Smash Life! Banked Slalom

Jan 31
7:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The fourth annual banked slalom event at Alpental. Thanks for Smashing Life with us for the last three years!

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

This event has been postponed to January 31-Feb 1, 2015

The course, built on one of A-Robs favorite runs, will melt your brain!  Its a little rowdiers than your standard ditch run, with huge hand sculpted turns, and last year even had a capsule.  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 2015. Known for it's positive vibe, rooted charm, and rowdy ride... the 2015 Smash Life! Banked Slalom is a must-hit on any boarder's list.

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.
