Foam and Plastic are the New Powder

This year we thought we would take a different approach to preseason training by taking advantage of the aerial facility in Copper.

The crew getting an introduction to the facility.

Woodward combines trampolines, ramps, and foampits as a venue to learn the aerial aspects of skiing in a benign way.

Escaping the pits of dispair.

It was a skiers equivalent of Disnyland, and the excitement of the crew was tremendous as we made the transition from skiing Copper Mountain to Woodward.

Getting a feel for skiing on carpet.

Luke Falcone about to drop in on the big ramp.

Unfortunately the day would not finish with out tradgedy. It was heartbreaking to see one of the most enthusiastic members of the team, Evan Marcus, dislokate his knee, and in doing so tear almost every ligament, on a trampoline.
