Excitement is growing fast upon winter’s forthcoming arrival and preparations for the 2014 Burton European Open (BEO) are about to begin in LAAX, Switzerland. Scheduled for January 13-19, this season’s BEO will be the last relevant contest in Europe before the Winter Olympic Games, therefore the last chance for many riders to qualify for Sochi 2014.
 
Presented by MINI and held in LAAX for the 10th consecutive year, the BEO is Europe’s most prestigious snowboard event and features every year more than 300 riders coming from all over the world. In a true open event spirit, amateurs and pros will battle each other on top of Crap Sogn Gion mountain to reach the BEO’s finals after a snowboard week at its best.

 

Planned for Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th, Slopestyle and Halfpipe finals will witness the best 6 female and 10 male snowboarders competing for the Burton European Open titles, 125.000$ prize-money and a last-minute ticket to Olympic glory.

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.”
