Laax


This will probably be my last post this season about the Swiss ski resorts. From the three resorts I've visited, Laax is definitely the biggest. we had a company winter event there and I joined the winter walk activity.



Laax is on much higher altitude than Klosters and you can really feel it - the temperatures are much lower and the wind can be really chilly, especially if you are riding on an open ski lift. So be prepared!

The views were really magnificent and there are many restaurants up on the slopes, some of which were very crowded though. We went up using gondolas and also hiked about on hour, had lunch and then walked down for about 2.5 hours. Unfortunately I don't know which trail we exactly took because we had a guide with us. Walking with a guide was really great experience because he was explaining how  the climate change has impacted the area, different geological formations and the traditional lifestyle in Graubünden mountains. If you ever have a chance, then use a local guide there.
