Saturday March 12, Snowsport Scotland is hosting Banked Slalom 2022, a new event on the Scottish snow calendar. Weather depending, the competition will be held at the Glenshee Ski Centre in the Cairngorms National Park.
Between the hours of 8:30AM and 16:30PM on March 12, the Glenshee Ski Centre will be alive with spectators gathering to watch snowboarders competing to put down the fastest time, either for glory or just to beat pals.
Anyone that wants to compete is invited to register before March 10 at 12PM (late entries will incur an additional £5 charge). Ticket prices are as followed:
