Big White is proud to host and celebrate the 24th year of the Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom. 

The Inland Snowboard Big White Banked slalom first began in 1987. When Neil passed away in an avalanche in France in 1997, we started this memorial event. We have lost other good friends along the way, like Greg Todds and Craig Kelly.  This event is a gathering of all riders, young and young at heart, old friends and new friends to remember the true soul of the sport! 

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 has to offer.

This is the best weekend to be a snowboarder at Big White; join the community on Facebook.
