Big White is proud to host & celebrate 21 years of the Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom Event.  Last year we hosted a record number of riders so make sure that you register early to get a spot in this year's event.

Although there are many prizes to be awarded (worth well over $20,000!), taking part in this historical snowboard event is more about fun and friendship than winning.

This is the best weekend to be a snowboarder at Big White!  Every year this Memorial event gets bigger and bigger. This event is a real gathering of all riders, young and young at heart. Join our community on Facebook.

The Inland Snowboard Big White Banked slalom first began in 1987. When Neil passed away in an avalanche in France we started this memorial event. We have lost other good friends along the way, like Greg Todds and Craig Kelly, and this event is a gathering for friends old and new to remember the true soul of the sport.

Age groups for Men & Women are:

14yrs & under
15yrs to 18yrs
19yrs to 24yrs
25yrs to 34yrs

35yrs to 44yrs
45yrs to 49yrs
50yrs +
Snow Skates M/F combined

*Helmets are Mandatory for ALL Competitors.
A single run format gets you one timed run on Saturday and one timed run on Sunday. Your best run counts as your time for the weekend. We like to run the event in this format, so everyone gets the same amount of runs, and everyone is around for the whole weekend to have fun and enjoy all Big White Ski Resort has to offer.

There is more to the Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom than just the competition, make sure you join in all the festivities. Friday we will be kicking things off with a Check In Party in Happy Valley Day Lodge from 7PM- 10PM. Then on Saturday night we wish to host you all for a banquet dinner from 6PM and then join us Sunday from 4PM for the awards ceremony.  

Limited spots available. Please contact for more information.  

More information coming soon
