Today was a great day on the mountain. Beautiful bluebird skies, mild winds and great visibility. Temperatures averaged around 30F for most of the day. No crowds at all lot’s of fun to be had. Middle Bowl Cirque was open today, we took a few adventurous lines into the bowl. Very firm at the top, various bomb holes to watch out for too. The bottom of the run had some firm crust, a bit easier for the boarders than skiers. The traverse across the back of Middle Bowl was a bit sketchy, not much definition there and hard for boarders to make the whole traverse without bootpacking.
Dew Tour construction is going full tilt and looking impressive. The half pipe on School Hill will be INSANE!!
Tomorrow should be a great day with races on city hill. Should be some fun spectating. Hope to see you up at Snowbasin!!
The Winter Dew Tour, the world’s premier season-long winter action sports tour, announced that Snowbasin, a Sun Valley Resort, in Huntsville Utah, near Ogden Utah, will host the second of three stops Jan. 15-17, 2010 for the Tour’s second season. The Winter Dew Tour showcases top winter athletes from around the world competing in freeskiing (slopestyle and superpipe) and snowboarding (slopestyle and superpipe) for both men and women. Snowbasin, which hosted the Men’s and Women’s Downhill and Super-G events for the 2002 Winter Olympics, is a new host resort for the Winter Dew Tour, which had its inaugural season in 2008-09. ”Utah hosting the Winter Dew tour along with the Summer Dew tour continues to illustrate the growth Utah is experiencing in the action and adventure sports industry”, said Jeff Robbins, president & CEO of the Utah Sports Commission, “Utah will receive significant benefit from this new event providing an anticipated $5 million in economic impact and $6 million in national and international media exposure.”
All three stops of the Winter Dew Tour will be televised Live on NBC and simulcast around the world on Eurosport 2, Extreme Channel and Fox Sports Australia, with additional coverage on USA Network and MTV2.
“Both the Summer and Winter Dew Tours have proven to be well regarded events by fans and athletes alike,” said Kent Lyons, General Manager of Snowbasin. “We are beyond excited to host the Winter Dew Tour, and we feel that Snowbasin will make a great fit.”
“The state of Utah has had a tremendous partnership with the Summer Dew Tour over the last three years which has exposed our beautiful state to millions of people around the world,” said Lieutenant Governor Gary R. Herbert. “Utah is the State of Sport, and we’re looking forward to hosting the world’s best freeski and snowboard athletes this winter at Snowbasin.”
“We are thrilled to be the host community for this event,” said Mayor Matthew R. Godfrey, Mayor of Ogden, Utah. “Ogden’s national reputation as being the Mecca of high adventure recreation is a perfect match for a premier extreme winter sporting event like the Winter Dew Tour.”
“We are extremely excited to have Snowbasin as our new host resort for the second stop of the 2009-10 season,” said Chris Prybylo, Vice President of Events for Alli, the Alliance of Action Sports. “Utah has proven to be a great fit for the Summer Dew Tour and we look forward to continuing that success for the winter competitions.”
