Beech Mountain Banked Slalom
Saturday, February 25th, 2017
Sharpen your edges and wax your skis or snowboards and of course pick out your best 80’s onesie! Beech Mountain Banked Slalom, North Carolina’s ultimate test of speed & skill on the snow will return to Beech for the fifth year in a row!
The need for speed…
The course will be moved over to Robin’s Run in 2017. Same great event, yet more speed & more fun. Racers will shred berms, hips, slash walls, and doubles to catch some air! After runs participants can kick back on the slopeside patio of our 5506′ sky bar and watch all the action while drinking a delicious pint of Beech Mountain Brewing Co. beer!
Registration: 9 – 11a.m. day-of OR you can pre-register at Recess in Boone one week prior!
