Heaven on earth for freestylers

Those who already know LAAX or have read about it will know that LAAX is the freestyle paradise of Europe. LAAX is also one of the top freestyle resorts in the world.

In addition to four snow parks and the world’s largest mountain halfpipe, the freestyle hotspot also features the Freestyle Academy, Europe’s first indoor freestyle arena.

Activities

The Freestyle Academy in LAAX is the first Freestyle indoor hall

Europe’s first freestyle hall in LAAX is the place to be for beginners, the advanced and professionals – whether on snowboard or skis, skateboards or bikes. Set over 1,200 square metres, the Freestyle Academy provides optimum training facilities.

Highlights of the hall include the spacious trampoline area, the skate bowl and microramp, the Snowflex practice slope, the Big Air with four jumps of various heights and an airbag for a soft landing. The Freestyle Academy means freestyle fun the whole year round and whatever the weather, and with a host of courses, training sessions and camps on offer, there is plenty more action and variety to enjoy – perfectly in keeping with the motto: come by, try something new, enjoy yourself and meet people.

On the Big Air (1), there is a sharp descent, either on snowboard or skis, before the jump over a kicker (jumping platform). Freestyle fans can practise their tricks and jumps high up in the air – and come down to earth safely in the 15metre-long, 2-metre-deep Airbag (2).

The Snowflex practice area (3) is the ideal place to prepare for the jumps over the kicker. Freestylers can get used to manoeuvring on the carpet-like surface, which is modelled on the snow conditions at the resort. The practice area also features a box for even more fun and the room to let rip.

The Freestyle Academy’s trampoline area (5) is guaranteed to get the adrenaline pumping. This is the place to develop better body control and orientation for future tricks. Air-filled cushions (bag jumps) ensure that training is safe and a soft landing guaranteed. So there is no reason not to try even the most complicated tricks.

Skaters are also more than welcome in the Freestyle Academy. Skating action in the bowl (6) with a variety of heights, angles and corners is sure to put a smile on any skater’s face. A street skate area (8) and a microramp (4) round off the skating area.

The Freestyle Academy also boasts a boulder climbing wall (9) for free climbers, as well as a kids room (10), in which the one- to five-year-olds can let themselves go. On Sunday morning, the entire hall is transformed into an adventure playground for the very youngest guests: all the Flying Ants aged six and under, when accompanied by an adult, are free to let their hair down throughout the whole hall.

Above the trampoline area, a café (7), the hot spot of the Indoor Base, offers a perfect view as well as Italian coffee specialities.
