Ride and Smile: more than a ski school in Davos klosters

We are ready to offer you a memorable winter experience.
To guarantee the perfect experience, our services also extended outside of the tracks.

Our philosophy on the slopes is “Ride and Smile is the best way to learn”, matching the technique you need to the adventure you crave, so you can improve your skiing at a pace which suits you.

We believe experiences shape our own stories. Our love of nature and our commitment to providing a genuine landscape experience are the goals which motivate us.Our three guiding principles are: fun, flexibility and technique.

FAMILY SKI

Enjoy a ski day with your beloved family! By joining one of our lessons, you can book a teacher for the whole family without any extra charge. We understand that families sometimes would rather not ski together 100% of the time because there might be differences in ski levels, so the family ski teacher will give you total flexibility on how your day will be at the slopes while also providing insider tips such as the best spot to have a break, the perfect place for lunch or for meeting up during the day.

PRIVATE SKI LESSONS

Ride and Smile works with private classes because we believe it is the best way to learn how to ski. Whether it is with your family, a group of friends or even just by yourself, one-on-one classes with the instructor are an opportunity to work on specific techniques and allow people to ski without worries, just having fun! You will also have the ski instructor’s full attention and be able to get safety tips specifically for your skills and preferences.

  • PRIVATE SKI LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS
    To guarantee success in any sport, it is very important to pay extra attention at the beginning. The first contact with skiing has to be pleasurable and provided with the proper techniques to raise your level of confidence and knowledge necessary for rapid improvement!

  • PRIVATE SKI LESSONS FOR KIDS
    Kids learn differently than grownups. With Ride and Smile for kids, children have so much fun learning how to ski that they do not even realize they are taking a class. All classes are taught in a natural and playful way.

SKI TOURING AND OFF-PISTE SKIING

Ski touring in Davos or Klosters is the most beautiful way to enjoy the mountains far away from the busy slopes. Despite the peaceful scenery, there is a lot of work that is put into ski touring and we will provide all the preparation needed: planning the right route, checking avalanche safety and, of course, finding good snow to ski down.

    • SKI TOURING AND OFF-PISTE SKIING GUIDE FOR BEGINNERS
      Since ski touring is a more complex skiing activity, it is crucial all beginners have lessons about how to ski safetly and securly in the mountains. With the help of a ski touring guide for beginners, you will have all the information you need about techniques, safety equipment and how to choose the right level for the tour by taking the cable cars to reach the most special skiing spots

    • SKI TOURING AND OFF-PISTE SKIING FOR GROUPS
      Ski touring on mountains with your friends, family and/or coworkers is always a nice thing to do, but it involves a lot of important details like the different levels of skiing experience of all participants, Ride and Smile will make sure you practice ski touring safely, planning the tour for your personal needs.

Powdertage im März Wir haben mit Manuel ein paar absolut geniale Tage verbracht. Er hat traumhafte Pulverhänge trotz allgemein nicht mehr idealer Bedingungen für uns gefunden und auch dafür gesorgt, dass alle aus der Gruppe frische Spuren ziehen konnten. Er geht auf jeden Teilnehmer und seine Bedürfnisse unf Fähigkeiten ein. Nebenbei vermittelt er wichtiges Wissen zu Sicherheit und Gelände und gibt wertvolle Tipps zu Aufstiegs- und Abfahrtstechnik, von denen auch Erfahrenere profitieren. Einer der besten und professionellsten Guides, mit denen ich unterwegs war. Wir freuen uns schon auf nächstes Jahr!

Freeride Trip in Klosters Mit Manuel haben wir den besten Tag ever verbringen dürfen: feinste powder runs abseits der Pisten, super Tips und Tricks für die beste Tiefschneetechnik und nebenbei noch richtig anschauliche Lawinenkunde. Besser kann man es nicht machen! Fünf Sterne + und jederzeit wieder. Spätestens im Sommer zum Mountainbiken! Tausend Dank Jenny & Anna

Tour-ski guiding Ride and Smile gave us a perfect day of tour-skiing in de surroundings of Klosters/Davos. A true paradise for skiing backcountry. We had a very careful and friendly guide who gave us a lot of very useful tips, safety instructions, ski-skills and other tricks. We started the day early morning and finished late in the afternoon: you really get value for your money. Our guide Patrick gave us the best he can. We definitely recommend Ride and Smile guiding-office and will come back for sure! Thank you Ride and Smile for a great experience at late December in beautiful Klosters/Davos! See you soon! All the best!

Stunning downhill biking in Prattigau 2 superb mornings of mountain biking spent with Manuel and my 2 sons (12,14). Took us on new trails from Wolfgang and Sertig down to Klosters. Gauged our ability level just right, so we were tested yet not too technical to blow anyone's confidence. We'll be back for more in summer 2021.

Best hike in Davos/Klosters Area Best hike in the Davos/Klosters/Prätigau Region! Uncrowded tracks through a very complete hike with waterfalls, rivers, lookouts, bridges, farms, flowers, historical sites, beautiful rock formations and many other surprises. Ride & Smile knowledge of the region made me visit places I would not have seen otherwise. Can definitely recommend. The option of Virtual Guiding is a great idea too, if you don't necessarily want to be accompanied by a guide.

Ski fahren lernen Wir hätten zwei wunderschöne Tage mit Ride and Smile. Ich könnte davor nicht Ski fahren. Hab nie probiert. Dann kam der Tag. Nach drei Stunden bin ich schon Berg runter gefahren. Mir würde alles gut erklärt. Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem tollen Ergebnis. Hat echt viel Spass gemacht. Ski fahren ist für mich ab jetzt ein Lieblingssportart im Winter. Danke für die schöne Zeit und ich kann weiter empfehlen. Paulina

Great off piste guide in Davos / Klosters Had a great day off piste with the guide from Ride and Smile. As I had been so fortunate to go off piste with a guide from Ride and Smile last year it was no doubt who I was going to call for this years trip to Davos. Always service minded and able to find the spots with the best conditions. Hans, Norway

What a fantastic ski lesson in Klosters with Ride and Smile! My husband and I visited Klosters as total beginners and only had one day to ski. We wanted to make the most of the little time we had and after a lot of research for a good ski lesson in Klosters, were very pleased when Ride and Smile could fit us in! Our instructor was absolutely fantastic and I cannot thank him enough for a great day. We achieved WAY more than I ever thought possible to achieve in just one day. We were worried that it would be a wasted trip if we didn’t even make it up any slopes but with Ride and Smile, we were up there within 2 hours! It really showed the importance of having a great instructor when we massively overtook other beginners who started before us. Not only did our instructor help with the skiing, it was also so useful having a friendly face with us all day with great recommendations for where to ski, where to eat and grab a drink and generally just help with the language barrier. We were collected from the lobby of our hotel and had no worries whatsoever about how to get to where we were going. We honestly got so much out of our day and would HIGHLY recommend Ride and Smile to anyone visiting Klosters. We know they do so much more than ski lessons too and we would love to try out some of their other activities in the summer!

Wir hatten drei grandiose und lehrreiche Skitourentage. Manuel ist ein super Guide, der auch noch Tage nach dem letzten Schneefall die unverspurten Tiefschneehänge aus dem Hut zaubert. Klare Weiterempfehlung!

Manuel hat sich unserem Anliegen angenommen und am Schluss konnte er nicht einmal ein Geschäft mit uns machen. Trotzdem hat er uns wertvolle Tips gegeben und uns super beraten. Man spürt, dass Ihm das Wohl der Gäste am Herzen liegt und den Kunden an erster Stelle stellt. Vielen dank, hoffentlich können wir dich beim nächsten Mal berücksichtigen. (Fotos folgen)

Connected with Ride and Smile for a ski tour in Davos with my son who was practicing for the first time, and Manuel was our guide. And He gave us a great service : fun, very well organised to chose the right tour given the weather and snow, top focus on safety and very much customer oriented, doing all he could so we has a good time, which we did. Highly recommended and will definitely use their services again.

If I could, I would give Ride and Smile 6 stars! 🤩😜. From first enquiry about booking a guide, through discussing the options and plan, and then on the day itself, everything was highly professional with great communication. I had a day off-piste skiing and was perfectly matched with one other person. We skied fresh lines all day and had great fun but safety always came first. Not only was it amazing skiing but also excellent people to be with. I learned lots and came home with great memories and tired legs! The perfect day. I will be back! 😉😁
