Laax Ski Holidays

Easily my favourite Swiss resort, and yet it is still such a hidden gem. Fantastic terrain and surprisingly large.

This big ski area has an excellent snow record and a famous freestyle school. Built for convenience, it’s a winner with families and groups.

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.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Accommodation

Our main accommodation base, Laax does ski-in ski-out particularly well, with family-friendly hotels and self-catering apartments. Sociable groups could stay in a cool lodge with an in-house nightclub or, to escape it all, we’d suggest one of the secluded spa hotels with a private shuttle to the slopes.

We’ve stayed at or visited all of our Laax accommodation options, so call us for advice and we’ll recommend the best ones for you.

Perfect.

17/01/2017 John Toon, Signina Hotel, Laax

I can't speak highly enough of the Signina Hotel staff. Friendly, open and helpful from the outset, they stepped up when my wife injured her knee on the slopes - arranging travel (gratis) for me to collect her from the Doc's in Flims, offering support and assistance throughout the balance of our stay and in finding activities for her whilst unable to ski. The resort is compact and easy to navigate - the walk through the hotel basement is direct to the lockers and lift-base. Food and drink both v good and reasonably varied, albeit expensive by UK standards - I recommend the hotel's "Dine Around" half-board package, transferable from the hotel's own restaurant (good - we dined there twice) to five others within a short walk. Skiing was good- fine for intermediates, even with only c90km of 225km open - top of the mountain in glorious sunshine with an empty piste was superb. I had a great time but envy those going this week and next after the weekend's heavy snowfalls, who'll have even more runs to go at. Finally, the transfers (two trains and a post-bus) might seem daunting on paper, but are efficient, very easy to navigate and the views alone make them worthwhile - not to be missed.

Very easy and laid back resort.
