Davos, Switzerland :    

There is nothing more special than finding a piste half way through the morning, where no one else has been, other than those who groomed the slopes before you.

I’m not yet into skiing with my full camera kit, so on this occasion I was hiking and taking in the beauty of the blue sky and sparkling snow.  There was not much in the way of wildlife – the cacophony of human voices would have frightened off the hungriest animal, although I did get a brief view of a bear in the far distance making its way to quieter zones…

Davos is a snow fiend’s delight – there is easy access to many different slopes on both sides of the village.  The village, itself, offers a lot to visitors and accommodation of varying grades is abundant.
