2016 Laax Open Gallery

When the rumours that The BEO might not be happening developed into fact, a panic started to brew from media, industry heads and riders alike. The thought of not attending the best resort in Europe for a week of spectacular riding was a grim prospect. The annoucement of a newly formed Laax Open event, which included an enhanced prize purse bought much relief to everyone connected with the sport.

Regular readers of this site will know how much we love the resort of Laax. Time and time again we are blown away at just how on point the owners, shapers and conditions are. When so many resorts have snowboarding as a marketing afterthought, it’s refreshing to see a 100% focus on snowboarding.

Without futher ado, here is a selection of images from an outstanding first event, one that we hope to continue way into the future.
