Banked & Janked Slalom Tour January 21, 2019 – Posted in: News, Video
This past winter, we embarked on a Canada-wide banked slalom tour – with stops at Baldy Mountain, BC; Falcon Ridge, MB; and Smokey Mountain, NL.
This was a fun-focused, race-styled event which was open to both snowboarders and skiers, of all ages. There was minimal technical ability required to participate, which meant everyone could get involved and set their best time.
For the most part, this was a pretty standard banked-slalom event, except… we haphazardly scattered features, obstacles, and random props within, throughout, and around the course — just for the hell of it.
You might be asking, why? Well, everyone’s heard of a “janky-looking setup,” or a “janky rail,” right? Well… whether this was asked for or not, we introduced the world’s first jank-oriented banked-slalom event. We’ll leave it up to you to figure out the rest.
Berms, banks, booters, and who knows what else – you won’t want to miss the next one.
