This Mecca of Euro freestyle doesn’t offer just one snowpark, Laax offers four around the Crap Sion Gion, meaning there’s a wide spectrum of possibilities for every level.

With sunshine all day long, a length of 1000m and around 25 jumps, rails and boxes for all levels of difficulty, it’s no surprise that Snowpark Curnius is one of the most popular freestyle runs in Europe, and the one you can see in every magazine and online edit. No Name Park is home to the new 200m Superpipe and the Minipipe, and with the new kicker pro line in Curnius combined with the beginner line and the intermediate Ils Plauns park, Laax offers all you need to go from rookie to pro.

With all this prime quality freestyle focus, it’s no surprise Laax hosts many heavy events like the Burton European Open. Off the hill, the Freestyle Academy, Europe’s first indoor freestyle training center, offers skate ramps, trampolines and kicker facilities and year-round fun and training area.

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

“Laax means home for me. I learned how to snowboard on this hill, I learned every single step to become a pro snowboarder here. The Curnius, or P60 park, is my favorite: it’s a long slope with many different options, starting with four big jumps and ending with little corners, quarter pipes and tons of different rails! At the bottom it is hard to remember which tricks you did, because there are so many obstacles on the way down! I love to ride here in Laax, because of the quality of the parks and because of the great atmosphere around the hill!” – Sina Candrian
