Early season skiers and boarders to Davos-Klosters can take advantage of free lift passes on pre-Christmas visits, when booking their trip through a participating hotel.

Following the introduction of the free lift pass offer last season, Davos is extending the deal to visitors from 18 November to 23 December 2011.

The free passes are valid for each overnight stay and can be used on all lifts in the Jakobshorn and Parsenn sectors.

The deal is only available in the hotels listed on the Davos website, but there is a wide choice – from the 2-star Edelweiss, to the 4-star Sheraton; the Davos youth hostel is also included. And many of the main Klosters hotels are also listed.

Getting to the resort is expected to be a little quicker this winter too: the 3.7km long Saas bypass is due to open in November, hopefully reducing traffic congestion on the main A28 road from Landquart. The tunnel and bridges start just after Küblis and pop you out at Klosters.

The new tunnel follows the opening of the Gotschna tunnel in 2006, which was built to re-route traffic away from the resorts. A third bypass, the Küblis, is also planned but not expected to open before 2016.

And if you are heading for Davos … Jakobshorn has a new lift for this winter – a quad to Brämabüel above the cable car at Jshalp. It replaces the last draglift on the mountain and will serve the area’s steepest mogul run, as well as red runs.
