A regular Powder Byrne favourite, Flims is the perfect place for skiing in Switzerland. It has a low-key, family atmosphere, long varied runs and a sunny disposition. Thanks to the Vorab glacier 70% of the winter sport action is between 2,000 and 3,000 metres above sea level, making it one of the most snow sure places in the Alps.

The scenery is stunning and all abilities are catered for, with great nursery slopes in the centre of the village and amazing tree-lined runs intermediates will revel in. The resort is also popular with weekenders and the perfect choice for a quick ski fix, ensuring maximum time on the slopes.
