The inaugural Ditchslap Banked Slalom at Eldora Mountain Resort went off this past weekend! Over 130 riders took to a fresh course, designed by Kyle Markman, to battle it out for the fastest run in each division. Many competitors described it as a challenge but said it was insanely fun to ride and was even compared to the Legendary Banked Slalom! The course featured a large “wave” at the end which was a crowd favorite as some competitors got technical on it. It was a great first year event, and we all can't wait for next year.
