6th Annual Sugarloaf Banked Slalom

6th Annual Sugarloaf Banked Slalom

March 19-20, 2016

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

Nothing quite beats hanging out with 225 of your local New England buds 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 sixth annual Banked Slalom on Saturday, March 19th and Sunday, March 20th, 2016. Based on the model of the 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 in each division.

Cost:

The 2016 Sugarloaf Banked Slalom event registration is $50 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.
