Banked Bakony 2023

When?
10-11th February, 2023

Where?
Ski Arena Vibe Park, Eplény, Hungary

Hey 'Banker', Welcome to BB23!

Following the great success of last year's event, now just a few weeks apart us to come together again and battle for the legendary trophy of Banked Bakony.

Banked Bakony is an annual snowboard gathering for all the passionate riders, film makers, family and friends globally to carve in the deep banks and cruise in the crazy lines of the trough.

It is a classic "non-competitive" competition, where legends are not only born on the mountain, but also grab the shovel, raise the glass in the bar or play some music for the fans! We believe in the power of our beloved snowboard community and invite all guests and riders to stay for the whole weekend and experience some real "Eastern vibes" in the heart of Bakony, Hungary.

Regardless of gender and ages we were welcoming over 200 participants last year, where the youngest competitor was only 6 but the wisest one was 52 years old. It is a great feeling to see generations merge together and celebrate the pure beauty of snowboarding during this event.

We can provide nothing but the followings:

  • deeper banks, radical turns and longer lines;
  • more diverse racing categories, in order to make sure everyone fits in the club he/she would love to;
  • night practice runs on Friday;
  • free beer and BBQ on Saturday;
  • live music and good vibes!

Save the date in your calendar and reserve your spot in advance!

Stay tuned and follow us on Instagram!
