The Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom takes place at Big White Ski Resort in March each year, with competitors of all ages & levels heading up to the resort for a whole weekend dedicated to snowboarding.
A real community and family event, the Neil Edgeworh is a highlight of the season at Big White and I joined them last year to make a mini documentary on how the competition came about, and the people who come back every year to take part.
I was a member of the Big White TELUS Park & Outdoor Events team in 2013 when I first entered the banked slalom competition. I was so nervous as I took off from the start gate, that I immediately missed the first post and was instantly disqualified. This incident formed the basis for my film, as I returned to Big White in March 2015 to claim retribution for my failure and to tell the story of how the Annual Neil Edgeworth Memorial Banked Slalom came about. It really is such a brilliant event, unique to the resort, and a perfect example of Big White's family and community focused hospitality.
