School Ski Trips to Davos

Why take a a school ski trip to Davos?

Davos is a small Swiss town with an international appeal that has always extended beyond its own ski slopes and those of the Parsenn ski area that it shares with neighbouring Klosters.

It can consider itself a pioneering town when it comes to ski tourism. In the 1880's a local businessman bought a pair of the newfangled "Norwegian snowshoes", as skis were known at the time. The sport captivated Sir Arthur Conan Doyle whose wife was having treatment in Davos for TB. He shared his passion with the readers of Strand magazine and a whole new type of winter tourism was born. The town has never looked back.

Outside of snowsport, Davos is host to the World Economic Forum (WEF), an annual meeting of global political and business elites (often referred to simply as Davos).
