Laax is a safe bet for some late-season skiing, with 70 percent of its 220km ski area located between 2,000 and 3,000 metres above sea level and a glacier culminating at 3,028m. This winter's cold weather combined with heavy snow fall created a thick blanket of snow, and in the last few years some of the best snow arrived mid to late March and lasted well into April.

Spring skiing, for those who have never experienced it, is a highly addictive cocktail of sun and snow. Laax is offering end-of-season discounted ski packages so you can take advantage of the warmer temps and great snow. The package dates include the 2009 UK Easter school holiday dates from 3rd - 19th April (dates may vary depending on schools).

The ‘Mid-week 4' package starts from £190 per person for four nights (Sunday to Thursday) in a hotel of your choice and includes breakfast and a four-day lift ticket.

Pre-booking the whole holiday can be done through via the resort's Web site. Visitors can book everything they need in advance including lift tickets, ski-equipment hire, and ski and snowboard lessons. The site also features the latest resort news, weather forecasts, and live webcams directly from the slopes.

Laax ski area is made up of the villages of Flims, Laax and Falera and is run and marketed by the Weisse Arena Gruppe, an organization which grew out of the merger between the ski-lift and cable car operators Bergbahnen Crap Sogn Gion and Bergbahnen Flims in early 1996.
