’The LAAX OPEN brings all snowboarders together: the top riders, the amateurs and rising stars, the next generation of jibbers and all the boarder families. It’s a mountain lifestyle affair!’ That’s the idea and motivation of this event expressed by Reto Gurtner, president & CEO of LAAX Skiresort, a passionate freestyler such as his LAAX team, bringing you the LAAX OPEN.
Taking place from January 16 to 21, 2017, the LAAX OPEN wowed once more as the most important snowboarding event in the European mountains. The LAAX OPEN guarantees for an entire week snowboarding at its best including competitions in slopestyle and halfpipe for both, women and men. Music, parties and pow will complete the program to witness the lifestyle of LAAX.
The 2017 competitions are sanctioned by the FIS (Federation Internationale de Ski) and the TTR (Ticket-To-Ride). So the LAAX OPEN 2017 slopestyle and halfpipe contests for women and men are part of the FIS Snowboard Worldcup calendar and of the World Snowboard Tour earning points for the World Snowboarding Points List.
