PHOTOS AND RESULTS: Second annual banked slalom at RMR

Over the weekend Trapper Snowboards held its second annual banked slalom event at RMR

Riders were blowing through the gates this weekend at the second annual banked slalom, which took place at Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

Despite the ever present pow and low visibility, volunteers worked diligently throughout the week to get the course up and running so that local snowboarders could compete.

The course weaved its way through Tasty Glades.

Felix Dallaire took home first place in the men’s category, Carl Cowtan finished first in the men’s masters category, and Ciara Michaluk won gold in the women’s category.

Nicolas Houle and Lucas A. Everett finished second and third respectively in the men’s category, and Oshi Hampson and Kiana Putman graced the podium in second and third in the women’s category.
