Neil Edgeworth Banked Slalom
March 20th - March 22nd
This is the biggest weekend to be a snowboarder at Big White! Every year this Memorial event gets bigger and bigger! This event is so much more than a contest, but a real gathering of all riders young and young at heart!
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 all lost a few along the way like Greg Todds and Craig Kelly. This is a gathering for friends old and new to remember the true soul of the sport.
Come cheer all the competitors on!!
Previous years we had 262 riders gather for this weekend of soulfulness. The Canadian Snowcross National team was there with Olympic gold medalist Maelle Ricker capturing first place in the Pro women and Rob Fagan taking home the gold in the Pro men's division.
Taking part in this historical snowboard event is more about fun and friendship than winning, although there are many prizes to be awarded worth well over $20,000!
|Age groups for Men & Women are:|
|14yrs & under
15yrs to 18yrs
19yrs to 24yrs
25yrs to 34yrs
|35yrs to 44yrs
45yrs to 49yrs
*Helmets are Mandatory for ALL Competitors.
The entry fee for the 18th Annual Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom is $60 for amateurs and $85 for pros. This includes a contest T-shirt, 25% off lift tickets, a banquet dinner, a board draw on Saturday night and final awards on Sunday with many, many draw-prizes to be won!
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.
Don't miss out on being a part of this one of a kind weekend!
