About the competition

Riksgränsen Banked Slalom became an instant classic already after the first year. In 2013 we had 60 dedicated snowboarders competing in what some would define as “the art of swinging”. No jumps, no spins, no rails, just you, your board and your ability to carve and maintain speed through a course with 22 banks of curves. Year two, 2014, we had 151 people competing from 7 different nations in a mixed age range of 9-57 years. In year three we had over 250 participants and since then we have had around 300 riders competing on the course and many more watching the competition from the sidelines. In 2018, 120 of them were women and we are very proud to have taken our event in that direction. Our biggest growth is juniors/children and ladies and in 2019 we had even more women and juniors competing. In recent years we have seen the development of new boards dedicated to turning and more clips of “carving tricks” appearing on social media. Snowboarding is recapturing the carve and taking all snowboarders with it. Riksgränsen Banked Slalom is part of that movement and every year we try to embrace the spirit of snowboarding and connect the past with the future.
