Bad weather has again halted action in Laax ©FIS

Action was cancelled for the second day in a row at the International Ski Federation (FIS) Snowboard World Cup in Laax as bad weather again frustrated.

Men's and women's qualification in both slopestyle and halfpipe was due to be staged today at the Swiss resort.

No action proved possible, however, due to high winds which at one point reached speeds of 100 kilometres per hour.

A revised schedule has not yet been released with slopestyle finals currently scheduled for Friday (January 19) and halfpipe finals for Saturday (January 20).

Slopestyle qualification was brought forward 24-hours to yesterday, in light of the bad weather forecast for today, but that too was cancelled due to heavy snowfall.

The Laax Open has become one of the premier events of the snowboard slopestyle and halfpipe calendar in recent years.

This year's edition marks the final qualifying opportunity for many riders hoping to make their Olympic teams for next month's Games in Pyeongchang.
