Learning Parsenn

We took the train to Davos Dorf and headed up to the top and then dropped over into the Klosters side. Today's plan was to explore the Parsenn area more thoroughly than last time we skied here. We skied some nice off-piste which will eventually become a black run (when they mark it) under the top section of the Meierhoftali chair. After that we did some nice, choppy off-piste to the side of piste 15, took the Totalp and skied down 17 under the Shieferbahn bubble. We picked up the bubble at the mid station and went back to the top; we'd seen some nice off-piste a little further to skiers left of 17 and a quick look at the map showed that it was likely the route of piste 24 (currently not marked and closed). We took this off-piste and it was great, good terrain and nice snow. The section through the trees was a little worn and bumpy but this didn't detract. We stopped at the Chesetta restaurant for lunch which was great (service was a little slow because the King of Sweden was on one of the other tables and had more than his fair share of the serving staff).

After lunch it was later than we'd expected. We skied down to the Schifer lift and took the bubble back to the top. We then dropped back down the off-piste to the side of 15 and took the Seetali T-bar and skied 30, which was fun, with some nice steep sections. Time was running out to catch the last lifts so we took the Furka to a point just high enough for us to drop down to catch Totalp just before it closed. We then skied back down to Davos Dorf via 4 and 9. As usual we played in the off-piste on the edges of 9 and skipped over the rocks and ice at the bottom. A good day and we covered a lot of the Parsenn area.
