Flims is an undiscovered gem of a resort, with a great choice of flattering runs and a reputation for being one of the most snow sure places in the Alps. It’s not hard to see why this well kept secret continues to be a client favourite.
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.
Nick Trend, writer for the Telegraph, said: 'Flims is like one of those rare Alpine resorts - like nearby Klosters - that still feels like a local village.' With stunning scenery and an active neighbourhood, Flims is the overall perfect place for a family holiday.
Flims is linked with nearby Laax and is part of the largest linked ski area in Switzerland with 235km of skiing available. With spacious runs, empty slopes and glorious sunshine, you'll never want to go home. The scenery in Flims is stunning and all abilities are catered for, with a quick ski fix, ensuring maximum time on the slopes.
One of the longest pistes in the Alps runs from the Vorab Glacier and makes its way to Flims along some reds and blues.

And for the more experienced, we would recommend the lovely long black run just of Vorab to Alp Ruschein.
