Laax Open 2020

The LAAX OPEN, Europe’s most prestigious Snowboard event, was taking place from January 13th – 18th, 2020. LAAX, known as the most progressive resort in Europe when it comes to Freestyle sports, was once again the center of attention for the global Snowboarding community and provided a week to remember for all participants and spectators.

I have always been a big fan of the ski area Laax/Flims and of course also of the Laax Open. This was also the reason for my interest in this event and therefore I reached out to the team behind the event. Normally it's not possible to get any accreditation for freelance photographers, which only shows the importance of the contest and also how lucky I was for getting a view behind the scenes. This was one the biggest events I had taken photos of at this time and I learned a lot by hanging around professionals.
