Community Race Series


The Legendary Don Baker Banked Slalom is an amazing event in memory of an outstanding and influential individual in the local community. Every year, the community gathers to honor Don Baker, who dedicated much of his life to Bogus Basin as a ski patroller and lift operations director.

Come celebrate the sport of snowboarding and the life of a local legend, by strapping in and pointing it to the finish line. The course is hand dug by volunteers and terrain park staff. Featuring steep pitches, tight turns, and rollers.
