- Extensive, varied slopes ideal for intermediates, shared with Flims
- Generally efficient lift system, but with some long ride times
- One of Europe’s best terrain parks
- Sunny orientation can spoil snow
- Bus rides or long walks from some lodgings to the lifts
- Most convenient lodgings are in ‘villages’ we find difficult to like

Laax and the neighbouring villages of Flims and Falera share a ski area that is, in terms of piste km, one of Switzerland’s biggest. The winter programme used to be marketed as Flims (and still is in the summer) but is now known as Laax in the winter – aiming to appeal to the youth, snowboard and freestyle markets as well as its traditional well-heeled family clientele. It has invested heavily in terrain parks, half-pipes, indoor freestyle facilities and organizing high-profile events such as the Brits Snow and Music Festival. Most of our reporters like the skiing but not the slope-side resorts.
