Competition is open to novice slalom skiers. Come join the event at the slalom course at Porter’s Branch as a competitor or spectator.
On Friday, June 17, all participants will meet at Kowaliga Marina at 7am. There will be a boat to transport all skiers, parents and gear to the slalom course at Porter’s Branch.

On Saturday, June 18, the fun tournament will run from 7am to noon. Skiers will compete based on age and performance from Friday’s clinic. Awards ceremony will be immediately after tournament scores are completed. We welcome all visitors to Porter’s Branch on Saturday morning to watch the tournament. There is plenty of room to raft up and enjoy the action!
