Event Format
The Beaver Valley Banked Slalom is open to snowboarders only. The fastest rider to the bottom of the banked slalom course wins. Riders will be given 2 timed runs on the course and the best time will be used in the final results. Riders will be disqualified if gates are missed, so hiking up to pass a gate will be permitted. Riders must cross the finish on a flat base to record a finish time. Finish line ollies or tricks may result in a missed time and disqualification.

Awards will be provided to the top three times in each age category (for both men and women), as well as the overall fastest time of the day and the top three fastest Industry/Shop riders presented by Union Bindings.

WSF Banked Slalom Tour 2016/17

The WSF Banked Slalom World Tour is back.
Launched in October 2014, the BST is an international campaign to promote and celebrate the history of snowboarding.
In its second edition, more than 1800 riders took part in the tour that crossed 9 countries worldwide with 22 events and the upcoming tour will be even bigger.

About Banked Slalom

Banked slalom combines the roots of snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding.
The past and the future meet in the banked slalom, the original discipline from where everything started. The WSF Banked Slalom Tour concept is to offer a platform and network within currently existing events and support to create new events.
Banked Slalom is an easy way to bring more attention to snowboarding, from the media to new consumers: it is an all-ages discipline, a low risk sport and people have a lot fun competing in contests that do not require professional skills.
