Banked slalom is one of the oldest disciplines in snowboarding and the Swiss resort Laax is hosting this classic event from 6th-8th of March. The banked turns vary in size and the gates are positioned in the middle. They originated over 25years ago and allowed snowboarders to perform quick turns even then, despite the edges oft he boards and bindings not being as advanced as they are today.
