Flims - Information

Resort Information  Flims

On a hillside above the river some 18km west of Chur, the winter and summer resort of Flims is well known to the Swiss, who consistently pack the place out every season, but is virtually unknown outside the country. There are two parts to Flims – Flims-Dorf is the older, original village with most amenities and the base station for the ski lifts, while Flims-Waldhaus is a newer resort, with most of the hotels, set amidst beech and larch woods on a slightly higher elevation 1km south. Some 5km south of Waldhaus – across the German–Romansh language border – is the quiet village of Laax, with tiny Falera up a 3km branch road completing the picture. Flims, Laax and Falera all share the extensive “Alpine Arena” ski region, centred on the Crap Sogn Gion mountain (2228m), accessed by a cable-car from Laax-Murschetgon the edge of Laax village, and the Cassons Grat (2634m), served by a combination of chairlifts and a cable-car from Flims-Dorf. Falera has a chairlift to Curnius, halfway up the Crap Sogn Gion. Beginners and intermediates are best served by the range of skiing on offer at Flims-Laax.Flims, Laax and Falera all share the extensive “Alpine Arena” ski region, centred on the Crap Sogn Gion mountain (2228m), accessed by a cable-car from Laax-Murschetgon the edge of Laax village, and the Cassons Grat (2634m), served by a combination of chairlifts and a cable-car from Flims-Dorf.
