Freestyle snowboarding at its finest that's what Laax is all about.
Being a leading freestyle resort in the Alps and committed to the progression of snowboarding since day one, Laax runs the longest continuous halfpipe in the world, which recently got updated to 24ft walls as well as an Olympic-size kicker pro-line plus a total of over 90 obstacles, all spread across four snow parks.
After celebrating a perfect comeback as World Cup host in the 2016-17 season, Laax, an official training base for the Swiss snowboarders since 2013 and home of the European Open from 2005 till 2015, is back on the calendar with the famous LAAX OPEN again.
And while the superpipe at Crap Sogn Gion and the world-class slopestyle course on 2,250 metres a.s.l. are state of the art, the gaLAAXy has also been under construction to meet the needs of the riders in the upcoming winter.
