with All Mountain


At half term last February I managed to sneak a day with the teens on our All Mountain course. It was the third and last day of the course and the 13 of them on it all seemed to be connected by Snapchat and Instagram which I took as a good sign that they had all gelled Read More…

Farewell Schaffurggli T-bar


The takeover of the ‘Klosters-Madrisa Bergbahnen’ company by a group of Swiss investors in 2014 has heralded in a new era for the Madrisa mountain. The new Administrative Board of the Madrisa cable railway last year completed a successful capital raising campaign, enjoying huge support from the local community. Together with bank borrowing, that put Read More…

Summer cycling


We arrived in Klosters late on Friday afternoon and after checking in at the hostel we went straight to Obrist to rent bikes before he closed. A brief change of clothes later we found ourselves heading up to Sardasca for an evening cycle ride. The three children and I had regular mountain bikes but Sos, Read More…

Introduction


Welcome to the new PT Ski blog. Although this is mostly going to be written in the winter we thought there is no time like the present for the first article. Having just been to Klosters and been inspired with cycling, hiking and white water rafting, we felt that sharing some of these experiences would Read More…
