Sierra’s Spring Fiesta is in full effect, with every weekend jam-packed full of sweet activities and events! With so much going on all over the mountain this past weekend, I’m gonna break it all down to give you every juicy detail!
The weekend started off with a completely fresh terrain park on Bashful! Park crew worked their magic all week long to premier 12 brand new features including a couple LARGE jumps, just in time to practice your skills for the upcoming competitions!
Vans and Pro Tec Present Hi-Standard
A bunch of talented riders took part in the Vans and Pro Tec Hi-standard this Saturday, and I was stoked to spend part of my work day watching it all go down. This Double Big Air comp took place in our freshly rebuilt, signature terrain park on Broadway!
Each rider got 2 jumps and couldn't spin more than 540 on each jump. In a world chocked full of double and triple corks, it was refreshing to see a comp that truly focused on style and creativity!
Live Music from California Repercussions
At the base lodge this Saturday, everyone was enjoying the live music from California Repercussions AKA The Reapers! This 45-70 piece marching band is a melting pot of alumni from Northern California collegiate marching bands (UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and Standford).
The band brought in some killer energy to the base and inspired many guests to join in on the fun as they rocked the mountain with tunes including “American Idiot,” “Love Shack,” and “Original Prankster.”
Women’s Camp Presented by GNU Snowboards
This season’s final round of Women’s Camp went down on Sunday, and overall, the camp was a big hit! 12 ladies spent a super fun day on the mountain improving their skills with our top female instructors! This really is such a fantastic program and we’re stoked to keep it going next season!
Alright boys, I know what you are thinking….what about us?! Where is our Men’s camp? Well, instead of getting jealous, think of it this way – the more women we can help to improve their skiing/riding skills, the more beautiful snow bunnies you will see on the slopes! The way I see it, it’s totally a win, win!
Sierra’s Spring Fiesta Keeps Rollin’
Get stoked for an unforgettable up-coming weekend, as Sierra hosts the Billabong Flaunt It Finals! This TTR 4-Star event will bring some of the most talented women in snowboarding to Sierra as they throw down their best tricks all day to "flaunt it!" Sierra’s own snowboarding superstar, Jamie Anderson will be in attendance as a guest MC as the ladies compete for a $10,000 cash purse and tons of other sweet prizes!
