Back for its third year, the Bluebird Banked Slalom presented by Okanagan Springs promises to be one of the most entertaining events of the year for racers and spectators alike! Thanks to a new location and a brand new course groomed meticulously over the summer months, this year's Banked Slalom has been moved to February and will utilize the naturally banked terrain of the 5 Mile's 'Hully Gully'. This year we hope to raise over $3000 for the Bluebird Day Fund, a big thank you to all the volunteers, sponsors and racers for participating in this event.
Open to both skiers and riders, participants will compete against the clock on a closed banked slalom course. Each rider will get one timed run.
