Real Snow Angels

I don’t know if there is a harder city to leave than Aspen. But today, I have to buck up and Just Do It (prelude to my next destination).

Yesterday, the Snow Angels Invitational halfpipe contest was held, and it was no surprise that event organizer Gretchen Bleiler won. Kelly Clark took second and Elena Hight took third. The format, a jam, resulted in about six runs per athlete and some decent progression. Unfortunately, it also resulted in a serious concussion (Clark), a less-serious concussion (Soko Yamaoka), a dislocated shoulder (Hannah Teter), a bruised hip and back (Claire Bidez) and a broken rib (Kaitlyn Farrington).

Check out the blog I wrote for on the event. I dropped in on an environmental workshop where the women discussed how to help raise awareness on a little topic called global warming …

The angels. A bright bunch …
