Backlip For A T-Shirt? The First Annual Girls Are Awesome Laax Jam Sesh

Take a look at what went down at the first annual Girls Are Awesome Jam Session in Laax last week.

Blessed with bluebird and warm weather, we nabbed a sweet spot at the down tube in the infamous Laax P60 Curnius park for a couple of hours of ‘cash’ for tricks for the first Girls Are Awesome Laax Jam Session. What was rad to see was not only the tricks (was that a switch back 1-50-front 1 out?), but checking out the girls connecting who had peeped each other riding the park over the last couple of seasons but not really hung out. Thanks to the always friendly and open Snowpark Laax crew, Nicki, Momo and Gaia for keeping it chill. Once the beerchips-for-tricks were cashed, we moved on to Girls Are Awesome merch which upped the ante of tricks that were being thrown down. The backlip session was especially funny with most riders taking at least one decent slam.

Once done, we headed down to Indy bar for an afternoon and night of sweet soul, funk and hip hop tunes from Copenhagen’s own DJ asha and a soothing live performance from Diguillotine.

Laax is nice, yo. See you next year.
