The fifth SUDDENRUSH BANKED SLALOM LAAX HOSTED BY TERJE HAAKONSEN AND NICOLAS MÜLLER takes place from 7 to 10 March 2019. Snowboarders of every age and every trade along with snowboarding fans will celebrate their sport and passion in LAAX, Switzerland, at the fifth annual event.
In the actual race, 400 riders will carve their way around at least 20 banked turns, one after another, trying to find their rhythm, letting themselves be carried away, relishing their battle with the turns. Thrills and burning thighs aplenty! The rider who records the fastest time is the winner. The competition is made up of women, men, children, teens, golden oldies and former pros, as well as active professionals, park and pipe specialists, freestylers, freeriders, alpine racers and boardercross riders. Aside from this, there is also time to try out all the freestyle facilities in LAAX, such as one of the four snow parks, the superpipe or the Freestyle Academy.
The TIDAL art show will showcase works created by snowboard-loving artists. The LAAX lifestyle is tangible all around GALAAXY on the mountain and at rocksresort in the valley. Sounds and films are, of course, also part of the programme.
