Built on the new Snow & Park area the permanent Cross course will be expertly tweaked and modified by the 2011 British Champion and Team GB coach, James Foster in preparation for the Trespass Cross Championships. The UK's fastest, including Team GB, will be clocking up some serious speed in the hope of stepping up to the podium to claim the coveted British title.
The Trespass Snowboardcross Championships will start the snowboard action on Tuesday 20th March with the hotly contested Skiercross Championships taking place on Wednesday 21st March.
Kicking the week's killer music line-up off on Monday 19th Trespass sponsors BRITS regulars and SCRATCH residents Matt Smooth and DJ Lyley, who'll be joined by special guests Yungun (AKA Essa) and Mr Thing, for an almighty hip hop mash-up.
With a string of collaborations between them, including the likes of Nextmen, Beastie Boys and Guru, UK hip hop heavyweights Yungun and Mr Thing are ready to crank the volume to 11 and rock Laax with their eclectic mix of hip-hop, disco, soul, house, jazz and electronica.
New for 2012 super-swanky watch brand Nooka (www.nooka.com) will be bringing their futuristic selves to The BRITS and blinging up the winners across all disciplines. As if that wasn't enough they'll also be looking out for the 'One To Watch' and offering a sponsorship deal that includes the latest products as and when they are released. The 'One to Watch' will be gifted to the most outstanding unsponsored wrist on the slopes, be that girl, guy, skier or snowboarder, they could be a fully sponsored rider, just not have a watch deal.
Week-packages start from £279* and include seven nights' accommodation, seven day liftpass, festival wristband, and an official BRITS Funi beanie.
