Weekend operations 24 / 25 November

After a successful start into the season, the wind and weather conditions for the coming weekend from 24 to 25 November 2018 have put a stop to our plans. For this reason the slopes on the Vorab glacier will remain closed.

The cable car from Laax-Murschetg to Crap Sogn Gion will run this weekend as usual from 8.30 a.m. so that guests can enjoy culinary delights in the GALAAXY. The Neverend Trail for bikers and the winter hiking trail from Crap Sogn Gion to Crap Masegn are not open due to the intensive phase of technical snowmaking. The LAAX RENTAL offers skateboards for hire, for example, to conquer the Urban Surfwave and the Snakerun.

Season opening postponed because of storm - winter hiking trail and GALAAXY opened

Mountain Vision AG

In the past few days, the LAAX mountain railway crew has been working hard to provide a range of slopes and parks on the Vorab glacier for the coming weekend of 3 and 4 November. Unfortunately, the storm of the past two days has put a stop to the happy plans for the season opening. With wind peaks of up to 150 km/h, the storm pulled over the slopes and blew away the snow, so that the prepared pistes are not continuously passable. The LAAX ski area is now doing everything in its power to offer its guests good quality winter sports as soon as possible.

Winter hiking trail and GALAAXY on the Crap Sogn Gion open

The winter hiking trail from Crap Masegn to Crap Sogn Gion is open next weekend and allows guests to enjoy the great weather on the mountain. The GALAAXY is also available and spoils visitors with its galactic delicacies. The cable cars Laax-Muschetg to Crap Sogn Gion and further to Crap Masegn are in operation.

The Drone Champions League opens the season in LAAX from 28 - 30 March 2019

Mountain Vision AG

For the first time. Unique. Superlative. The Drone Champions League starts the 2019 season in a completely new environment at an altitude of over 2000 metres between ice and snow. The world-famous Snowpark Laax with the longest halfpipe in the world will be the scene of the DCL drone race from 28 to 30 March 2019 and will not only make freestylers’ hearts beat faster. At speeds of up to 140 kilometers per hour, the drones race across the terrain and have an “icy competition” on the Crap Sogn Gion in front of the GALAAXY.

The DCL is the world’s first live high-speed race series for drones. In eight international teams, the world’s best drone pilots compete against each other and try to steer their homemade drones through an exciting course as quickly as possible. Drone Champions League races have taken place in Germany, France, Belgium, Romania, Liechtenstein, Spain and China.

Reto Gurtner, CEO of the Weisse Arena Group: “We are delighted to welcome the DCL in cooperation with Rapperswil and Zurich and to be the venue for one of the first drone races in Switzerland. Digitization, community and freestyle are all capitalized on in LAAX. And that’s exactly why this event, at which the drones will race through our snowparks, fits in so well with us”.

“A race at this altitude and in the snow is uncharted territory for us. The entire technology of drones has to withstand the extreme temperatures. This will be a challenge for all of us – a pure thrill. But with our races we want to create experiences that not only fascinate our pilots but also the spectators and fans again and again,” says Herbert Weirather, founder and managing director of DCL.

Laax marks the start of the 2019 DCL season. The 2019 racing series not only starts in Switzerland but ends there: from 11 to 13 October 2018, the final will take place with a spectacular race over Lake Zurich in Rapperswil-Jona. All races of the DCL will be broadcasted live on TV online as well as in 100 countries worldwide.
