Laax is to Switzerland what Mammoth is to California – a freestyle Mecca that attracts riders from far and wide to its perfectly sculpted parks and pipes. Although Laax trades on the reputation of its parks, there’s a whole lot more to it than that. While the gentle slopes around the central Crap Sogn Gion can’t compete with say Chamonix or Verbier for sheer gnarliness, they’re littered with cliffs, rock drops and other features that turn Laax into a backcountry freestyle paradise when there’s fresh snow around. It says a lot that Nicolas Müller, widely recognised as one of the world’s best backcountry riders, has chosen to make his home here.
