Big Bam Vertical Slam could be postponed until next Spring

TAYLOR, B.C. – The upcoming Big Bam Vertical Slam, which is planned for September 17th, could be postponed until next year due to a lack of registrants.

Event organizer Laurie Cardinal says that though many have shown interest in participating in the 2nd iteration of the Slam, which is set to feature both a 5km hike in addition to an obstacle course, the number of confirmed registrants is still below what organizers had hoped to see at this point in time. Event planners had aimed to see close to 400 participants come out for the event, however the number of current 130 registrations is closer to 130.

Cardinal acknowledged that though many hikers will be registering for the Vertical Slam at the last minute, she said that the equipment required to build the planned obstacle course requires advanced booking. Purchasing or renting the equipment and services in advance is more difficult due to the Ski Hill being a non-profit venture. Cardinal added that organizers will postpone the event and include it in the Big Bam Vertical Slam that is scheduled for June 10th, 2017. She says that current registrants will be able to get a full refund, or include their registration fees in next year’s event.
