We’ve all seen it. A beautifully laid out slope with perfect powder on it, and row after row of perfect turns side by side. As they overlap a series of figure 8s magically appears. Talk about conservation and making the most of this precious powder.
That technique is called powder 8s, and believe it or not, people train and compete in Powder 8 events. One of the biggest - the Bumble 8 Championships is coming up this weekend in Aspen, and two of Meadows Learning Center’s finest have been invited to compete.
The video tells the story of Jennifer Lockwood and Katie Feucht-Smith and their ambition to bring home gold while making perfect turns. As well as raising funds for Challenge Aspen to “create possibilities for people with disabilities.”
If you’d like to help Jenn and Katie along their journey, and raise some dollars for this very worthy cause, Jenn is offering a Powder 8 conditioning class through Peak Fitness. Sign up by February 7, get the class and help raise some money! Good luck Jenn and Katie!
