Blauvelt’s Banks

The inaugural Blauvelt’s Banks was held on Saturday, Feb 1, 2020. Pro Snowboarder, Jake Blauvelt, brought his vision to life with all proceeds to benefit Protect Our Winters (P.O.W.): A Good Time for a Great Cause!

A message of gratitude from Jake to this year’s participants:

Greetings Racers,

The inaugural Blauvelt’s Banks at Bolton Valley went off with a bang and could not have been possible without all of you! After seeing everything come full circle from the days when I learned to ride on the very run the course was held on, to hosting an event with my heroes and friends, both old and new, was one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of. Seeing everyones’ genuine stoke on race day solidified the fact that our tight knit shred community is thriving and well. We managed to raise $6,000 which will go straight to Protect Our Winters so they can continue their fight against climate change and future generations can continue to play with gravity in snow capped mountains. Even if you didn’t walk away with a trophy or bragging rights, know you did a great thing this winter just by being a part of the event. We plan to make this an annual race, so tell all your friends far and near and hope to see you same place, same time next year!

Thank You!
Jake Blauvelt
