Switzerland is famous not only for banks, queues, cheese and clocks. She is also popular with ski resorts, including Laax - one of the favorite training places for freestyle enthusiasts.

A holiday among mountain peaks is a dream not only for skiers. People in love with winter and snow will enjoy their stay in the Swiss resort of Laax, located in the Glarne Alps. The diversity of the local slopes will ensure fun for all skiers, and freestyle fans will be delighted. They have a real field to show off here! The resort includes the resort of Laax, Falera and Flims - three beautiful resorts located in an even more beautiful mountain scenery.

Laax - ski offer

The region offers 235 km of perfectly groomed ski slopes . They consist of 19% green runs, 29% blue runs, 31% red runs and 21% black runs. The longest downhill run is 11 km long.

All routes are connected by a system of 29 lifts, of which the most famous and popular among tourists is the 6-seater Lavadinas-Fuorcia Sura sofa. It has heated seats - there are solar collectors on the back of the backrest. The distinguishing feature of the lift is its automatic 45-degree rotation, performed immediately after leaving the station. Thanks to this, skiers using the couch can admire the mountain scenery, and not stare at those riding in front.

Laax also offers guests 55 km of cross-country ski runs, 60 km of winter hiking trails and 2 toboggan runs. The resort has a modern curling hall, several ski and snowboard equipment rentals, and 2 ski playgrounds for children.

Winter madness in Laax

The region's greatest assets are some of the best freestyle areas in the country. Snowboard fans have 4 snow parks at their disposal, including the largest halfpipe in Europe, numerous rails and jumps, and a freestyle ski slope leading from Crap Sogn Gion to Curnius. Hardly any resort offers such opportunities.

Directly at the valley station of the Laax cable car is the Freestyle Academy , Europe's first indoor freestyle hall. It is a real paradise for both beginners and advanced fans of this sport. They can practice elaborate snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding and cycling tricks all year round.
