Banked Slalom takes snowboarding back to its roots

STRATTON—A return to outdoor events is slated to celebrate the simplicity of strapping in and carving through the snow and fresh Green Mountain air. The 2021 Banked Slalom, hosted by Stratton Mountain Resort, is back on March 13-14.

The Vermont Open presents the 2021 Banked Slalom, a two-day event open to 200 Vermont-based athletes, split into seven age divisions.

Riders will give it their all in a downhill slalom course featuring berms, bumps, jumps, and rollers twisting down East Byrnes Side. With one rider on the course at a time, participants will be individually timed on their run, and the fastest times per age group at the end of the weekend will go home with a trophy and additional prizes. Each of the seven age divisions will have first, second, and third-place finishers recognized, with the first-place rider in each age division receiving a custom Vermont Open edition  Never Summer snowboard.

Per Vermont Ski Area Association guidelines, candidates are only eligible to participate if they fit one of the following categories below:

The rider has a verifiable Vermont address

The rider is a member of a snowboard club that is based in Vermont

The rider is a student at a Vermont academy ski/snowboard school. Students are eligible to participate and should list their school as their address

Registration is now open at stratton.com/things-to-do/events/the-vermont-open.
