The world's best adaptive snowboarders gathered in Breckenridge on Thursday to strap in and start practicing for the inaugural Dew Tour Adaptive Snowboard Banked Slalom. By partnering up with Adaptive Action Sports and Toyota, Dew Tour has created their first-ever banked slalom course.

Complete with occasional takeoff sections that send athletes through the air from turn to turn, the walls on the banked slalom course are built for speed.

In addition to top adaptive athletes from around the world converging at the Dew Tour, banked slalom and all around snowboarding legend, Terje Haakonsen made a surprise visit to the course just in time to take the first test run. Absolutely stoking out the athletes with his unexpected appearance, Haakonsen did his best to break in the banks but after just a couple of quick runs he left the course to be torn up by the competitors.

Make sure to like the Dew Tour Facebook page, and watch the adaptive action live on Friday, December 9th at 11 a.m. Mountain Time only on Facebook Live.
