The rocksresort focuses on the conscious use of resources and the environment.

Our energy requirements and the ecological footprint have already been reduced through extensive measures in various areas of the resort.

What are these measures?

Sustainability & Environmental Protection

Reto Gurtner, President and Chairman

At the rockresort in Laax, Reto Gurtner presides over the 224 km of ski and freestyle slopes as well as the resort itself, whose Valser quartzite cubes are heated entirely with renewable energy.

„Sustainability can be simplified with good design“.

In the early days of the ecological movement, in the 1970s, Reto Gurtner’s eyes were opened. When you have to make decisions that affect the whole region, such ideas cannot be emphasized enough.

Our environmental protection measures

energy efficiency

For us, environmental protection goes beyond energy efficiency:

  • Generating electricity from regional hydropower
  • Minergie concept
  • Buildings are built with natural and regional materials
  • Waste is separated and recycled in an environmentally friendly manner
  • Seasonal cuisine and sustainable products
  • Employee clothing is selected according to sustainable criteria
  • E-bikes run on ecologically produced electricity
  • Car Charging stations in the parking garage of the rocksresort

…are just some of the things we pay attention to in everyday life. More about the measures of the region Flims Laax Falera.

As little intervention in nature as necessary

wild bee paradise

The rocksresort has its own habitat for the highly endangered wild bee and other insects – the wild bee paradise. Selected flowers and insect hotels should offer the animals a home, protection and incentive for pollination and reproduction.

Who wants to explore the habitat, does not have to worry by the way: Wild bees do not sting!
