The first ever banked slalom to Crystal Mountain is finally here! Introducing, The Last Ditch Effort Banked Slalom presented by Smartwool! Inspired and directed by Crystal Mountain Ambassador Blair Habenicht, this banked slalom is a salute to the 2016-17 winter season and the last banked slalom before the Rat Race Banked Slalom at Mt.
