The Easy Rider Snowboard Cup is turning the big three-zero!

30th Annual Easy Rider Snowboard Cup

Famed as the longest running snowboard contest in Canada and the third longest in North America (only behind the Burton US Open and the Legendary Banked Slalom at Mt. Baker), this is an event iconic to spring riding at Panorama and a huge weekend of fun, snow and snowboard culture. 

This fun event is designed so that snowboarders of all ages and abilities can participate and have a great time.

The events are a Banked Slalom (one run through the course each day), a fun “Style Contest” on a jump at the base on Saturday afternoon and a Snowskate event on Friday evening.
