Grab your wax, put on your helmet and hit the slopes: the pre-season at Swiss ski resort LAAX begins on 31 October, when the cable cars and lifts start to operate at the weekend. The cable cars and lifts from the base station in Laax will run daily from the end of November, before the season really gets under way with the kick-off event on 12 December. This is the perfect way to get the season going, as a lot has been going on in LAAX to set the stage for the perfect season. LAAX has already been nominated in the Switzerland’s Best Ski Resort category at the World Ski Awards, but an award is nothing compared to the unforgettable experiences that people have here. And Europe’s leading freestyle destination has put a lot of work into making the experiences even more memorable this year. Highlights this season include the LAAX OPEN with its big-money prize, the new 10-seater La Siala cable car and the multitude of new culinary indulgences: LAAX offers visitors so many different experiences – the diversity is sure to knock some people clean off their skis and boards!
