Snowboarding News | Monday February 25, 2013 | Shared By: Volcom

February 23rd marks a sad day in snowboarding, it has been 10 years since the passing of Jeff Anderson. What a better way of
remembrance and bringing people together then to hold a slalom at his home mountain helped put on by his sponsors. The inaugural JLA Banked Slalom.
Gathering Jeffys friends, family, admirers and the youth of today. All for the memory of Jeff.





Billy running through the course. First to drop!

It is usually never a good thing to hear the first report of the day as 130 mph gusts, especially when the day before was the
ideal Mammoth spring day. But it didn’t matter, with the crowd that had gathered and the overwhelming energy that was in the air, there was no
chance the contest wasn’t running. No matter what Mother Nature was going to throw our way.


Alex Rodway AKA the sleeper

With the wind howling and a couple minor delays Billy Anderson was the first to drop,
literally breaking trail from the snow that had accumulated in the preceding 30 minutes.
It was a total luck of the draw on the weather, either dropping into a complete white out or clear and calm. As luck would have it, when Scott Blum
dropped the skies finally broke.


The fastest man of the day

Thank you to Billy, Mammoth Mountain and all of the sponsors for making this event a reality. Mark your calendars for next winter!
