The Mt. Baker Legendary Banked Slalom began as a simple gate race to beat the late snowboard icon Tom Sims in 1985. The event quickly turned into proving grounds for snowboarding’s most elite riders, but through the inception of The Lottery the race has stayed relevant to competitors of every ability level. The added bonus of Mt. Baker Ski Area’s incredible in-bounds terrain and accessible backcountry make the location of the event an unrivaled destination for the entire snow community.
For these reasons, a trip to Mt. Baker and the Legendary Banked Slalom has become a pilgrimage for the snowboard industry and continues to be at the top of every snowboarders’ bucket list. Over the years, the Legendary Banked Slalom has inspired countless other snowboard races across the globe and continues to lead the field as the longest running and most prestigious snowboard race in the world.
What makes the Legendary Banked Slalom the best race in snowboarding is the continued support of core snowboard brands and affiliated companies that identify with the lifestyle of outdoor adventure in the mountains and beyond. For the 35th running of the event, rescheduled for 2022, we are offering 4 levels of involvement scaled to meet various sized budgets. As a bonus for those who are willing to commit to the event now we are adding additional benefits for the Mt. Baker Legends & Locals Banked Slalom slated for February 5th-6th-7th, 2021.
