A Wild RIDE to the Baker Banked

A WILD RIDE to Baker Banked

The RIDE team left cell service and headed into the North Cascades to participate in the oldest running snowboard event in America: the Legendary Banked Slalom.

It Really Is Legendary

Also known as the greatest one-and-a-half-minute leg work out in the world, LBS takes place in Mt. Baker’s historic natural halfpipe and is arguably the most prestigious snowboard race in the world. The weekend-long event attracts snowboardings top dogs–which is the reason we threw Jake Blauvelt, Hana Beaman and Jake Welch into the mix to see just how fast they could go.

Mt. Baker is Unforgiving

The Cascades are unpredictable and weather was not on the sides of the racers as near whiteout conditions ripped through the course during both qualifying days. High winds toppled old-growth trees, blocking roads and knocking out power for much of the area. Basically, Mother Nature was not having it.

However, race times came in and the boys made Sunday finals. When the storm broke, blue skies descended on the course and it was fast as heck. Winning gold isn’t really our style, so no storybook ending here but as you can tell by the photos, Welch, Hana and Blauvelt looked damn good doing it.

The Legendary Banked Slalom

Held annually since 1985, LBS is regarded as the predecessor to the boardercross event and has been won by some of the biggest names in the history of snowboarding. The winner receives a Duct Tape trophy and an embroidered Carhartt jacket.

We’ll be partying out there again next year so sign up to receive event updates and we’ll see you there.
