Berming Man Banked Slalom
Snowshoe Mountain's first ever "Berming Man Banked Slalom," brought to you by Oakley, is a snowboard derby by design, but a gathering of the snowboard community by default. The two section course will test both speed and grit. Upon leaving the starting gate, riders will drop into a banked slalom section with multiple turns to test the riders' waxing choice and technique. After speeding through the turns, the course will open up into a mogul field we have crowned, the "Boneyard." The top portion of the course will be gated, but the "Boneyard" section will be open to rider creativity and bravery.

The contest will consist of the best of two runs. Categories are Men’s, Women’s, Collegiateand Youth (16 and under ). The fastest times of the day take home prizes from event sponsors, along with the inaugural “Berming Man” trophy and the honor of having their photo on display in Old Spruce Tavern for a full year of bragging rights as the fastest snowboarder in West Virginia.

Discounted lift tickets will be made available to competitors and we've got a slew of other activities happening that weekend. Check it all out on our main Events Page.

Here's what the schedule looks like on the day the man (and woman) berms:

9am-11am | Registration at the 20 Below Teen Center in the Shaver's Centre. Sorry skiers, this is a snowboard only event.There is no cost to register, but all riders must have a bib number. Helmets are also required to participate.
