Burning Boots Banked Slalom to take place 7th – 8th March 2020

Burning Boots Banked Slalom is back this season for another set of mayhem turns and good times. The event will take place at Munich’s home resort Brauneck (just 70 km from the city) from the 7th to the 8th March 2020.

The event is special not only because of the location close to the city of Munich, but also because of the number of grommets you meet at the start. There is a well-working cooperation with Snowboard Germany, BSV and the Shred Kids to support the next generation of snowboarders. This is a unique thing for a banked slalom which makes Burning Boots a speciality within the snowboard races in the area.

Last season saw the second edition of Burning Boots and there were already 120 riders from 10 different nationalities participating which took the event to the international level. More riders are expected at this year’s edition, so don’t hesitate and get more information on the official website.

The starting fees are: 20€ / adult and 10€ / kid (under 15 years of age). You can register here.

The Nitro Open as part of the WST encourages local riders to participate in competitions. The spirit of everyone having fun riding together is the motivation that makes everyone go out and ride – everyone was a winner that day in our eyes!

The official season opening event in China saw -despite being a Male only SS – some awesome Ladies shredding in the park: Sun Zhendong, Cheryl Yang Rui, Wang Nan and Yu Yang. Celebrating World Snowboard Day, the 10th anniversary no less, was on everyone’s mind that weekend at Lake Songhua.
