Smash Life! Banked Slalom

Jan 16
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

The fourth annual banked slalom event at Alpental. Known for it's positive vibe, rooted charm, and rowdy ride...A-Rob's Smash Life! Banked Slalom is a must-hit on any boarder's list.

Riders from all across North America get together to celebrate a fellow shredder, and dear friend, whose life was taken too soon, Aaron Robinson.

The course this year will likely be on upper mountain, just into the Back Bowls of Alpental. We're really pumped about this new location idea!  Its a little rowdier than your standard ditch run, with huge hand sculpted turns. Mother nature ultimately dicatates the route, but no matter what you can expect a truly unique course with plenty of banked turns. The Alpental event is the second stop in the Smash Life series and due to huge support and popularity has grown to a two day event in 2016.

The proceeds of Smash Life! go to the Aaron Robinson Plant a Seed Foundation, and although it is a competition, the soul of the event is routed in having fun and celebrating an inspiration to the community while raising funds for A-Rob's Plant a Seed Fund.
