7th to 10th March 2019

SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX

The event-hosts Nicolas Müller and Terje Haakonsen invite for the fifth time for the SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX to celebrate the archetype of snowboarding. Isn't there anything better, than spending unforgettable days on the mountain? Therefore the 2019 edition will already start on Thursday. From March 7 to 10 it's time to race, to cheer and of course to have fun in, on and with the snow. In the valley, Indy Bar at rocksresort and Riders Hotel provide musical entertainment. One of the culture part during the SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX is TIDAL, an Art show in the alps, where artists will exhibit their snowboarding inspired works at Riders Club on Friday March 8.

Location on the mountain

The new 2018 location on the right-hand side from the slope P66 from Crap Sogn Gion down to Plaun has convinced. Same location for 2019 with new banks shaped by Nicolas Müller, Terje Haakonsen and a lot of enthusiastic helpers. So every single one of the steep turns has its own story.

Race format

Due to the open format everyone gets the chance to participate at the SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX. Every rider gets two runs - the best one counts.

Kids & Juniors

Parts of the course are pretty serious. Check the course with your kids and make sure they are up for it. Parents may go on course with their kids and do the race together. Parents who do so, have to make sure not to trigger the timing in the finish in order to not mess up their kids timing.

Fakie Race

If you want to do the Fakie challenge on Sunday, bring your bib number from Friday or Saturday and be there at 12.30 pm. Registration right on site.

Training & course preparations

We invite every competitor to show up for training on Thursday. Ride the course, as often as possible and help us to get the best setup ready for the race on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Accommodation
