Furberg Banked Slalom - Sogndal
April 21. 2018
Welcome to the 3rd edition of the "Furberg Banked Slalom". It will take place at Sogndal Skisenter April 21st, 2018.
We believe that the Norwegian snowboard community needs a happening for everyone. An event for riders with different style, background and age. The two previous events had the full range of participants, from former snowboardcross world champion Helene Olafsen to skiers who wiped the dust from their 15 year old snowboards.
Friday April 20th - Course inspection and practice at Sogndal Skisenter 10:00-16:00.
Saturday April 21st - Competition day. The Rindabotn lift at Sogndal Skisenter opens at 10:00. You can sign up and get your bib at the bottom of the lift. Competition starts at 12:00. Course inspection before 12:00. 2 runs and best result counts. There will be a kicker right after the finish line, if you want to please the crowd. Best lady, best gentleman and most stylish air will be awarded with trophies and Furberg sticks.
Prize ceremony and party at Dampskipskaien 21:00.
