Building on four successful years as one of Canada’s largest annual snowboard gatherings, the 2017 edition of the Beaver Valley Banked Slalom promises to be the best yet!
While it may be one of the leading North American stops on the World Banked Slalom Tour, the Beaver Valley Banked Slalom is a laid back, super cool contest that celebrates snowboard culture like few others while raising thousands of dollars for Leukemia Research in memory of Beaver Valley snowboarder Jackie Snarr.
The Beaver Valley Banked Slalom is truly one of the only events in Canada where you will find shred “legends” from park, pipe, boardercross and race riding together and alongside the best “groms” and industry icons.
Where a shred legend will kick your ass riding a 20 year old retro board. And where staff from your local shop compete against staff from your local park.
Where the rider drinking a “Mad Jack” beer next to you on the deck at the afternoon apres might be the Team Manager of one of the biggest companies in snowboarding. Where kids compete against their dads and moms. Where the “ski” racks at the base lodge are 100% filled with snowboards!
Where there are more people riding Beaver Valley’s awesome park runs than it’s groomed trails. Where the afternoon bbq, beers and bands are more important than the awards ceremony!
You can expect something new and cool every year at the Beaver Valley Banked Slalom.This year look for a fun Hip Jump session, Burton Riglet Park for the mini-shreds, Carve of Day contest, Puddle Jump and Jibs galore in the Park! Live bands on the snow featuring the “Foremast Jacks”!
There are tons of charity prize draws supported by the leading brands in snowboarding including Capita, Union, Vans, 686, Arbor, Burton, Ride, K2, Zeal, Dragon, VZ, ThirtyTwo, Beaver Wax and more! Plus special accolades for the top shop and industry rep riders courtesy of “Union Bindings”. And coveted jugs of Beaver Valley maple syrup for all podium winners sponsored by “Kawartha Metals”! No wonder the Beaver Valley Banked Slalom sells out every year with 250 riders!
