LAAX, March 15, 2019. After some racing action racing with snowboard legend Terje Haakonsen through the banked course at the SuddenRush Banked Slalom last Sunday, LAAX is coming up with the next freestyle contest for kids and juniors: the KIDS LAAX OPEN. This event is the younger counterpart of the well-known Snowboard World Cup event LAAX OPEN scheduled in January. One crucial difference to the “older brother”: On top competitions in halfpipe and slopestyle are also held for freeskiers!

 

“Anything the adults can do, we can do, too!” say the mini-shredders, who are looking to leave the minipipe behind and lay claim to the superpipe for their competition. LAAX, the number one freestyle resort, is pleased to be of service here since 2018, and also is laying on a diverse slopestyle course for the KIDS LAAX OPEN on March 16-17, 2019. This is a must for all ambitious freeskiers and snowboarders aged 0 to 17.
300 starts by hundreds of mini-shredders from near and far will light up the Crap Sogn Gion with their performances. To continue the action in the valley, it’s on to the Freestyle Academy LAAX, the mother of this event.
