In order to get the inside scoop for all of you, I spent my weekend riding and watching the Winter X Games here at Sierra Resort! I know, it’s a tough job…but someone’s gotta do it!
There was a great vibe around the resort this past weekend while everyone was rooting for the Sierra Resort professional athletes as they competed in the 2012 Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado. The ladies definitely represented for their home mountain and all three scored a spot on the podium!
Jamie Anderson continued to push the limits of Women’s snowboarding this season, as she took home gold in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle, making her a three time X Games gold medalist! (2007,2008, 2012) Check out the link below for the flawless run that earned her a 95.33 - the highest score in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle history! Killing it!!!!
Maddie Bowman has also been killing it this season, already earning first place at Dew Tour and second at the North Face Park and Pipe in 2012. In only her second X Games appearance, Bowman took home silver in Women’s Ski Superpipe! This girl has tons to be smiling about as she continues her dominating 2012 competition campaign!
Finally, X Games veteran Hannah Teter stood on the podium with a bronze in Women’s Snowboard Superpipe. Teter adds to her already impressive list of snowboard accomplishments, including Olympic gold medal and bronze medals.
From all of us here at Sierra Resort, CONGRATS LADIES!!! Way to represent for your home mountain!!!
The memory of Sarah Burke will live on in the way you all continue to push the limits of women’s skiing and snowboarding!!
