SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX

“The Banked in LAAX is like as surf session at the sea!”

The SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX was planned to take place from 5 to 7 March 2021 for the seventh time. Due to the current COVID-19 situation the realization of the 7th edition claims patience. Sustainability and safety of all participants attach importance to all intents and purposes. That’s what the “Banked” in LAAX stands for. From Switzerland's first snowboarders, early international-level competition riders and Olympians to slope runners, park and mini shredders, everybody comes to LAAX to have fun on the winding course on Crap Sogn Gion and to slam down fast times. An inspiring cross-generational snowboard contest! The Banked riders watch out to 2022: back again LAAX.

Location on the mountain

Crap Sogn Gion in direction Plaun. In the middle of permitted nowhere. Hand shovelled banks in natural terrain. Every single turn, every bump in the course will have its own story.

Kids & Juniors

So much cooler than any video game: Kids and teenagers cruise through the course themselves at the Banked. Some joined by dad or mom if they wish so.
