We heard Banked Slaloms are really cool this year, so we we’re talking to Timberline about doing one, but then we realized how much work was required to actually put something like this together. Building a course, figuring out how to not fuck up timing, etc etc. Then, when watching the greatest movie in the world, Aspen Extreme, for the 100th time it hit us, POWDER 8! And it was settled.
The format is simple: teams of two will ride down, cross-crossing turns and creating an 8 pattern and then be judged on their style, technique, creativity and team work. We know what you’re thinking, what if there’s no powder!? We’ve thought of that too, and we’ll make our own East Coast powder in the form of corduroy. So stop making excuses.
If you can ride anything, anywhere, anytime, and also know one other person who you trust not to blow it, SIGN UP NOW. Our panel of judges including such legends as Tim Windell, Shane Flood and maybe even Dave Schiff are ready to reward the team that harnesses it’s inner TJ Burke and wows them with their snowboard routine. One team will be declared the best snowboarders on the mountain, and there may even be prizes and beer as well.
On April 13th, 2013 come to Timberline for what’s sure to be a sweet-ass time (then stay an extra day For Airblaster’s Board Games too!) The action starts at 11 am.
