Riders Palace, Laax
This fun and affordable base beckons snowboarders to the slopes of Laax. It’s managed by the group behind the new Freestyle Academy – Europe’s first indoor training hall, where skaters, bikers and boarders can test their skills on a series of daring ramps. Rooms come as dorms, doubles or spacious suites, with plasma televisions, PlayStations and playful design throughout. For a slice of après-ski, hit the Riders Palace Club, which has recently had DJs John Doe and Digitalism take to the decks.
