Banked Slalom LAAX - It’s that time again!

For what? For turns, snowboards, and speeds. For fast times and good ones,

and lots of fun on and off the piste!

On the 2nd and 3rd of March 2024, the Banked Slalom will take place in Laax for

the 9th time. The most original contest discipline in snowboarding, attracting

hundreds to Laax, the resort that has been synonymous with snowboard culture worldwide since 1986. Anyone who wants to actively take part in the winding race can now register online.

Pick up speed on every banked turn and carry it into the next turn, curve by curve towards the finish and the colourful field of participants: carefree children, ambitious ex-pros, tricky freestylers, speedy teenagers, elegant catwomen or the local experts from snowparkLAAX. Fonda thighs are generally an advantage and cheering at the start is just as typical as applause for everyone at the finish.

On Saturday, the Open (18-39 years), Masters (40 years+) and Pros categories will start at

10 a.m. The award ceremony at the rocksresort at 5 p.m. will segue into an evening of celebration in the valley. Vegetarian dinner in the Riders Hotel followed by DJ Crissi in the Indy Bar (from 9.30 p.m.) or the Schmusi Kollektiv in the Riders Club (from 10 p.m.). Sunday is traditionally a day for the kids where girls and boys start in three age groups from

11 a.m. on the same course as the adults the day before. Also in 2024, the Banked Slalom LAAX will conclude with the Fakie Race. Whether small, medium or large – everyone is equal and there is only one category: The fastest rider to complete the course backwards on a snowboard wins the trophy!

Sustainability has always played an important role at this cross-generational event: from the

use of materials to bib numbers and trophies, to those lasting moments cherished by the 300- plus participating riders and fans of the event. The countdown has begun for 2024, when on the weekend of 2-3 March it will be that time again.
