The Room-Change won't be too complicated since the Riders-Palace is just beside the Gondola-Station and the Laax Staff will bring all your luggage from the Mountain Hostel to the Riders Palace. You'll just have to put it on the Gondola-Cart, the Staff will do the complete Transfer.

Why you should be there

Check out what the mountain and the event is offering:

Once a year, the TYPO3 community meets in the Alps for a week of fun in the snow. The difference to the other two T3* events is, that the focus during the Snowboard Tour lies on sports, fun and socializing. But of course, TYPO3 is a big topic. There will be nights of nerding and days of outdoor fun. If you want to catch the spirit of the TYPO3 community, look no further and get registered! Places can be very quick to fill up!

In this time of the season (January) we expect lots lots of powder and less people. In January you don't have any scheduled school holidays in Switzerland, so this will be quite a good time on the slopes. We yould be happy to get your ideas and inputs for any activities you'd be interested during the week, like taking boarding lessons or go on a tour with a guide, do some ice-hockey or whatever.... just put your ideas on the mailing list, i'll try to take care of it:

Laax is the place to be:

Laax just received an award for "Switzerland's Best Ski Resort" from the organisation World Ski Awards. You get more information here.
