Snowboarders shredded down a mountain for the first time at the 2001 World Winter Games in Anchorage, Alaska. At its debut in international competition, 23 athletes competed in three Snowboarding events similar to Alpine Skiing-slalom, giant slalom and super giant slalom.
There are two ability levels offered: novice and intermediate/advanced. Athletes are placed in divisions according to ability.
Granite Peak requires both a lift ticket waiver and a competition waiver in order to participate in our State Winter Games. These waivers are for athletes AND coaches that will be on the hill. Please fill out the waivers at the links below. Reminders will be sent after the registration deadline.
New regulations regarding ski helmets for Giant Slalom, Super-G and Downhill to meet the new FIS standards will be in affect for the 2021 State Winter Games. There will be an equipment check before lift tickets are distributed. Athletes with helmets that don’t meet these standards will not be eligible to compete.
Under the new regulations, helmets must bear a CE mark and conform to recognized and appropriate standards such as CEH.Din 1077, ASTM F2040, SNELL S98 or RS 98. In addition, in order to attest that a helmet fulfills all FIS requirements, it must have a conformity label affixed by the manufacturer in a non-removable way, at the back of the helmet, in a position where it is not covered by the goggle strap. The conformity label must contain the text “Conform to FIS Specifications RH 2013”.
