On 18 November, the world's best ski resorts were selected at the "World Ski Awards" in Kitzbühel. The event is part of the World Travel Awards, also known as "Oscars of the travel industry". LAAX has already won several awards. This year we are once again one of the winners and can look forward to three awards: as the world's best freestyle resort, as the best ski resort in Switzerland and with rocksresort as the most environmentally friendly hotel. We are very proud to receive such great feedback from both the jury and our guests,"said Flavio Battaini, COO of the White Arena Group. "The awards show us that we are meeting the nerve of the times. We, as a whole team, are working on developing LAAX further and making it possible for winter sports enthusiasts to enjoy a unique experience in the future as well. The awards encourage us to remain innovative and give our best to make LAAX guests happy. The awards have been presented annually since 2013 by audience and jury decisions.

New category: "World's Best Green Ski Hotel"
For the first time, selected hotels were also chosen for the "World's Best Green Ski Hotel". The inclusion of this category underlines the increasing relevance of sustainability in the tourism industry. The rocksresort in LAAX, which cultivates a responsible use of its resources and the environment and acts according to the "Minergie" standards, took first place in this category.

A few days before the "World Ski Awards", the in-house developed app "Inside LAAX" also received two awards. At the "Best of Swiss App" Awards it won gold in the categories "Design" and "Business". The app also made it onto the shortlist of seven candidates for the Master's degree. A total of 138 projects were submitted.
