Summer 2018 began very early on May 10, 2018, with the Ascension Weekend. The beautiful weather and the warm temperatures at the beginning of the season already attracted many mountain goers to our region. Due to the mostly dry and warm weather, that characterised the entire summer and autumn of 2018, we clearly exceeded the first-time admissions of every month, the previous year as well as the average of the last 5 years. Ultimately, we achieved a new first-time admission record with 130,789 quests, an increase of 26,201 when compared to last year’s summer.
The 2018/2019 winter season began as planned on November 3. Although the preseason did not spoil us with good snow or weather, the transition from weekend to daily operation also took place as planned at the beginning of December. After business during the holidays went very well, the large amount of snowfall in January guaranteed optimal snow and slope conditions until the end of the season. During the second part of the winter season, our guests profited from abundant sunshine and excellent slope conditions, which allowed the slopes to the Laax and Flims valley stations to remain open until 22 April. The great conditions also influenced the number of guests this season. The first time admissions between February and April clearly exceed the previous year, as well as being above the average of the last 5 years. With a total of 896,582 first-time admissions, we exceeded the previous year’s numbers by 6.1% and the multi-year average by 12.5%.
