The Swiss Alps region
Klosters is like a Savile Row suit. It discreetly radiates style, sophistication and a relaxed elegance you'll be hard pushed to find elsewhere. The village looks like a scene from a Swiss chocolate wrapper with intricately-painted, carved wooden chalets huddling together in a valley covered with pines. The sleepy centre, Klosters Platz, harbours a smattering of ski shops, a few cosy bars and the obligatory Swiss watch shops. Unlike St Moritz, 90 minutes down the road, which parades its wealth, Klosters positively shuns the nouveau riche brigade. Even in the best restaurants such as the double-Michelin-starred Walserhof - jeans and fleeces are standard wear.
There's plenty to challenge the expert skier,in the huge linked Davos Klosters Parsenn ski area,including one of Europe's longest runs, about,14 kilometres top to bottom ,the off piste opportunities to find virgin powder seem limitless you can still find untracked powder for days in the right spots unlike sat St Anton or Chamonix where everything is tracked out in hours after fresh snow, but Switzerland's most extensive ski area is also an intermediates paradise. From Platz, the Gotschna cable links to the Parsenn and Strela-Schatzalp ski area of nearby Davos is one of largest connected areas in Europe,so you will not be bored
Most runs are above the tree line (although skip the cable car home and take pine trail run all the way back to Platz), surprisingly protected from the wind and are ideal for shaky intermediates looking to build confidence. All this makes it perfect for mixed-ability groups. Experts can perfect wide carving turns, nipping off piste when they fancy, intermediates can build speed skills and novices can feel chuffed they've tackled their first red.
Aprés ski is understated.and.while you will definitely hear other Brits toasting each other after a good day on the slopes, Klosters attracts a mainly Swiss crowd. Head to the romantic Chesa Grischuna for cosy Swiss hospitality at its best. The wooden beams and open fires are a perfect setting for knocking back a Grappa or five.
The hotels Alpina and Verenia bars also attract a relaxed crowd with late-night drinking at the infamous Casa Antica nightclub/piano bar things get a bit wilder- watch out though, drinks here are expensive. In fact, the only time you'll notice that you're in one of the world's ritziest resorts.
Think about how much a decent hotel break would cost you in England. Then remind yourself that you can spend the same amount carving through powder, gliding silently through tree-shaded runs and rubbing shoulders with royalty - a taste of the high life for a low cost. Class and kudos. Could you really ask for more?
Tell anyone you've just popped over to Klosters for a weeks skiing and they'll think you've got a secret trust fund. Or royal connections. After all, Switzerland's most aristocratic resort is Prince Charles's favourite winter hang out.
