Snow Alert -Whistler Blackcomb *** *** FIS News U.S. Skiers 1-2-3-4 in Super Series GS Brandenburg leads American Sweep BETHEL, Maine (Jan. 2) - Will Brandenburg (Spokane, WA) led a U.S. sweep of the top four places Tuesday in a Chevrolet Super Series giant slalom as NorAm Cup racing resumed at Sunday River. He edged Tim Jitloff (Reno, NV) by three-hundredths of a second for the victory. In blowy weather, with temperatures in the low 20s, Brandenburg was second on the first run and took the victory when Canadian Jean-Philippe Roy skied off course early in his second run. The time for Brandenburg's first Super Series triumph was 2:35.36.; the Super Series represents U.S. races in the NorAm Cup series. Ji tloff, the 2005 Junior World Championships combined gold medalist who is returning after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament a year ago, was second in 2:35.39. Warner Nickerson (Gilford, NH) - who skied plenty at Sunday River before he graduated from Colby College in Maine - completed the podium in 2:35.75.

Instead of firming things up, the sleet we got this morning actually piled up niceley, a few inches deep, giving us some great surface conditions on lots of terrain, including Scoot, Tote Road, Whiffletree, Sluice, and King's Landing. Look for the majority of our terrain to be tilled out by tomorrow morning, including Haulback for the first time this season. Snowmakers will be back at it again tomorrow as soon as temps and humidity drop back down, and the plan is to hit Widowmaker, Tohaul, Whiffletree, Narrow Gauge, and Competition Hill with a dose of the fresh stuff. A new year and a new month naturally mean new events, and we've got lots of em coming right up, starting with College Snowfest tomorrow through Jan 5. Come on up for a week long party including nightly entertainment, food and drink specials, and $35 lift tickets with a valid college ID. Jan. 8-12 is Children's Festival here at Sugarloaf, and kids age 4-12 ski for free when you stay for three or more midweek nights from Jan. 7-11. Then it's the Charity Summit, White White World Week, the Bud Light Concert Series (Strangefolk and The Samples), and more.
