The Silver Belt Bonzai will return again this season to Sugar Bowl Resort.  The Bonzai is half ski cross, half downhill.  The course is about natural features, winding and flying down the famed Silver Belt gully.  Your 2009 winner was Daron Rahlves, a 12-time World Cup winner (including a win at the legendary Hahnenkamm Downhill in 2003) and SkierX silver medalist.  “It’s such a fun event” said Rahlves, “and with the growing popularity and inclusion of ski-cross in the 2010 Olympics, mixed with the downhill speed and excitement of the Silver Belt gully itself, the Banzai should only grow bigger and better in the years to come.”

10k in prizes will be up for grabs at the Silver Belt Bonzai at Sugar Bowl, March 13 & 14.  Spectator happiness is guaranteed, so make plans now!
