Laax, Switzerland: Only about 1,5 hours drive from Zurich and with over 220 km of slopes, Laax is the place to start your ski season. Laax is one of my favourite resorts, and the place where we most often go on Sundays. Imagine a cloudy day at the base station, and you just take the lift to cross the clouds to enjoy the winter sun from the blue sky – this place is a winter paradise.
Das Elephant, Laax – lunch with style
I would also recommend my favourite piste restaurant, das Elephant, the culinary high point in Flims-Laax. This small restaurant is located in 2’477m providing a stunning view over the Swiss Alps. This is the place where you can sit outside on the terrace enjoying delicious meals with a glass of champagne. As the place gets really busy during the lunch time, a table reservation is recommended:
Restaurant Das Elephant, Tel. +41 (0)81 927 73 90.
