Laax

Laax Ski Resort Switzerland

Laax ski resort is the canton of Grisons (Graubuenden) is one of Switzerland's biggest and best ski resorts. Laax is all about modern lifts, vast terrain, long piste trails for all abilities, challenging off piste skiing and freeride routes, plus monstrous snow parks and resort facilities straight out of a James Bond or Austen Powers movie.

Laax also provided us with the best grilled bratwurst in Europe! Combine that with some of Switzerland's best apres ski bars and you have a winning combination.

Information about this European ski resort is coming soon.

The Powderhounds reviewed Laax in 2018, stay tuned for our photos and insights.
