Banked Slalom | Season Pass

Mt. Baker in Washington’s Cascade Range is as important to snowboarding as any other place in the world. One of the first resorts to welcome snowboarders, it was also the home mountain of freeriding pioneer Craig Kelly. Now in its 32nd year, Mt. Baker’s Legendary Banked Slalom event is a who’s who reunion of the top snowboarders on the planet. Unlike any other snowboard competition out there, it draws all types of riders - from halfpipe and big air specialists to backcountry freeriders and boardercross champs. Amateurs and pros come together to test their skills on this jagged course with unique features like the infamous “toilet bowl”. With variable conditions and giant berms to navigate, it’s full on survival riding. Carnage is to be expected. There’s no prize money involved – just duct tape, quirky trophies, and bragging rights. Two-time Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott is here with buddy Rob Kingwill to compete against other top riders and reconnect with the soul of snowboarding.
