Big Banks, Deep Roots

Why the name and spot? Summit East, formerly called PacWest Ski Area, was selected as the location because of its deep history in snowboarding. PacWest Ski Area hosted many classic competitions from the early days of the snowboarding including the Good ‘N’ Fruity Jam, and the Urban Circus Jumpfest among others. Many legendary snowboarders grew up riding here or made turns at this special little mountain, including Craig Kelly, Peter Line, and Jamie Lynn to name a few.

The PacWest Banked Slalom will be hosted by Marcel Dolak, a longtime Summit at Snoqualmie local who first took his turns under Julie’s Chair approximately 32 years ago. He has been a strong competitor in Banked Slalom’s, and he is excited to keep this new event going with The Summit. Marcel’s co-host is Olivia Cayley, who also lives in Hyak. Olivia has a passion for snowboarding and events, and looks forward to the PacWest Banked Slalom being an amazing event for years to come.

We thank all of our sponsors as we couldn’t do this event without their support.
