The Ditch is back! Who’s ready for some giant banked slalom? In this 50th anniversary year, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has been bringing back some older, traditional events and historic competitions but the latest upcoming comp needs no reinvigorating. Instead, it is has and shall remain an ever-current classic – that is The Dicks Ditch Classic- giant banked slalom of the 2016 vintage. Registration is up-and-running, so let the good times roll!
For a taste of the Ditch, cue 50th throwback video circa 2010. Six years ago – featuring self described ‘ski dork’ and JHMR Athlete Andrew Whiteford along with local speed fiend- and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Athlete Max Hammer as they both…yes…drop the hammer in just seconds.
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.
