Come on out and join the greater Sugarloaf snowboard community for a truly fun, high-fiving event!

Nothing quite beats hanging out with 200 of your local New England homies at Sugarloaf for one of the East's last snowboard-only events! Snowboarders will unite to celebrate the growth of the sport and to rip it up by many definitions of the phrase. Sugarloaf will host the fourth annual Banked Slalom on Saturday, March 15th and Sunday, March 16th, 2014. Based on the model of the Legendary Mt. Baker Banked Slalom, the Sugarloaf Banked Slalom is an open-registration event, featuring a course of banked-turns, winding its way down Sugarloaf's iconic East Coast terrain.

The objective is simple: the fastest rider to the bottom wins.

Details:

Sugarloaf is hosting the Banked Slalom as a 2-day event. There are 200 total spots for the Banked Slalom. We believe our spots will sell out, so be sure to register right away.

Since the event will be a 2-days, riders will have the chance at 2 runs on Saturday and another 2 on Sunday, taking the best time from each day. The best two runs on Saturday and Sunday will decide a racers position in the finals.  

Cost:

The 2014 Sugarloaf Banked Slalom event registration is $40 and will include a goodie bag from event sponsors, an event t-shirt courtesy of LL Bean and course access, etc. This does not include a lift ticket. Lift tickets for Banked Slalom riders on Saturday and Sunday will be discounted to only $30 per day. So, if you don't have a pass, your total for the event weekend will be $100. Tickets may only be purchased as a two-day pass for $60 total. Tickets may be purchased at Saturday registration ONLY.

Lodging:

Event particpants can get lodging discounts in Sugarloaf rental properties for the event by calling 1-800-THE-LOAF. Just mention that you're heading to the area for the Banked Slalom and get the discount! Check out some of the Loaf's rental properties here: Sugarloaf Lodging

Format:

The Sugarloaf Banked Slalom is open to snowboarders only. Since the event will be 2-days, riders will have the chance at 2 runs on Saturday and another 2 on Sunday, taking the best time. Racers will also have the opportunity for course inspection and practice on Saturday morning from 8:00 am - 9:30 am. Awards will be handed out to the top three overall times for Men and Women, and the top three times in each age category (for both men and women). Racers who take home the overall spots will be removed from their divisional chase. Therefore, overall champs will not be considered for divisional standings.
