Klosters Off Piste
Klosters benefits enormously from having five separate ski areas which between them give access to a vast amount of off piste. Most of Klosters’ best off-piste skiing is hidden from the lifts ensuring the possibility of fresh tracks several days after a snowfall. This is enhanced by the fact that so much of the skiing is north facing so the powder keeps much longer than on other aspects.
Many of the off-piste descents combine a variety of terrain, ranging from big open slopes to long wooded glades opening onto gently undulating meadows dotted with cow houses and farmers’ sheds. There are also many ski-touring possibilities for those who are happy to do some walking, such as the back of the Madrisa down to Gargellen in Austria or the picturesque village of St. Antonien, and the Weissfluh Gipfel down to Arosa.
PT Ski can help you get to ski this fabulous terrain. We can book IFMGA mountain guides and local guides on your behalf for some or all of the days of your holiday. We also run special off piste weekends as well as a ski touring safari around the fabulous Silvretta region in April. Equipment is extremely important when venturing off piste and the ski shop we use has an extensive range of off piste skis and touring skis for you to choose from, while you can also rent skins, avalanche transceivers and ABS backpacks.
