Where the Chalet is Situated

New Website!

We hope you like our new look!

For skiers, speed and ease of access to the slopes is all-important. The chalet is situated 5 minutes walk from the centre of Klosters Dorf, at the foot of the Madrisa mountain. There one finds the newly updated Madrisabahn bubble car. At the top is a choice of 20 runs ranging from beginners' slopes to the famously picturesque Schlappin black run. Klosters Dorf Railway Station is opposite Madrisa. Frequent trains and buses (both free with the ski pass) take skiers to the giant Gotschna/Parsenn ski area. With typical Swiss precision the trains are scheduled to take exactly 2mins to Klosters Platz where the cable car goes from! The bus takes 5 minutes. As well as buses from Madrisa and the Klosters Dorf Railway station, there is also a bus from a stop at the bottom of the chalet drive(about 50m) with buses to the Gotschna cable car, these buses are a little less frequent, at around 20 minute intervals.

Ski Map
We found a good version of the ski/trail map here at skisnowboardeurope.com.

The 5 minute walk to the middle of the Dorf also takes guests to three ski hire shops, the ski school booking office, a baker with other basic provisions such as milk, a Co-op supermarket stocking all essentials and a Post Office.

Book your Ski hire through Dörfji Sport before you go and save. Ski lessons can also be booked at the Saas ski school counter in Dörfji Sport.

The chalet is also perfectly situated for summer visitors. It faces south over the valley, offering sunshine that streams all day long through the living room and upstairs bedrooms. The garden/terrace offers spectacular views across the whole valley and across to Piz Gotschna. There is a large meadow opposite the chalet with a walk to Klosters Platz through alpine flowers. Cows and horses can be seen grazing (and sometimes heard thanks to the cowbells!) in the meadow. Several marked walks and hiking trails start behind and either side of the chalet as the chalet is at the bottom of the Madrisa mountain. In summer the mountain behind the chalet is carpeted in wild flowers, which leads straight to a pine forest. The rare red squirrel can sometimes be seen in the bushes directly behind the chalet. In front of the chalet, the whole of the Klosters valley is laid before you, surrounded by the 2800m peaks of Gotschna, Madrisa and the Vereina pass in the distance.
