The Summit at Snoqualmie today announced it will host the first ever U.S. edition of the Ride Shakedown snowboarding competition. The event will be March 12-13 at Summit West.

In what has grown to be Canada’s largest and arguably most popular snowboarding event, the Ride Shakedown attracts international snowboarding talent hoping to showcase their abilities in the event’s signature thrill-a-minute format, the press release said.

With $35,000 in prize money for the top performers, the U.S. stop looks to continue the trend while putting a unique Northwest spin to it. Among the competitors will be Seattle-based Ride Snowboard and Summit at Snoqualmie team rider Austin

“This is a great two days of music, entertainment and top level riding,” said Krush Kulesza, youth marketing manager for The Summit. “Whether you come as a competitor or a guest, you’re going to have a great experience.”
