Start saving your returnables and stacking your change, Snowpark Laax has provided even more reason to cross the Atlantic next spring (more video and photos proof of how epic Laax is). Last April, the Laax park crew, along with locals, pros, legends, and more ended the season the best way possible, with a heap of partyboarding. There’s few things better than spring shred, and this Euro crew did it up right with plenty of laps, a plethora of homies and some solid BBQing thrown in for good measure. The line up of boarders that rolled through the “Crap Sogn Gion” park was seriously heavy: Nicolas Mueller, Tor Lundstrom, Kevin Backstrom, Gian Simmen, David Habluetzel, James Niederberger and more take the mainstage and put on a show in the Swiss Alps. As we said, start saving your cash now, springtime at Laax looks damn good.
The crew around Snowpark Laax decided to throw themselves a little afterparty once the season wrapped up at Europe’s prime freestyle resort. During the last two weeks of April, in the heat of spring, a small group of like-minded fun-loving people gathered around the playground dubbed “Crap Sogn Gion” to snowboard, film, shoot, BBQ, tan, and have a good time. As a result, a short film appropriately AFTERPARTY, is now here to grace your eyes with 20 minutes of pure fun snowboarding in the sun. Featuring the talents of legends like Nicolas Mueller and Gian Simmen, Laax team riders like David Habluetzel and Severin Van Der Meer, park shapers like Luca Kuppelwieser and Jah Harris, former shapers like Joos Caviezel and James Niederberger, and appearances by Scandinavian Terror Twins Tor Lundstrom and Kevin Backstrom, and their Swiss sidekick, Max Buri – to name a few – there’s no shortage of great folks in this flick. Kick your feet up, sit back, relax, and enjoy!
