An integrated source of Alpine winter experiences.
The LAAX winter resort in Graubünden, made up of the villages of Flims, Laax and Falera, is run and marketed by the Weisse Arena Gruppe, an organization which grew out of the merger between the ski-lift and cable car operators Bergbahnen Crap Sogn Gion and Bergbahnen Flims in early 1996. The group now boasts five 100% subsidiaries in the following sectors: ski lifts and cable cars, hotels and restaurants, ski/snowboard hire, ski/snowboard lessons, and management; as well as participations in the Flims Laax Falera tourism organization, in Startgels AG and in Finanz Infra AG. This has made the Weisse Arena Gruppe a successful and multi award-winning, integrated service provider in Alpine winter experiences.

220 kilometres of piste and four new valley runs with snow guaranteed
Boasting the Vorab glacier the LAAX winter sports resort, 70% of which is at an altitude of between 2,000 and 3,000 metres above sea-level, is amongst the most reliable places to find snow in the Alps. As a result, the winter season starts in LAAX as early as mid-November. The five lift facilities which carry skiers from the three base stations up into the winter sports area reduce waiting times and offer passengers all the latest comforts. LAAX boasts over 220 kilometres of varied piste, 25 of them covered with artificial snow, and over 27 lift systems with the capacity to transport in excess of 40,000 passengers an hour. The expansion of the snow-cannon facilities means that visitors to the region can enjoy even greater convenience. Since the start of the 2007/08 season, there have been four valley runs available where snow is guaranteed, enabling visitors to enjoy the runs down to the base stations in Flims, Laax and Falera all winter long. What's more, the piste leading down into Laax has been kitted out with a new piste-lighting system, allowing night-time descents.
