Rahlves’ Banzai Tour Feb. 23-24 at Alpine Meadows

The Rahlves' Banzai Tour makes stop number 2 at Alpine Meadows this mid-week.  This is the tour billed as the event where big mountain freeskiing meets skier/boarder-cross.  4 skiers or boarders leave the gate at the same time with the goal to be the first one down. The Tour opened two weeks ago at Kirkwood Mountain Resort. 
The “Beaver Bowl Banzai” drops into the Beaver Bowl to the top of Kangaroo lift and finishes at the bottom of Kangaroo.  I spectated last year at the finish and found it really fun to watch.  Rahlves was there at the finish area, there was a finish line announcer, sponsor booths, beer vendors, and a bunch of fun positive vibes.
The after ski party will be held at The Last Chair Bar, hosted by High Fives.Org.  High Fives is a foundation that raises awareness and money for winter action sports athletes who have suffered a life-altering injury.
