Sugar Bowl / Tour Final
Sugar Bowl Resort is where it all began and ends with the Silver Belt Banzai. The 53 second time was set by fastest 2011 qualifier Kyle Smaine. This venue was built for the RBT by mother nature. It’s stacked with roller coaster terrain. The start drops into a steep shot at the top with a nice flowing left turn. Little natural hits put competitors in the air and fun banks to rail off of. The terrain is very unique down the Silver Belt Gully. It’s open up top and then constricts down to a narrow high walled Snake Gully. It’s like a banked race track and then you boost out onto Steilhang for “Rahlves Redline”. From there it’s time to hold on and point it. Keep an eye on the close battles to the line. Spectators line up along the skier’s right side, get views from Lincoln Express Chair and welcoming the battle in the finish arena. After the Men’s Ski Final, all four winners from the tour and Daron Rahlves head to the top for one last throw down in the “Super Final” for $10,000 winner takes all. Rahlves’ Banzai Apres Party, hosted by High Fives Org will be at Sierra Vista Bar. http://rahlvesbanzai.com/
