Burton European Open 2008

From January 11 – 18, 2008 international top riders will fly into the Swiss top resort LAAX. This year’s theme will be “BEO Airlines”. For 500 riders this means to take off in the disciplines Halfpipe and Slopestyle.


Pipe and park will wait perfectly tuned on Crap Sogn Gion at 2200 m altitude, to challenge pros as much as amateur-pilots and to promote progressive snowboarding. First Class organisation is guaranteed at the TTR 6 Star Event due to the experienced partners Burton Snowboards and LAAX. No matter if you fly Economy or Charter, riders from all over the world will land at the Burton European Open 2008, from all contest series and all age groups. The best of the best will be rewarded in the finals of the men and women with a prize-money of US$ 125.000. All participants will earn international ranking-points for the destinations TTR (Ticket to Ride World Tour) and BGOS (Burton Global Open Series).

No matter if World Champion, rookie or fan – all passengers can expect not only sports highlights at the BEO 2008, but also a variety of side events at the landing strips mountain “Crap Sogn Gion” and valley “Riders Palace”. You can book packages in time for Europe’s biggest Snowboard event at

The BEO 2008 crew wishes you a pleasant flight into the winter 2007/08!

Laax, Switzerland

Snowboard Guide rating 9 out of 10 “Excellent snowsure resort with a good long season. The slopes are great for freestylers and freeriders alike, as well as suiting beginners. The resort can be slack at opening lifts and the off-piste gets tracked out within hours of a dump.”
