Great Skiing at Flims and Laax
Fancy some great skiing not too far from Zurich? Have you visited Flims and Laax?
You can’t go wrong by taking a trip to Flims and Laax. Together with Falera, Flims and Laax together make up one big resort with something for everyone. It’s one of Europe’s most snow-sure ski regions and easily accessible as it’s just 10 minutes from the nearest motorway exit.

The town of Flims boast a number of sport shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, including some at the bottom of the slopes too, where you can chill, have a drink and listen to music. There are also plenty of good mountain restaurants directly on the slopes offering a whole range of food from cheese raclette to sausages and meat kebabs, to fine dining.
