The Dick's Ditch Classic, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort's premier ski and snowboard freeride/race event, winds over manmade and natural terrain in Amphitheater Bowl. It’s a banked slalom, with a thigh-burning course like no other, big prize money for pros, bragging rights and belt buckles for amateur classes.

This year, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort's premier ski and snowboard banked slalom event, the Dick's Ditch Classic, will take place on two separate weekends for ski and snowboard disciplines. The Snowboard Competition will be March 14th-16th, and Ski Comp will be March 7th-9th.

Dick’s Ditch is a two-day banked slalom competition that runs on the man-made and natural terrain in Dick's Ditch, from Lupine Way down to South Pass Traverse.

Each division winner will receive a Dick’s Ditch belt buckle.
