Event Format

The Beaver Valley Banked Slalom is open to snowboarders only. The fastest rider to the bottom of the Banked Slalom course wins. Riders will be given 2 timed runs on the course and the best time will be used in the final results. Riders will be disqualified if gates are missed, so hiking up to pass a gate will be permitted. Riders must cross the finish on a flat base to record a finish time. Finish line ollies or tricks may results in a missed time and disqualification.

Awards will be provided to the top three times in each age category (for both men and women), as well as the overall fastest time of the day (for both male & female fastest) and the top three fastest Industry/Shop riders presented by Union Bindings.
