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.
