Extreme Games

If you are looking for the leading ladies from Sierra-at-Tahoe this weekend, make sure you check a place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. A little place called Aspen. 

Aspen will play host to the Winter X Games and Sierra Resort team riders Jamie Anderson, Maddie Bowman, and Hannah Teter will all try to land atop the podium. A place the ladies are all to familiar with. 

Jamie Anderson, women’s snowboard slopestyle, is currently crushing the competition, like a fat kid would with cake. Anderson is a bit of a household name in Aspen and has won Winter X Game gold 4 times, including last season, and was the youngest Winter X gold medalist ever in 2007. Anderson will compete on Saturday, January 25, 2014. 

Maddie Bowman, women’s ski superpipe, is also hot right now. Bowman has a leg up on the competition thanks to her technical skills, including both right and left 900s, making her more dangerous than a gun at a knife fight. Bowman has podiumed the past two seasons, including a win last year. She will get extreme in the stunt ditch this Friday, January 24, 2014. 

No stranger to Winter X Games and big events, former Olympic gold medalist Hannah Teter, women’s snowboard superpipe, has her sights set on another podium finish at Winter X Games. Teter is determined to land on the podium with big amplitude and a run smoother than a baby's bottom. Teter will drop-in on January 25. 

In addition to competing at X Games. All three athletes have been invited to the big dance in Russia in under a month. Get a sneak peak at their runs before they thrown them down at the winter games.

Congrats to Sierra Team Riders!

Break out the vodka and Borsch, Jamie Anderson, Maddie Bowman, and Hannah Teter are going to Russia. Congrats to our three team riders for earning a spot in the winter games to be held in Russia.

Jamie Anderson, women’s snowboard slopestyle, clinched her spot with a dominant qualifying campaign. Anderson won all five qualifiers and is considered a heavy medal favorite heading into games. 2014 marks the first year women’s snowboard slopestyle will be recognized as a medal sport. Women’s snowboard slopestyle will take place on February 9, 2014 at the Rosa Khutor Resort.  

Maddie Bowman, women’s ski halfpipe, clinched her spot on the first ever U.S. Freesking Team with four podiums, including three victories throughout qualifying. Similar to women’s slopestyle, women’s ski halfpipe will make its debut in Russia. Women’s ski halfpipe will take place on February 20, 2014 at the Rosa Khutor Resort.

Hannah Teter, women’s snowboard halfpipe, is competing in her third games and looks to come home with another medal. Teter won gold in 2006, and silver in 2010. Teter lives in South Lake Tahoe and will represent the USA in a stacked women’s halfpipe field. Women’s snowboard halfpipe will take place on February 12, 2014 at the Rosa Khutor Resort.

Before heading to Russia, the Sierra Resort athletes will make a stop in Aspen, Colorado, to compete at the Winter X Games. All three ladies have previously stood on the top of the podium at X Games and will look to do so again and carry that momentum into the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Well-known for its commitment to both freestyle terrain parks and maintaining one of Lake Tahoe’s best halfpipes, Sierra Resort is proud to be home to some of the best athletes in the world.  Good luck or as the Russians say, удача (that's good luck for you non-Russian speakers).

The Goggles Don't Lie

If you haven't been up to the mountain in a while, you're probably wondering what conditions are like this weekend. Well you're in luck because as your trust snow reporter,I have been taking the incredible Zeal HD Goggles out to film conditions every Friday. Not only do these bad boys have top-of-the-line lenses, they also capture every moment in brilliant 1080p HD quality video.

As I went along on my weekly corduroy hunt, I was amazed at the great conditions I discovered. Thanks to our north facing slopes, conditions are holding up nicely despite the lack of stormy weather. Our groomers have been working their magic every night to keep the mountain looking fresh and it shows! Check out the smooth cords for yourself in my latest edition of The Goggles Don't Lie.
