Ski Holidays in Klosters, Switzerland
Klosters is set in the beautiful Prattigau Valley, 1200 metres above sea level. The friendly village atmosphere in Klosers is a great option for Families, whilst the resort is favoured amongst the royal family, it is much more relaxed and far less exclusive than most would imagine. A number of bars in Klosters Platz cater to a relaxed après crowd and you can dance the night away in Casa Antica. Although the local restaurants are not particularly cheap, they are worth the prices for a special evening out.

Went in Dec 09 - Klosters is a lovely little resort, it is really pretty and has really nice restaurants and a few bars (but it is definitely not a party place). The skiing is great and you can go into Davos for après ski. Switzerland is beautiful and people are very welcoming. I had a great time!
