Greetings From Davos, Switzerland!

Mar 1, 2004
2004 / March 2004

Whether you’re planning a seven-day holiday or a quick ski weekend, Davos is easy to reach from Zurich International Airport (ZRH).

A short two-hour drive and I was checking in for a much-anticipated five-night stay at the elegant Arabella Sheraton Hotel Seehof. Originally built in the 13th century, the 115-room hotel offers countless amenities, superior service, three restaurants, a lovely spa and stunning views from its guestrooms. Completely renovated in 1999, the elegant property right in the heart of Davos serves as a home-away-from-home for celebrities and politicians alike.

Never anticipating that North America would hit a snowfall record this winter, I purposely selected the ski resort of Davos for my winter getaway, secure in the knowledge that it would guarantee me a good snow base to enjoy the incredible variety of sporting activities this city has to offer. For skiers, the resort is ideal. In addition to its convenient location adjacent to the Paarsenn train-the starting point for all skiers-the hotel also features a Swiss Rent A Sport rental and supply shop. With the assistance of front desk clerk, Sabine, we prearranged via email our entire five-day slate of activities including skiing, tobogganing, snow shoeing and skating on a rink right in front of the hotel. At the end of one very busy day, we indulged ourselves at the hotel’s new Arabella Vita Spa-perfect for soothing tired muscles after a day on the slopes.

I wish you all safe travels as I head next from Europe to explore the heart of Asia. Until next time, happy trails.
