The 3rd Annual Dick’s Ditch Classic is the wildest ride in the West since the mechanical bull, combining a banked terrain slalom on March 11, 2000 with a halfpipe competition on March 12, 2000. The banked slalom course is laid out in “Dick’s Ditch,” a steep and deep naturally gully that cuts through the mountain. Add some strategically placed gates and a few terrain enhancements and you’ve got one of the most exciting, technical snowboarding events you’ve ever seen. Dick’s Ditch is nearly a mile long, so prepare yourself for a crazy ride!
