Slash and Berm Banked Slalom returns

Friday, March 1- Sunday, March 3 at 8 a.m.—KILLINGTON—Killington Resort, Darkside Snowboards, and Burton are teaming up once again for the 10th Annual Slash & Berm Banked Slalom. Snowboarders will gather at The Stash terrain park in Killington to take advantage of the natural terrain and all the creative elements the mountain has to offer for a great cause.

This year, all proceeds from the event will be donated to the Friends of Rutland skatepark. The Friends of Rutland skatepark is an organization dedicated to building a concrete skatepark in the city of Rutland.

The action will start on Friday with a shop team invite-only banked slalom event—local shops will enter teams to compete for the Slash & Berm Banked Slalom title. The action continues on Saturday, when the event is open to all snowboarders and will be timed individually.

New for this year:

 Groms (snowboarders ages 13 & under) will be able to test their chops alongside the adults in The Stash on Saturday! Additionally, instead of the Just for Fun run, is a switch run during the afternoon on Saturday. This will only be open to the first 50 participants who sign up!

The action concludes on Sunday with the Grom Slalom event (for competitors ages 13 & under), which will take place in the Lil’ Stash at Ramshead.


  • Grom Boys (13 & under)
  • Grom Girls (13 & under)
  • Open Men 13+
  • Open Women 13+
  • Legends Men 40+
  • Legends Women 40+


This competition is for snowboarders only. Due to the course location, there will be no spectator area on Friday or Saturday. Each participant must wear a properly fastened snow sports helmet during all event practice, inspection and competition.

Scope it out. Make a habit of course/venue inspection before every event. Know your limits (skill and ability levels) and stay within them. This isn’t the time to try something you’ve never done before.

Friday: four team members will take wo runs each. Top three individual times are combined for best time: One missed gate results in a disqualified run.

Saturday: Best of two runs; one missed gate results in a disqualified run.


Killington Resort will host all three days of the event, and we are looking for volunteer to help in 3 key areas: Registration, Gate Checkers and Runners. Volunteers will receive a lift ticket to return to Killington for every shift worked. Lift tickets earned are valid 1 year from the date they are received. Lunch will also be provided for each shift worked. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.

Sign-up is on a first-come, first-served basis and you will be e-mailed a confirmation upon sign-up.
