Banked Slalom Open

SuddenRush LAAX 2nd to 4th March 2018

The SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX will take place from March 2-4, 2018. In its fourth edition this contest, hosted by snowboarding legends Terje Haakonsen & Nicolas Müller, has again the main message on having fun together in the snow. The banked slalom is the archetype of snowboarding which combines high speeds with challenging terrain and banked turns, and is sure to bring together snowboarders of all generations and different riding styles. The event is further complemented with music and entertainment at and around the Indy Bar in the rocksresort and the relaunched Riders Hotel. Parallel TIDAL, an art show in the alps, will run in the Riders Hotel Lobby, celebrating the diverse creativity in the worlds of art and snowboarding.

Race Office

Wear your Bib number clearly visible on your front leg. Make sure that the timing crew in the finish area gets to see or know your number, no matter what happened.

Race format

Due to the open format everyone gets the chance to participate at the SuddenRush Banked Slalom. 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 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 Friday. Ride the course, as often as possible and help us to get the best setup ready for the race on Saturday.

Accommodation
