The Full Sail Banked Slalom is back for its 13th season! The conditions this season are amazing, allowing us to run the race in the Tunnel of Love.  The course will maximize and highlight Meadows' natural terrain, with hand-dug berms and challenging technical features. The Full Sail Banked Slalom will be snowboard only and is open to 120 competitors. This is a challenging course and is recommended for intermediate and higher skill levels.

The race is a two-run format with start order TBD by the MHM Race & Competition Crew. Best time counts! Each rider will need to have a release form filled out prior to the event.
