Parsenn, which links Davos and Klosters, is the cradle of skiing in Switzerland. In 1895, four English tourists lost their way on the Weissfluhjoch and ultimately landed in Küblis, thereby discovering the 12 km-long Parsenn descent - an Alpine myth was born.

Since the opening of the funicular railway over 80 years ago, Parsenn has been the Classic skiing mountain with numerous descents on wide slopes and stylish and traditional mountain lodges, including the Parsenn Derby, the oldest ski race in Switzerland. The Parsenn ski arena can be reached from Davos using the Parsenn funicular railway.
