Davos Piste “Rewilded”

J2SkiNews posted 19-Sep

Many ski resorts are announcing new ski slopes for the upcoming season, but unusually Davos Klosters have announced they're taking a ski run out of service and "rewilding" the area instead.

The resort's FIS Ischalp slalom run is no longer needed and has been reforested, giving more than 10,000 square metres of the mountainside back to nature.

It's one out, one in though as there is also a whole new piste to explore between Usser Isch and the Carjöl areas of the Jakobshorn.

The new run will offer strong skiers a long 2.5 km descent all the way down to Davos Platz, relieving the pressure on the Gämpen slope which is largely a forest road and providing an alternative route down for freeriders out of the trees.
