Overview

What’s the skiing like? Laax and Flims share a large skiing area with an efficient lift system. The extensive, varied slopes span 188km with scenic views from the upper runs. Further down you'll find pretty, wooded runs that stretch a long way and are ideal for bad-weather days. The resort has invested heavily in terrain parks and has some amazing facilities including the Olympic super-pipe and indoor freestyle facilities. Freeriders flock to the many 'freeride runs' which are essentially ungroomed pistes.

Best suited to? Intermediates and freestylers

Beginners can practise at the nursery areas at resort level and they'll find good, easy runs to progress to. Intermediates are spoilt for chocie with a great variety of slopes, particularly good is the area below La Siala and the sheltered Grauberg valley. There are also some suitable freeride runs for trying off-piste.

Advanced skiers do have some black runs but perhaps more appealing is the wealth of off-piste terrain and the challenging freeride runs (which vary a lot in diificulty).

What’s the resort like? The resort is divided into Laax, Flims and Falera. Generally speaking Laax is more modern and lively while Flims is quieter and more traditional. Some of the villages, including Flims Waldhaus, offer efficient ski buses.

Off the slopes? Ice skating at the sports centre in Flims, make huge jumps at the Freestyle Academy, enjoy a game of ice hockey at Prau la Selva sports centre or take the kids to Laax Swimming Pool.

Downside? The sunny slopes mean snow conditions can be a little hit and miss in the spring. Also choose your accommodation carefully, some are far from ski lifts.

Nearest airport(s): Zurich 143km

The infrastructure is probably what makes this a world class resort - fast, modern lifts, long well-groomed pistes, helpful English speaking staff....Full review
