The WSF Banked Slalom World Tour launched in October 2014, is an international campaign to promote and celebrate the history of snowboarding. The Tour opened January 10 in Austria with the LIVINGROOM Banked – Vintage Snowboard Days and just ended in April in the USA with the Kirkwood Legendary Banked Slalom.
1667 riders took part in the tour that crossed 8 countries worldwide, with male and female podiums of each event receiving a raffle ticket to win unique prizes: an official entry to the Legendary Mount Baker BSL or a Dupraz snowboard.
The Legendary Mount Baker Banked Slalom is the longest running snowboard event at one resort, held since 1985. It has grown to become the premiere snowboard event each season, bringing hundreds of old and new friends together to ride on some of the best mountains in the world. The course is long, times running over 2 minutes and plenty of banks, rollers, off camber turns, the Legendary Mount Baker Banked Slalom is a challenge for all who enter. Each year, there is a lottery for people who have never been to the event and with only a few hundred entries available, many are disappointed because they didn’t get a spot. The generosity of the Legendary Banked Slalom to give this spot is phenomenal. Enjoy your time in this prestigious event!
In 1984, Serge Dupraz discovered snowboarding. The amazing thrills of riding won him over right away, so he decided to start making his own boards and he is still doing it, in a great and unique way!
