LAAX OPEN 2020 – tag team


The very first LAAX OPEN TAG TEAM Crossover Slopestyle Session took place this winter, a new showcase with freeskiers and snowboarders riding the upper section of the slopestyle course. 6 mixed teams with 3 riders each had to hit the course together and be creative as a team. The true spirit of Freestyle sports was on display, as it was all about having fun riding together with your buddies. Team SERENITY with Fabio Studer (Ski), Maxi Preissinger (Snowboard) and local rider Xeno Lehnherr (Ski) took home the first TAG TEAM title.

Thoughts from our editor.

Mixed events. Wild. But should they be wild? Probably not. Sliding on snow is and always has been about comrade and adrenaline. Not appreciating each other’s sport is a thing of the past. We’re a new generation of snowboarders and ones without judgment. Two planks can be our friends and teammates – at least from my perspective. Sliding on style with style deserves respect. PS. Remember the Gibbons Style Session? We did mixed teams in Canada a few short years ago, maybe we should do it again? Share your thoughts on IG!
