Banked Slalom 2017

We go back to the roots in LAAX, when we host the SuddenRush Banked Slalom. The banked slalom, one of the classic disciplines of snowboarding, will be presented by two of snowboarding’s icons, Terje Haakonsen and Nicolas Müller, who are both renowned for their creative and individual styles. Snowboarding is not mainly linked with a competitive mindset but rather a unique way of life. As a result, the Banked Slalom is the getting together of like-minded people who enjoy having fun and who share the love of snowboarding.
