With reliably good conditions, much of the terrain here sits above 2,000 metres. Snow-sure pistes zigzag above the villages of Laax, Flims and Falera, and the slopes are equally good across the whole area.

We don’t often shout about the lifts but this network is particularly good. It’ll whisk you as high as 3,000 metres on the Vorab Glacier, while the futuristic Porsche lift is pretty impressive.

For some, Laax ski holidays are all about the Freestyle Academy, while snowboarders are in their element with four snowparks and the world’s largest half-pipe.

While Flims is a traditional village, Laax was built for convenience, with slope-side accommodation and a good range of bars and restaurants. We love Rocks Lounge for civilised après drinks, while Indy Bar is livelier, and Tegia Larnags does the best cheese fondue.

Non-skiers have plenty of options too, including curling, winter walking and visits to the spa. And when it’s time to go home, the fast transfer to Zurich airport makes for an easy journey.

"One of my favourite Swiss resorts, and yet it is still such a hidden gem. Fantastic terrain, mellow vibe and surprisingly large."
