Fantasy February continues at the mountain. Six silent inches have fallen overnight, and nobody knows except you! (Well, and a few others that read this.) Powder turns from top to bottom. Yesterday was so much fun to see all the Jackson kids rip around, no school and powder conditions. Packs of them roamed through the trees laughing and yelling at each other, today we will miss you! Study hard, there will be plenty of powder for the weekend. Meanwhile, today could be "the one you remember" for the season - don't miss it.

Spirit Revolution Tour Closes with Slopestyle
Robin, Feldman top the podium
DULUTH, Minn (Feb. 18) - The lone Midwest stop of the Chevrolet Revolution Tour wrapped up Sunday with local rider Brian Robin (Prior Lake, MN) and Ellen Feldman (Avon, CO) taking slopestyle victories at Spirit Mountain.
"It was a great day at Spirit," said U.S. Snowboarding Program Manager Abbi Nyberg. "Not too cold after several very cold days and we saw some great riding, including a double back flip and lots of back 900's. Spirit did a great job hosting the event; it's always great to be in the Midwest."
It was the second Revolution Tour podium for Feldman, who was third in halfpipe at the opening event in Copper Mountain, CO. Rounding out the women's podium was Mikaela Casey (Mound, MN) and Kaitlyn Farrington (Bellevue, ID), who was second in halfpipe at Spirit. Brennen Swanson (Stillwater, MN) and Brett Esser (Dubuque, IA) filled out the men's podium with second and third behind Robin.
As a two-star event on the Ticket to Ride World Snowboard Tour (TTR), the largest culmination of independent freestyle events across the globe, top finishers will receive points toward the overall TTR world title.
Based on the current tour standings, the 2007 Snowboard World Junior Championships Team will be named later this week with competition slated for April 12-14 in Bad Gastein, Austria. The Revolution Tour now moves east as Vermont's Okemo Mountain hosts the fourth stop March 2-4 with halfpipe, snowboardcross and slopestyle all on the menu.
