Flims Laax

Ski resorts in Switzerland
Flims and Laax and also Falera are three Swiss villages that share the vast ski system Weisse Arena. It’s in fact one of the biggest ski regions in the country, both in terms of piste kilometers and total acreage. This ski region is of particular interest for park skiers as it’s an area where there is active investment in several snow parks for jibbers of all experience levels. The area also includes Europe’s largest Superpipes. As a matter of fact, the ski region has become such a popular location among park skiers that it is even featured in the popular Xbox snowboarding games Amped 2 and 3.

Weisse Arena is not only a well-known winter sport region but has also made a name for itself during the flourishing summer season. The modern lift system with its many gondolas means it is one of the most efficient lift systems for summer visitors, too. It has become a popular place for people who want quick access to the mountains for hiking in the alps. You will also see lots of climbers, cyclists and paragliders here during the green summer months.
