Attention, Would-Be Olympians

On the weekend of February 25 and 26, the Banked Slalom ski and snowboard race returns for its 22nd year. Even if you aren’t up for competing—in this race, kids and amateurs get to compete on the same course as the pros, with assistance of banked turns carved out of the snow—watching it’s a blast. (Head to Snowsnake Gully, the twisty little black run below the double-black Wall.) Want to see more? Check out this highlights clip from 2013.
