Laax Open 2016 First Impressions

The Laax Open is on and the weather has been all over the place. At times sunny, at times snowy, but the shapers have still done a great job of maintaining a beautiful park. The good news is that the Open format has allowed a lot of our young local riders to progress through to the semi finals. Congrats to Pat Burgener and Victor Ivanov for qualifying for the men’s pipe comp and Nadja Purtschert, Carla Somaini, Verena Rohrer and Sina Candrian for qualifying for the women’s comp.

Photographer Raphael Erhart has been on the scene documenting the action. Check out a few of his impressions of what the setup looks like when the sun is shining.
