Four Season Recreation Planning
In 1989, Ecosign was commissioned by Mr. Reto Gurtner, President and CEO of Bergbahnen Crap Sogn Gion, to prepare the first comprehensive Resort Area Master Plan for the classic alpine villages of Laax and Flims, situated in the Canton of Graubünden, Switzerland. Ecosign’s comprehensive study of 12,000 hectares of terrain determined that the Laax -Flims mountain areas could accommodate up to 41,320 skiers per day, but only if substantial improvements were made to existing accommodation and transportation infrastructures in the nearby villages. Ecosign also proposed the construction of a pedestrian-oriented village comprised of 686 new tourist beds for overnight accommodation, in addition to commercial tourist space, meeting space and underground parking stalls.
Ecosign continues to collaborate with Weisse Arena AG through the preparation of major lift installations, new pistes and other mountain amenities and recently completed work on the design of a new 18-hole golf course in the villages of Sagogn and Schluein. The grand opening of the golf course was held in September of 2008.
