Snowboarding in Flims Laax

Snowboarding in Flims Laax

The Flims Laax ski region has long been attracting snowboarders thanks to its renowned status as the ultimate freeride destination. Try out the long red Segnes trail, which joins the Cassons area up with the Grauberg trail. The Cassons area is specifically for freeriding, and with the small cable car reaching it only holding 20 people at a time, you will find yourself virtually alone at the top and ready for a fantastic ride down. Beginners will enjoy a well set out series of novice trails in the Flims Dorf area.

Sustainable Choice

Laax is highly regarded as one of the most committed ski regions for sustainability, through the implementation of an initiative it called Greenstyle. This involves generating solar power on site to cover 30% of the resort’s total power needs, plus the generation of wind power from the Vorab glacier. The resort also has several marked protected natural areas that are preserved as undisturbed habitats for wildlife to hibernate during the cold winter months. In the town you will find many electric car charging stations and an emission-free Shuttle service powered by hydro and solar.
