On February 3rd, 2024, adrenaline junkies and snow sport enthusiasts alike gathered at Sugar Bowl Resort for the highly anticipated annual Banked Slalom event. With perfect weather conditions and a fresh layer of powder covering the course, this year’s event promised to be nothing short of spectacular.
The excitement was palpable as participants geared up to tackle the specially crafted ‘snake-run’ style course, designed to challenge their skills and test their agility. Sponsored by a lineup of incredible supporters including @hi5sfoundation, @blackstrap, @rmutruckee, @totallyboardtruckee, @smartwool, @deschutesbrewery, @flylowgear, and @diecutstickersdotcom, the stage was set for an unforgettable day of shredding.
As riders wiggled their way through the banked turns and navigated the rolling terrain, the energy on the slopes was electric. Each participant brought their A-game, carving their way down the course with finesse and determination.
But the Banked Slalom was not just about competition; it was also a celebration of community and camaraderie. Spectators cheered on the riders, reveling in the exhilarating displays of skill and athleticism. And as the day drew to a close, the festivities continued with awards ceremonies and post-race merriment.
However, the true spirit of the event extended beyond the slopes. Proceeds from the Banked Slalom benefitted the High Fives Foundation of Truckee, a testament to the event’s commitment to giving back and supporting worthy causes.
In the end, the 2024 Banked Slalom at Sugar Bowl Resort was more than just a snowboarding competition—it was an epic gathering of passionate individuals united by their love for the mountains and the thrill of the ride.
