Darren Rahlves Downhill Banzai

This last weekend was the 2nd stop on the Rahlves Banzai tour at Kirkwood. If you have not heard about it, the Banzai is your old school down hill race; from the top of the mountain to the bottom, off piste, four at a time, first person down wins. I was not at Kirkwood this last weekend but did whiteness the January race Alpine Meadows. The terrain was harsh, and the competition was steep. The top purse of $10,000 is drawing top skiers from the area out of the wood works to compete. For those of you who are planning on competing in the finial March 12-13 Sugar Bowl Banzai, you better get those legs strong and your wits stronger. Here are some takes from the Alpine Meadows comp. Ski hard, go fast, and take risk!
