This past weekend marked one of the first major stops in the run for the 2010 Olympics with the first stop of the Grand Prix at Copper Mountain. I followed it via the massive amounts of twittering that was happening throughout the event, sad that I was not down there to cheer on the K2 riders in person…and that I was missing all the fresh new CO snow.
After all the media hype, summer shred ramp up, and speculation of who is in the running for this year’s US Olympic Snowboard Team the time for answers is finally upon us. This weekend marks the beginning of rush to Gold as Olympic hopefuls compete against one another in the US Grand Prix in Copper and Gretchen Bleiler did not start off slow.
Opening weekend was a success for Whitefish Mountain Resort, with new snow and sunny skies (once the weekend warriors went back to work) the mountain opened up the entire backside and a couple runs down the front.
