‘We are on a mission’ – Crap Sogn Gion in LAAX is getting a fresh, new look

Crap Sogn Gion summit station, at an altitude of 2,252 metres and a focal point of the skiing and snowboarding region of LAAX, is getting a galactic facelift. Parts of the over-fifty-year-old building were given a striking redesign for the 2017/18 winter season, with gastronomic services also improved. The building on Crap Sogn Gion which was often compared to a spaceship is setting off on unearthly adventures under the motto of ‘GALAAXY’. The redesign has given a new face to the spartan rooms and cold walls. But there’s still more to do. The next step is to thoroughly refurbish the building fabric in a forward-looking, structural and energetic way. In doing so, we set the highest standards for climate protection and avoid negative impacts on the environment. The exact completion date is not yet known.

Wall of Wax / The Library / Hollywood

LANDING DECK

As soon as you clap eyes on the building, you will see that a lot has changed. Designed in a white-and-grey camouflage style, GALAAXY blends into the snowy background. Galactic vibes reach you as you make your way up. The gondola lift arrives, and you’ve reached the Landing Deck. The first place you will see is ‘Hollywood’, a grass-coloured wall featuring hundreds of VHS cassettes and old monitors. Then, you continue onto the ‘Wall of Wax’, where 14,000 records recreate the groove of the 80s. Make sure you take the chance to play your favourite song. You no longer have to wait around in bland hallways with concrete walls for your transit onto Crap Masegn. Now, you can wait in the ‘Library’, a setting more akin to a Harry Potter film. GALAAXY makes good use of clichés and contrasting styles.

Mission Control / Print-Shop / Rocket Fries – Snack / WC with Powder Room

MAIN STATION

One level down, you will pass the Main Station. This area is dominated by illuminated neon signs on the wall, retro signs, self-watering plants and all things galactic. At the ‘Print Shop’, you can get various types of badges, T-shirts or hoodies embroidered directly. The short wait is well worth it to take your own personal GALAAXY souvenirs home with you. Then it’s on to ‘Mission Control’. Here, you can gaze through large glass windows and watch the LAAX SOS team at work. Ladies’ and men’s toilets are also located in the Main Station. But be warned, they’re well concealed. Here’s a little tip: to find their respective ‘powder rooms’, men should look out for an old soft drinks vending machine, while women should look out for a kiosk stand with magazines. When you get peckish, Rocket Fries Snack in the Main Station is on hand. Chips with ketchup is a thing of a past. At GALAAXY, you can get toppings such as raclette cheese and sausage with your chips – a taste experience that’s out of this world.

Beach House / Radio GALAAXY / Food Corner

THE HEART

‘The Heart’ is the beating centre of GALAAXY. In this 360° restaurant with pink-coloured seating areas, fancy decorative items and plants hanging from the ceiling, you will find classic dishes such as minced meat with macaroni as well as urban, vegan cuisine such as the ‘Oriental’ salad. For a healthier meal, visit the ‘Beach House’ with its relaxed surf vibes. All kinds of juices as well as coffee and drinks are served here. You simply have to try to chilli orange juice, a truly other-worldly experience. ‘Radio GALAAXY’ in the centre of the restaurant provides supernatural sounds. Various DJs play their sets in this little wooden cabin and bring the mountain to life with exciting beats at the weekend. The music is also broadcast as a ‘web radio’ via the Inside LAAX app, so you can listen to it directly on your headphones.

‘The Heart’ also has some surprises in store, with a host of galactic events. The exact programme is continuously updated. With seats for 320 people, the restaurant can also be booked for all types of occasions.
