Not Another Banked Slalom - Ragged Mountain

3-14-20

https://raggedmountainresort.com/Events/

Same weekend as Vermont Open, perhaps good for those who can't make time for a two day event.  This one is one on one boarder cross, two run elimination.

Personal bitching:. Why the move towards two day events here?  I understand the work required to create the courses but it's not like these mountains are near much, so it becomes a possible day off work plus hotel costs kinda weekend vs. a suck it up and get up early day trip.  I get it's more fun for some, but it pushes out others (like those of us with very young children).  (World's smallest violen plays...).

@powdahbonz That’s the moonlight challenge team GS thing, right? Gotta skip that one this year. I don’t see anything on Shawnee site about a banked event. That night is a fun one regardless. Timing just not working out for me this year.
