 got snow ?              News from The Steep, Deep & Extreme International Big Mountain Slopes


Snow Alert, -Beaver Creek

BARDONECCHIA, Italy (Feb. 2) - Olympian Tyler Jewell (Sudbury, MA) earned a career best World Cup result Friday, finishing sixth in the first parallel giant slalom since the World Championships. Chris Klug (Aspen, CO) also made the 16-man final, finishing 15th on the 2006 Olympic hill. U.S. Snowboarding's Michelle Gorgone (also Sudbury) was eighth.

Jewell, who was 11th in his Olympic debut last February, has been riding very strong in PGS lately finishing sixth at the World Championships last month and also owns victories both U.S. Snowboarding Race to the Cup events this season.

"It was a great hill, things didn't really go that well in training, but I put it together and it won't be long before I crack the podium," said Jewell. "My confidence was pretty low in qualifying because I was having a tough time with the snow, but once your in the final, it's anyone's game."

After qualifying 10th, Jewell moved past Austrian Andreas Prommegger in the first round before falling just short to Heinz Inniger of Switzerland in the quarterfinal, the eventual third place finisher. Swiss rider Roland Haldi won followed by Nicolas Huet of France.

"Prommegger had me by a little bit in the first run of finals, but I stuck to my guns and my wax tech Christian [Schmidl] nailed it. It came right down to the final gate with him and that's always exciting. I think I could have had Innigger, but it's only a matter of time. It's cool that this team is getting the support it needs to be successful and I fell like we're all on track for Vancouver."

For Gorgone, who has had a rough early season, today's final is a boost of confidence as she made short work of German Amelie Kober in the first round. She then beat Fraenzi Kohli of Switzerland in the first run of quarterfinals by .08 seconds, but a few slips in the second run bumped her from the ladder. Kohli would move on to win the race ahead of Austrians Heidi Neururer and Doresia Krings.
"It was a cool day, very sunny, with the entire team cheering at the bottom of the hill and that always helps. Steve [Persons, head coach] was up top and I've been working with him a lot lately so it's good to have him to calm you down in the start and give you an ego boost before each run," said Gorgone, a 2006 Olympian.

The Team now moves into a busy month with events scheduled for Russia, Japan and Korea over the next three weeks.

– The TELUS Terrain Park at Lake Louise Mountain Resort has undertaken a facelift for the 2007 season. With a new staff of motivated riders dedicated to building a solid park program, the TELUS Terrain Park is starting to create a buzz in the Bow Valley and beyond.
For 2007, the Resort has allocated more terrain to the park to allow for more features and variety, and enabling skiers and snowboarders of all levels to use the features. Three major park sections have been created in the park, each specifically catering to beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.
Says Matt Mosteller, Senior Director of Business Development for the Resort, “The TELUS Terrain Park at Lake Louise Mountain Resort has a long-standing reputation for being a great place to learn for beginners while providing a challenge for more experienced riders. We’re thrilled with the development of this year’s park for all to enjoy.”
