    If you have visited this resort not too long ago, why not add your own short review to this page?

    News – 2017/18

    On the Parsenn the 45-year-old Furka double chairlift will be replaced by a six-pack with covers and heated seats that will cut the journey time to around five minutes.

    News – 2016/17

    On Madrisa, a 6-seat chair lift replaced the T-bars from mid-mountain to Schaffürggli. It has covers and heated seats and a laser beam detects if small children are about to board and automatically lowers the seat. A new Madrisa-Alp self-service restaurant replaced the Saaser Alp. The Alexander hotel re-opened as the 4-star Spenglers Davos after a radical ‘designer’ makeover.

    Summary

    If you like the sound of the mountains around Davos but don’t like the look of Davos itself, here’s your solution: a traditional-style village with equally good access to the Parsenn. Jakobshorn, Rinerhorn and Pischa are distant, but Madrisa is on your doorstep – and had a worthwhile lift upgrade last season.
