    In the 3years of knowing and working alongside Reto and Judy, I've had the pleasure to witness and to personally experience their love of Jesus and their love of people. I've also witnessed them as a family living out and being faithful to Gods great commission (Matthew 28:19). 
    A blessed family and a blessing to call them friends!

    After working with Ywam over the last 10 years there are only a handful of bases I will solidly recommend. The main reason for that is the leadership, style and culture which is intentionally created. Reto and Judy are amazing leaders who not only pour their lives into the mission there but have the heart to really connect to the local community and the schools they run. Davos has always been one of my favorite places to teach at for many reasons. These guys are cutting edge and are successfully extracting religion while making true disciples who understand a supernatural culture of honor. Revival starts in the family and the Gubler family is a demonstration of that truth.
    The students that have spent time there have been radically transformed and many I know personally who are shaking things up with God years later. On top of it all Davos is one of the most beautiful places on earth !

    My name is Travis Brummett, and I completed my DTS at YWAM Davos in 2008/2009. I can honestly say that these 6 months were some of the best times of my life. Reto and Judy treat every student and leader that come through their base as if they were their own children. They were so encouraging in guiding me along in my walk with the Lord. They have successfully created a DTS which allows students and leaders the room to grow in relationship with God and new friends. I still have relationships with many of my fellow YWAM-ers, as well as with Reto and Judy, and I plan on visiting them in Switzerland during my honeymoon this coming October. I have been so blessed to watch these two love each other and the Lord so much, and share that love with others. My life was changed during those short 6 months, and I have never been the same since.

    Reto and Judy are one of the finest couples I know. They lead with a true passion for Jesus, their staff and students. They have an amazing vision for impacting the shred culture. On the base they have created an atmosphere of love, freedom and honor. Which is empowering their staff and students to be powerful people. The base in Davos is awesome, they have their own little park in the back yard, and only a few minutes to walk to the closest gondola station. The riding on the different mountains around Davos is rad! Both park and free riding. As far as I am concerned this is a perfect place to serve Jesus, change the world and get some good riding in.

    Well, these guys, Reto and Judy, they are just over the top radical and crazy, ha, ha ok, a little bit more serious: Ywam Davos is a base that is still young and a pioneering base for Europan Snowboarding Discipleship-Schools. It is in the middle of the Alps and just right in the heart of the Snowboard-/Mountain-Scene. The staff leaders, Reto and Judy, have been such an example of having a heart for the scene and mountain towns. It's been a joy to watch them, walking out their vision, standing strong in what God called them to do and seeing so many lives being changed going though their schools. They allow the people to be free and dream, catch vision and run. What a joy it has been to pray, worship, fellowship and share meals with them, people who sacrifice life to see others find and walk out their destiny.

    When you come to YWAM Davos, you don't just join a school, you join a family. That is exactly the way that Reto and Judy will make you feel the second you meet them. Working and learning beside the two of them has been one of the biggest blessings of my life and I give them some credit in forming who I have become today. Everything about YWAM Davos is special. From the area it is in, the people who go there and to the power that god brings to that place. I won't forget about my time spent there until my time here on this earth is over. And if you do a SDTS here too, I know you will feel the same way I do.

    Being completely surrounded by the Swiss Alps, living life with people so passionate about loving others and the freestyle culture; I don't know a better setting than this to fall deeply in love with God.

Who We Are

We are a group of people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds united by a common goal or purpose - to know God and make Him known. We believe that this is something God has asked us to do as individuals and is also something we have committed to as a team. We want to value each individual person and see people grow into their potential. To us it’s important to value relationship over numbers. It’s not about how big our community can be, it’s about the quality of the relationships we build. We’re more than just a club or a team. Instead, we aim to be a group of people who love, honor and respect each other. And as time goes on, we begin to become more like a family; a home away from home.

Because we are a diverse group, it gives our team a unique flavor. The background and culture we come from shapes how we view the world and how we react in certain situations. This can be something that’s amazing and beautiful, but it can also become challenging. Yet even in the hard times, we’re still committed to loving and honoring each other. Honor is an important part of our community. We believe that God created each person uniquely and we want to celebrate that.

We have a passion for God’s presence on a personal level but also as a whole. We love to see God move and strive to see that as a group. We want to encourage each other to step out in faith because it’s encouraging to all of us when we see God do amazing things! Wether that’s providing a package of gum or healing a health issue, stepping out beyond our comfort zone reminds us that our God is a Good Father and He loves to bless His children!
We love to work hard but we also love to play hard. We all define fun in different ways, but one of our goals is to enjoy things together. That can be shredding the slopes in winter or hiking up a mountain in summer, we simply love spending time together. It builds relationships and it makes life fun!
