Vote Sasha from United Kingdom writes: We had our eye on Laax for quite some time, but it was the first time we actually made it. This is the same time it usually takes us to drive from Geneva to the Three Valleys, but much more comfortable. Our perception had been that this was mainly a snowboard resort with no flat runs, but we could see some flat bits where beginners got stuck.
The ski area is fantastic, with a fair variety of slopes, from blue to black and excellent off-piste almost everywhere. It snowed on Friday and was sunny all weekend, so we were lucky with the weather, but even on Sunday afternoon, we were finding plenty of untracked powder everywhere. The runs are well groomed and maintained and the restaurant options, both on the mountain and in the villages, are quite good with good variety. The slopes were quite clear and sometimes we had the entire piste or off-piste to ourselves.
Bizarrely, despite few crowds on the slopes, there were long queues almost at every chairlift or gondola most of the weekend. Perhaps, it was a busy season. We got our lift passes on it with a slight discount to the face value and no need to queue up and it had some interactive functions.
It could have done with a pdf piste map though, as the interactive one is not always great to read and requires data usage, which is not always good on the mountain. What was great though was the availability of Laax WiFi at every station or restaurant on the slopes, which requires no log in and connects automatically; this is not that common in the Alps. The village of Flims is neat and tidy, a bit quiet away from the main lift, but has a couple of really good if sometimes expensive restaurants, as well as a couple of budget options like a pizzeria.
Our hotel was a 10 mins walk along the road, which is quite flat, so no problem at all. The Laax village has a distinctive taste to it, with a new stone-clad buildings around the main station and a snowpark centre we always want to come here in the summer; maybe this year??
There is also a lake, which is supposed to be quite good for swimming in the summer, so another reason to come here again. Click below to view there ski resort guides.
