Laax is the biggest and the best snowboard-friendly resort in Europe, perhaps even the world.
It has an excellent Snowpark with the longest halfpipe in the world and a fantastic slopestyle course. It is well equipped with perfect foam pit training facilities and the combination of all of this makes Laax a freestyle Mecca.
The LAAX OPEN, the most important snowboarding contest in Europe brings all snowboarders together:
the top riders, the amateurs and rising stars, the next generation of jibbers and all the boarder families. Unique to LAAX OPEN, is the opportunity for amateurs to compete with snowboarding’s biggest names. Here you will see the next rising stars. Let’s not forget to mention the insane sum of prize money which is worth half a million euros.
It was overwhelming to be part of this amazing sport event.
I watched the halfpipe and slopestyle finals with the top six women and 12 men live. What an unbelievable competition! My respect and huge congratulations goes out to the best of the best who at the end of day took their places on the winner’s podium. In my opinion, LAAX OPEN 2016 was the best contest ever.
