FURKA ZIPPER connects Davos with Klosters in a modern way.
Just in time for the start of the season on 17 November 2017, Davos is waiting for a new highlight for the winter guests, the "Furka Zipper". The 6-seater chairlift of the latest generation replaces the ski lift from 1972. The new lift ensures a fast and uncomplicated connection of the two winter sport areas Davos and Klosters.
The name "Furka Zipper" brings the new function to the point. The 6-seater chairlift Parsenn Davos connects with Gotschna Klosters like a zip and this is quick and uncomplicated. The First Class Lift transports up to 2500 persons per hour and shortens the journey from the Gruobenalp to the Parsennfurgga on five minutes. The new valley station is about 350 meters lower than the former station of Furka double skilift. The new slope is thus 400 meters longer and thanks to the new guidance also safer.
In future, the previous crossing of the slopes at the Seetäli ski lift will be omitted. The guests will take the the existing slope from the Gotschnagrat to the Gruobenalp, the valley station of the new chair lift.
The new system is the first D-Line system in Switzerland. The future-oriented cableway technology of the "Furka Zipper" provides the guests with the highest level of comfort during the operation. In addition, the "Furka Zipper" features a state-of-the-art seat heating and weather covers (bubbles).
Davos Klosters Mountains
The Davos Klosters Mountains connect Davos - the highest city in Europe (1'560 m above sea level) - and Klosters - the typical mountain village with beautiful chalets - with five winter sports areas. With 269 km and 80 different slopes, the Davos Klosters Mountains is one of the largest ski resorts in the Alps. Skiers, carvers, snowboarders, freestylers and freeriders - or better all winter sports enthusiasts - will get their money's worth, and the most beautiful and exciting winter experiences will be offered. From the superpipe at Jakobshorn, to the Carverpiste on Parsenn, to unforgettable freeride runs on Pischa to the children's course on Madrisa and the Rinerhorn.
The Parsenn ski area is accessible from Davos and Klosters and is the largest of the five ski resorts. Parsenn is known as the cradle of skiing in Switzerland and as the classic ski mountain with endless slopes on wide slopes and mountain huts with style and tradition. It offers all levels of slopes, from beginner slopes to steep slopes. 15 Bergrestaurants provide for the physical well-being and invite you to sunbathe on the sun terraces.
On Parsenn is also the longest descent. 12 km from the Weissfluh summit to Küblis. From there, the Rhätische Bahn takes the winter sportsmen back to Klosters or Davos. This service is included in the ski subscription.
