THE PARTIES

Having a good time is a must in LAAX and the lively ski area is full of bars and clubs. Whether you want to party on the mountain or in the city, the mood is always great and everyone enjoys themselves!

In the Arena Bar you will celebrate just like the pro winter sports people celebrate – on a big sun terrace with ski boots on and big thick jackets. They play a range of famous songs that everyone knows the lyrics to and can sing together! Great fun for slope party fans!

The Legna Bar is legendary within the ski area and is visited by people from all over the world! All ages can party together here and they are not shy - you can hear the music from far away. The après ski evening begins early here and if you really want to get back on the slopes you might choose another place for a break along the way!

The Riders Hotel is the best place in Laax where you can celebrate until the early morning hours! It usually gets quite busy late at night when famous DJ’s are put onto the decks. Everyone parties like there is no tomorrow!

For those who prefer to end the evening comfortably in a bar we have bars and pubs where you can have a beer comfortably. The suitable bars are the Indy bar and Il Pup.

RIDERS HOTEL

If you’re already familiar with the Riders Hotel, then you know what’s in store, while if you don’t know about it yet, then it’s time you find out. With live concerts, sport, yoga, art exhibitions, open offices that can also be used as workshops and the club which will catapult guests directly from the mountains to the world’s largest cities with its vibrant beats, the Riders Hotel is a little microcosm in which everybody can feel at home. The Riders Hotel is a home away from home – for everyone!
