The 24th annual Nate Chute Banked Slalom and Boardercross was held last weekend at Whitefish Mountain Resort.

It is the second-longest-running snowboard banked slalom in the country and third-longest in North America, according to WMR. The event raises money for the Nate Chute Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to suicide prevention in western Montana.

On Saturday competitors raced in the banked slalom, navigating hand-built turns and rollers through the trees into George’s Gorge. Best time wins and seeds racers for the Sunday boardercross.

On Sunday, two to five riders race through a course of jumps, banks, rollers and traffic off the Goat Haunt trail.
