The European Freeski Open in Laax has become an integral part of the freeski scene during the last six years. Although the event is one of the top events of the sport of freeskiing and the interest of its riders and media has continously grown, the funding of the European Freeski Open has always challenged the organizers.

Due to a lack of financial commitment by sponsors, an economically arguable realization of an event of this size and standard is no longer possible.

A big thank-you goes out to all the riders, sponsors and everyone who has supported the European Freeski Open over the last six years.

RIP European Open
