Errol Kerr wins day one in Beaver Bowl Banzai

1 Comment 22 January 2011

Skiers and snowboarders were flying down the mountain Saturday to qualify for the Beaver Bowl Banzai, part of the Rahlves Banzai Tour.

But Alpine Meadows’ own Jamaican Ski Team Olympian Errol Kerr flew the fastest, blazing down the mountain at 1 minute 9 seconds!

“The course was amazing, Beaver Bowl here at Alpine Meadows is one of my favorite runs,” Kerr said. “I won today and I want to do it again tomorrow when it matters. I’m going for gold.”

Rahlves, who didn’t compete but took a run or two anyway, was also excited about the course.

“Today was an awesome start, weeding out the competition a little bit,” Rahlves said. “Guys were really pushing it hard, but it came down to knowing the course; when to back off a little and were to push it. But it’s a whole different game tomorrow with three other guys along side you.”

The finals, pitting four skiers or snowboarders against each other on the no-holds-barred course, start at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, and winners will walk away with a $10,000 prize purse with access to win the overall ‘Rahlves’ Banzai Tour with a $50,000 prize purse on the line.
