Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom

Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom

It’s once again time to make the pilgrimage to one of the greatest mountains in the Northwest and ascend the windy snow covered road that leads to Mt. Baker. Last year was pretty damn epic, with untracked powder turns waiting for me everywhere I turned. It was actually hard to pay attention to the event. This year may be a little more event focused as the forecast isn’t calling for the same epic free-riding conditions we had last year. But the conditions may just be perfect for the actual reason were going, which some may consider more appropriate.

Last years overall winner was Harry Kearney, who had the fastest time of 1:28.07. Something tells me this year people are going to be smoking that time, as conditions are looking to be fast and rippable. So wax your board with $100 graphite, put on your flashy outfits and let’s have ourselves some fun! Hope to see you all there…
