SuddenRush LAAX 2018
(LAAX, Switzerland, March 7, 2018) – The fourth edition of the SuddenRush Banked Slalom LAAX took place last weekend in perfect weather conditions. The competitors took on the challenging course featuring 23 banked turns, which the hosts Nicolas Müller and Terje Haakonsen personally shaped over days of hard work. 300 participants ranging in age from 6 to 62, including pro snowboarders, legends from yesteryear, snowboard enthusiasts and the next generation, took to the start with great commitment and passion.
The Banked Slalom has been experiencing a major boom in recent years. Perhaps also because it is so close to the origins of snowboarding. Banked Slalom is a journey back to the past, a meeting of old and new friends, of young and aged people. Banked Slalom is an event for everyone and is based on the principles of fun, good vibes and great atmosphere with a little competitive spirit in all of us.
Nicolas Müller sums it up:
‘The SuddenRush Banked Slalom in LAAX is the event of the year for me! Everybody is really competing against themselves. You want to take each turn as well as you can, and that’s what’s so great about it. For me, the best thing is that everybody goes home smiling from ear to ear!’
