The Brits 2009 Gears up for 20th Annual Championships

One of our favourite events in the snowboarding calendar, The Brits, will be celebrating its 20th Birthday this year when it returns to Laax, Switzerland from the 28th March – 4th April 2009 for an unmissable winter week. Fresh from a pre-Brits reccy out to Laax, Soul Sports chief, Stu Brass reports back on the brand new resort development and epic early season snow conditions…

“Laax has undergone a brand new development in resort, the Rocksresort, which has already been given a design award and will give the resort and the Brits an ultra modern twist, including new shops, restaurants and accommodation options,” says Stu. “The amazing snow conditions and the 40-inch base layer promises for a long season and will help to create yet another amazing snow park and freestyle arena that Laax and the Brits are renowned for.”

As well as fun winter festival, The Brits also plays host to the prestigious British Snowboard and Freeski Championships that unites rookies, pros and Olympic-standard shredders. The Championship action comes courtesy of the Trespass Snowboardcross/Skiercross, Quiksilver Big Air, Animal Slopestyle and SNO!zone Halfpipe.
