Pinecrest, CA - March 22, 2024


The $30,000 Cali Pass Banked Slalom Tour culminated in an epic finale March 16th crowning Nate Holland and Melissa Shulz as Open Champions. After a thrilling series at Mountain High, China Peak, and Dodge Ridge, these riders solidified their place in snowboarding history.


More than 275 competitors battled for glory during the three-stop tour, showcasing the depth of talent and passion within the banked slalom community.  Olympian, Nate Holland, swept the Men's Open division at every stop, his powerful riding a testament to his enduring legacy. Meanwhile, Melissa Shulz secured wins at both Mountain High and Dodge Ridge, her consistency and speed earning her the Women's Open championship.


"This tour was absolutely epic!" exclaimed Holland. "The courses, the community, the whole energy – this is what snowboarding's about. Even better, my daughter got to race alongside me! I can't wait to come back and defend my title next year."


“I would sum up The Cali Pass Tour with two words: Pure Stoke!" said Todd Proffit, the tour's Technical Director and Founder. "That was the feeling at each location. To have the snowboarding community come together as a whole from the resorts, sponsors, competitors, and entertainers, it was awesome to see it blossom and realize how truly special the Cali Pass Tour is.”


The competition was intense across every division, fueled by generous support from more than 20 major sponsors. The energy was palpable as riders, friends, and families cheered from the sidelines, creating an unforgettable atmosphere.


"The vibe around the Cali Pass Tour is infectious," said John McColly, Cali Pass VP of Sales & Marketing. "If you thought this year was big, just wait. Next season promises to be a true spectacle, with the addition of Bear Valley as a fourth stop and plans for live music, a vendor village, and even more activities at each location.”
