Vision

"Imagine transforming our destination from a consumer to a producer"

Flims Laax Falera aims to become the world's first self-sustaining alpine destination through economically viable initiatives. This vision includes the Flims Laax Falera region as well as the municipalities of Trin and Sagogn. It means nothing less than that the entire energy requirements of the destination can be covered by 100% renewable energy produced in the region.

Future vision

Renovation Crap sogn Gion

The mountain station of Crap Sogn Gion was built in the 1960s and is the largest and most inefficient consumer in the current building stock of the Weissen Arena Gruppe, both economically and ecologically. The renovation of the mountain station is not only ecologically sensible, but also necessary from an economic perspective. It offers the opportunity to transform Crap Sogn Gion from a consumer to a producer and at the same time create a new guest experience. In terms of operation and architecture, the conversion should become a lighthouse project and point the way for sustainable approaches in the tourism industry.

Vorab glacier

The Last Day Pass

In the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tectonic Arena Sardona, above the Swiss village of Laax lies the Vorab Glacier. In the middle of one of the most popular snowboarding areas in Switzerland, the Snowboard Summer Camp took place until 20 years ago in mid-June. Nowadays, this is no longer possible due to the massive melting of the glacier. In the next 30-35 years we have to expect that the Vorab Glacier will have completely disappeared due to the effects of man-made global warming. We believe that it is worth fighting for this very special place and at the same time send a signal to stop human-induced climate change.

Plant-based wax

Ski and snowboard wax

LAAX Rental is currently undergoing intensive testing. The test object? Plant-based wax that is unproblematically biodegradable. In contrast, conventional fluorine waxes, which are often used in alpine, freestyle and cross-country skiing disciplines, are problematic. Fluorine compounds are the most stable chemical compounds and do not degrade even in 100,000 years. That is why they have already been detected, for example, in cow's milk. It is a fact that most waxes are petroleum-based. But it is also true that a change is underway at the legislative level and among manufacturers, which will make ecological products possible.  The plant-based wax is already available for purchase at LAAX Rental.
