The Beech Mountain Banked Slalom has become a highly anticipated gathering for the ski and snowboard community in its ninth year.
Due to harsh weather conditions, the competition moved to Sunday, March 13, and thank goodness it was. The weather was fantastic, and the course conditions were excellent after six inches of natural snow.
At 77 entrants, the Banked Slalom became a reunion for multiple ski and snowboard community generations, and served as a charity fundraiser for the Colon Cancer Coalition, helping the resort’s annual event raise over $45,000.
