5 rad banked slalom events

The Neil Edgeworth Memorial has been the banked slalom event of choice for those North Americans living north of the border (read: Canadians). First started as the ‘Inland Banked Slalom’ in 1987, only two years after the Mt. Baker equivalent, the event was resurrected in 1997 as a memorial event, after influential Canadian snowboarder Neil Edgeworth lost his life in an avalanche.

Although the Big White event doesn’t really attract the same pedigree of rider as its Mt. Baker sibling, it does share many of the same principles, being more about remembering friends old and new rather than getting all serious about winning.

(Might be best not to invite Shaun White then…)
