This is the name given to the mountain that reaches up from the world famous Davos ski resort and is part of the Davos Klosters Mountains lift pass that covers five mountains, 300 kilometres of slopes and 85 runs. The Jackobshorn area has nine lifts and extends from 1550 meters to 3000 meters, providing some excellent skiing for all abilities along the way. Above the tree line there are some challenging reds and blacks, but the highlights are a couple of cruising, swooping blues that wind their way from the mountaintop down to the village. There are also two halfpipes and a fun-park to keep freeriders happy.
Families are well catered for with a beginners' piste by the bottom chair lift which is perfect for beginners and children. Parents can relax in the nearby restaurant which has good views of the piste from the sun-deck. Naturally for a world famous holiday destination there is no shortage of accommodation or places to eat. Davos has its own train station, is well linked by road and its nearest airport is Zurich.
