Yet another successful spring session went down in Laax last week, perhaps the slushiest one yet! As per usual the legendary Snowpark Laax shapers had the Curnius park dialed in with a sick setup, including a kick ass mini pipe, a ridiculous kicker, various jibs, bonks and side hits, and everything in between. The weather held up nicely most of the time, Cafe NoName was packed with locals and foreigners, beers were flowing, burgers tasted better than ever, the riding was on another level, and apparently the parties were insane. Just good old fun in the sun to cap off another weird season! Here’s a couple snappers for all to enjoy:
Tube or doghouse… decisions, decisions. Max, Luca, Gweli and Men before dropping in.
Simon Le Fevre exhibits some “proper” racing technique
Nicolas Müller, Reto Kestenholz, Levi Luggen und viele andere Legenden, Pros, Photographen und leidenschaftliche Snowboarder trafen sich letzten Samstag in Bellwald (VS) um am ersten “Home Run – invitational banked slalom presented by nnim clothing & hä?” teilzunehmen.
The NineQueens event in Livigno, Italy last weekend was an absolute pleasure to witness. A perfectly shaped castle, a setup like I never had seen before, girls from all over the world riding skis and snowboards, showing off style and innovation. It was an incredible weekend, and after spending a week at my regular boring job, I’ve finally found time to sit down and write a little more about it. Also featuring words by Isabel Derungs and Elena Koenz from Switzerland, telling us a thing or two about the event. I was only present for two days, but they gave me a bit more insight to what had happened during the week.
The Schneestern shapers once again pulled out all the stops for the 9Queens event. This years all-girls session featured both a ski and snowboard comp mixed into one. The setup included two massive kickers, one transfer kicker in the middle of a halfpipe, quarters and rails. Insanity at its best!
Could anyone ask for anything more?
