Aspen/Snowmass, Colo., March 21, 2014 – Weekend two of Spring Jam entertainment kicked off with the inaugural Banked Slalom event today. This snowboard-only event charged down the natural terrain of Sandy Park at Snowmass. The event drew 100 riders of all ages to challenge each other on banked turns.

"Sandy Park has always been one of the most fun runs on Snowmass, and adding a bunch of perfectly shaped berm turns only makes it better," says Tyler Lindsay, AVSC Snowboard Program Director. "The park staff here in Aspen/Snowmass do incredible work, whether for the X Games, Red Bull Double Pipe or here at a more grassroots participatory level."

Results for the event were as follows:

Men Ages 16 and Over1.) Cleve Johnson - 57.25 seconds
2.) Matt Boughton - 57.63 seconds
3.) Lucas Dehmlow - 57.80 seconds

Women Ages 16 and Over1.) Kelly Baker - 70.39 seconds
2.) Ashley Conner - 73.39 seconds
3.) Corianne Lambert - 80.47 seconds

Men Ages 10 to 151.) MJ Mirano - 68.54 seconds
2.) Logan Lautter - 69.00 seconds
3.) Johnny Weiss - 71.08 seconds

The final weekend of Spring Jam continues with the Core Party concert tonight in downtown Aspen featuring Beats Antique, a trio of live electronic and experimental world fusion musicians. This Sunday, March 23 the legendary Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls takes place. New this year, the Battle in the Bowls will offer the adventure category, a great option for families in which they will complete a course of runs with Highlands secrets and a number of special experiences. Participants will find some new spots and get to take home souvenirs.
