A highlight of the summer coming around is starting to see the content coming out of Fonna Glacier, prodominently orchestrated by the Mushroom Crew. You may know if their weekly park videos 'Fridays At Fonna'. Well, they also put on some really cool events up on the glacier, one being their very own rendition of a classic banked slalom. Theirs is of course the Banked Shalom and offers a little more abnormality than just banks of snow back and forth. The opportunities to win a coveted prize is also far broader.
Check out the full recap video here followed by a sellection of photos from the event shot by Even Brekke & Chris Baldry.
