Thanks to everyone who came out for the 1st Annual Boreal Banked Slalom & Brewfest!
Celebrating 50 years ain’t easy. It has to be big, memorable and most importantly, FUN! Boreal Mountain Resort nailed all objectives by hosting the first annual Boreal Banked Slalom & Brewfest. A costumed snowboard and ski race to benefit the High Fives Foundation, a Tahoe-based 501.c.3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community.
Legendary shred Lane Knaack and his park crew hand built the course with love, sweat and tears that stretched from the top of the mountain down through the halfpipe and into the park. Tahoe’s finest showed up to pay homage to home of the original terrain park, Jibasic park including Chris Roach, Roan Rogers, Nate Holland, Mike Laroche and Cody LaPlante.
From sun-up to sundown, the party raged all weekend-long with five live bands on the deck overlooking the course. Through the music, beers and shredding, we raised almost $5,000 for charity and have decided it will be an annual event. Big thanks to all our sponsors for helping make this happen.
