Laax Ski Holidays

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

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

One of Switzerland’s largest ski areas, much of the terrain sits above 2,000 metres. With reliably good conditions, snow-sure pistes zigzag above the villages of Laax, Films and Falera - Laax is our main base, and Films is a pretty place for lunch.

We don’t often shout about the lifts themselves, but the network in Laax is particularly good. It’ll whisk you as high as 3,000 metres on the Vorab Glacier, while the futuristic Porsche lift is worth seeking out.

For some, a Laax ski holiday is all about the Freestyle Academy, which offers coaching to anyone over six. And with four snowparks, plus the world’s largest half-pipe, it goes without saying that snowboarders are in their element.

Laax village was built for convenience, with ski-in/out accommodation and a great choice 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 ice-skating and curling. 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

Laax does ski-in ski-out accommodation particularly well, with family-friendly guesthouses 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.

Very easy and laid back resort.

Thank you to all at SS for an amazing holiday. Everything was amazing and I was astounded by the level of service from yourselves and how well the holiday went. Laax was better than I had hoped and we're already talking about going back next year! The accommodation was excellent, the transfers were on time and very communicative - apart from a bit of fog in Laax and the flight to Aberdeen returning to Heathrow on Sunday night, it was perfect!

Fantastic, very efficient lift system, lovely runs, plenty of places to eat/ drink. Would recommend Laax and Rocks Resort. Eating out is expensive in Switzerland so option of self catering is brilliant in such a convenient position. We will definitely return again!
