FAQs

Bro, Is this the Oympics?
No it is not. We aim to provide a quality and affordable competition in an effort for our skiers and riders to push and pursue their goals on the moutain. These competitions garner a wide spectrum of skill sets, and will offer features to suit that spectrum of riders across our banked slalom courses.
Our awards ceremony is based on recognizing our winners, but focusing on a raffle that can benefit all competitors. Most competitors leave awards with prizes valued far beyond their entry fee (thanks again to our great sponsors).
