The train winds its way like a thread through the mountains. We're going skiing.
This could be a dream of a day.
|Facts||Welcome to Laax, Switzerland|
|Where||Railways and skiing around Laax-Flims in the Swiss Alps.|
|Travel||Fly to Zurich, take the train to Chur or Ilanz, and then 30 minutes by bus from there to Laax. You don’t need to rent a car in Switzerland because you can reach many great ski resorts by train. Swiss railway ticket prices and timetables are available at Swiss Railways and SBB.|
|Accomodation||We stayed at the Riders Palace (www.riderspalace.ch), which caters to young people. If you’re looking for quiet evenings, try Signina Hotel (www.signinahotel.com) or Rocks Resort (www.rocksresort.com). All are near the lifts in Laax, not more than a five to ten minute walk.|
