Skiing in Flims-Laax-Falera - Graubünden ski region Award winning skier's paradise with over 235km of pistes and a glacier

Perched on a sunny terrace above the upper reaches of the Rhine this is a long established resort which has undergone considerable development in recent years. Although the ski area has been extended to over 235km of pistes nevertheless Flims-Laax-Falera is still basically a friendly resort with three villages sharing the same ski area. A resort that is very popular with the Swiss themselves so you could not have a better recommendation: it was even awarded 'Switzerland's Best Ski Resort' every year from 2013 to 2016.

Ski runs

Flims-Laax-Falera boasts over 235km of ski pistes and as this is all topped by the Vorab Glacier at 3,000m you can be sure of skiing throughout the season. There are three main interconnecting areas with three base stations all covered by a single ski pass - creating some very long ski runs linked by a well planned lift system. Snowboarders are also well catered for throughout the whole area with four snowparks and one of Europe's biggest halfpipes. A frequent shuttle bus service links Flims Dorf & Waldhaus with Laax and Falera.

Crap Sogn Gion This area at 2,222m is reached by cable car from Laax or Flims base station or by skiing across from Nagens. From here there are pleasant easy runs down to the littlle hamlet of Falera or a choice of easy or difficult runs back to Laax. Alternatively you can make your way back to Nagens from where you can ski back down to Flims. The halfpipe on the Crap Sogn Gion is the world's biggest at 200 metres in length.

Nagens This is the hub of a large ski area with a variety of pistes fanning out in all directions. This area is reached either by taking the gondola from Flims base station or via Foppa-Naraus to Grauberg. The brand new and stylish 10 seater La Siala cable car designed by Pininfarina (Ferrari's designers) takes you up to La Siala at 2,810m from where there are some exciting runs for the intermediate skier. One of these runs brings you to the drag lift that can take you up to 3,018m on the Vorab Glacier. From here two easy runs are available or you can take the exhilarating 10km run down to Lavadinas where a Porsche-designed 6 seater takes you back to the mountain.

Foppa-Naraus A three seater chair lift goes up from Flims base station to Foppa from where the second stage of the chair lift takes you on up to 1,905m at Naraus from where there is a choice of easy and medium runs. Alternatively you can take the cable car up to Cassons Grat at 2,670m from where there are yellow runs for freestylers.

All in all a superb winter resort with long runs and a well planned lift system - one of Switzerland's best kept secrets!

Après ski

There is a wealth of choice in this resort and half the fun will be doing the rounds to find your favourite watering hole.

Our suggestion is the trendy Legna Bar – situated at the base station in Flims. You could also try the new rockslounge, which has been transformed from the former infamous crapbar (crap meaning 'peak' in Romasch). Reflecting the high quality character of the resort, it offers a first class cocktail selection and is the perfect place to relax with a drink after a day in the snow. Also to be found at the Rocksresort at the base station in Laax you will find a further five bars offering a great variety of food and drinks.
