Starting point for off-piste skiers and ski tourers 

Splitboard, ski and snowboard tours around LAAX

Ski & Splitboard tours are the quiet alternative to the lively slopes of the ski resort Flims Laax Falera. The variety of tours around the ski destination LAAX alone is great and the Surselva is known far beyond its borders for established freeride destinations like Sedrun or Disentis. You can easily reach both places from Peaks Place by public transport or by car for a day trip.

Freeride checklist – off-piste safely on the road in LAAX

Crevasses, avalanches, snow holes: going next to the secured slopes can be dangerous. Please prepare yourself well before you go next to the slopes. If you are inexperienced in open terrain, choose a secured route or go ski touring with a certified guide.

What you need to do before you go on a tour:

  • Check local avalanche bulletin and weather report.
    Pay attention not only to the current report, but also to the conditions of the past days.
  • Evaluate terrain
    Always choose the tour according to the maximum difficulty level that occurs and matched to your ability. Use the map and the avalanche situation to determine potential danger spots: Shady and sunny slopes, couloirs, etc.
  • Evaluate group members
    Who is going with you? Remember to always tailor the tour to the ability of the weakest participant.
  • Check equipment
    An avalanche transceiver (LVS), avalanche shovel and probe are standard equipment. Before heading out, check the batteries in the avalanche transceiver and do the equipment check with the other group members.
  • Follow 3×3 assessment matrix
    From the planning at home to the descent through the deep snow slope, there are different phases in which the conditions, the terrain and the human factor must be assessed again and again. You should know this matrix.
