Faye Gulini checks in
So I spent what appears to be my last day on snow at Squaw on Saturday. It was the perfect way to end an outstanding season. I was trying front 7’s all day and came very close to landing a front 9. It was so sunny and warm. I’m bummed to be off snow, I miss it already!
Kelly Marren: The Closure of a Memorable 2010 Season
The Olympic Spirit swept the snowboarding community this season, making me and so many others deeply proud to be citizens of the USA! I was delighted to be a part of the mayhem -- qualifying to compete in all five Grand Prix Olympic Qualifier Stops. After the team was selected in Park City, I had the opportunity to head to to Vancouver to cheer on my teammates who made the final Olympic cut. In addition to attending the men and women's Halfpipe Comps, I got see Apolo Ono won his first Speed Skating medal of the games and cheer Seth Wescott and Nate Holland on in the BoarderCross finals.
USASA Nationals Update from Mike and Mimi
Hey everyone! We just finished our two days of racing here at Copper on Tuesday, and we both had an awesome time despite dealing with some nasty weather. On Monday we raced Slalom and each finished with a silver medal and $1000 in prize money! Not too shabby!! Tuesday’s GS was a bit more rough though unfortunately. Mimi wasn’t able to race do to a concussion, and Mike had to deal with a nasty cold on top of some crazy cold, snowy and ridiculously windy weather and ended up finishing 7th respectively.
