Looking at LAAX and don't know too much about it. Just a couple of reviews I have found, but it seems like a pretty sweet place ~ 6,500 vertical. It's sad but it would cost me just as much to fly to Switzerland as it would to places like Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. Also, cheaper to get to than Whistler. Just don't know how the snow and resorts compare to places over here in the US.

Ummmm, the mountains in Switzerland are generally way bigger and way steeper. There is a reason almost every major ski/snowboard flick has a segment in Europe. The key thing is if they are going to get the snow, which can be said of anywhere. Early season in Europe has been amazing. Austria got something like 2 meters of snow in August. People were making some insane turns for that date.

Snowboarding and skiing are much more of a way of life over the pond than here. Sounds like a fantastic trip. I would go for it.

I have a friend moving back to Switzerland and I very much plan visiting him in the next year or two.

I did a big group trip a few years ago to St. Moritz. The trip there was an awesome 3-hr Swiss Alp drive, then we ended-up in this middle of nowhere town. It was a little too swanky for me, but I had a blast and everything was above timberline! We went towards the end of the season, so the snow was soft and the parties were great. I actually wished I partied less and rode more, but it was quite a time. I am also a fan of the U.S., but switzerland was a totally different experience. HUGE!
