Laax

Switzerland

Laax is situated in the Graubünden region of Switzerland, in between Flims and Falera. High on a sunny plateau above the Rhine gorge, Laax offers an awesome ski area for all abilities, particularly intermediates searching for long cruisey runs.

The Skiing

For the perfect all-round piste we recommend the run from 'La Siala' to 'Flims' as it offers an exciting descent and simply stunning views! For your first ever-family ski holiday the slopes of Laax are ideal. With flexible and easy access to the nursery and beginner slopes yourselves and children can become pros in no time at all. Jo Fernandez gives us an overview of her experience when travelling with pb for her first ever ski holiday.

With 235km of slopes and 70% of runs between 2,000m and 3,000m, Laax is part of the largest ski area in Switzerland. Popular with passionate snowboarders and freestyle skiers, Laax is one of the most up to the minute places to ski, with four snow parks - with jumps, boxes, adrenaline-fuelled runs and the largest half pipe in Europe, you'll certainly feel the need for speed! There's also plenty of calmer more relaxed runs for beginners, intermediaries and those who like to take things at a more steady pace. 

The Town

Laax makes it easy for families to enjoy exciting yet relaxing holidays. Whilst children have fun learning to ski in this snowy wonderland, the freestyle generation can discover the snow parks. Laax offers all the benefits of a town, like a post office, a supermarket, a bakery and even a few shops; there's always something to do and it's the ideal holiday location for the whole family. The village centre buzzes with a modern vibe bringing together skiers and boarders who are attracted by the exceptional mountain facilities and venues available. Being just a five minute drive from nearby Flims, Laax enjoys all the benefits of this bigger town, but without any of the crowds.
