The Jakobshorn (2,590 m) is a mountain of the Albula Alps, overlooking Davos in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. It is also one of the five skiing regions of the Davos Klosters Mountains, offering 14 pistes.
Located at the northern end of the range between the Dischmatal and Sertigtal, the Jakobshorn is served by a two-part cable car running from Davos Platz. Once on the mountain there are three chairlifts, one short cable car, and one T-Bar. Since 1995 there has also been a two-person chair-lift, running from near the base station to the near the bottom of Usser Isch.
There are a variety of pistes on the Jakobshorn – blue, red and black – and the mountain is renowned for being a centre for snowboarding; Bolgen provides an illuminated super pipe. Pistes are very wide and the area is popular with novice skiers, there are however a number of black terrains for the more adventurous skier.
The main two lifts also open during the summer from July to October as there are many hiking ways on the Jakobshorn.
The Jakobshorn is also a favoured take-off point for hang-gliders and snowkiters.
