    Ms Sunshine .... (hmmmm, who is this?)

Hello, I have taken the position of "Sunshine Person" (lady) if you chose. My job will be to let you know that our Ski and Rec club is here to acknowledged events that happen in our personal life. These events aren't meant to be noisy, but to let one know that we are here to care. Good,bad,sad, happy moments. So should you want to share, feel free to email, call and let me know how I can be there to acknowledge the event, with a card, from the club. Any suggestion are all ways welcome. Looking forward to your messages.... As ever, Maria Duran

Did you know? (courtesy of FWSA):

Women’s Ski Jumping Names New Executive Director:  Women’s Ski Jumping USA has hired Melissa Brooke as the foundation’s new Executive Director. Brooke, of Park City , Utah , will support the top-ranked Visa Women’s Ski Jumping Team and the new Fly Girls Athlete Development Program as the foundation continues to grow and flourish, thanks to the success and debut of women’s ski jumping in the Olympic Winter Games.

 

Julia Mancuso Presented FWSA President Award:  Julia Mancuso, the most decorated American Olympic female alpine skier, was presented with the Far West President's award at this year's Far West Ski Association Convention in Bend , Oregon .  “Super-Jules” – as she is called by her teammates – has an on-snow resume boasting five World Cup wins, four World Championship podium finishes and three Olympic medals, including a gold in the giant slalom at the 2006 games in Turin , Italy .  Congratulations, Julia.

 

USSA Athletes Win Three ESPY Awards:  The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Snowboard Slopestyle medalists Jamie Anderson and Sage Kotsenburg, have won three 2014 ESPY Awards.  Jamie was named Best Female Action Sports Athlete and Best Female U.S. Olympian.  Sage was chosen as Best Male U.S. Olympian.  USSA was the most represented sports organization at the Awards, with nine Olympic athletes nominated in five categories.  Other nominees included Sochi Olympians: Mikaela Shiffrin, David Wise, Maddie Bowman, Kelly Clark, Kaitlyn Farrington, Joss Christensen and Ted Ligety.  Congratulations to all of these fine athletes for their hard work!

 

Snow Country's Best Mountain Resort Bike Parks:  Throughout the summer, many ski areas turn their resorts, hills and chair lifts into bike parks, offering up miles of downhill riding for all levels of mountain bikers.  These bike parks create long, steep, bumpy rides found on the typical trail in most mountain biking parks.  Riders can scream straight downhill, like an alpine racer, while negotiating twists and turns, rocks and stumps on the way.  For the more mellow bikers, parks cut long, slow-swinging novice runs, similar to the green runs of the winter.  Some of the parks recommended by Snow Country include: Angel Fire, Crested Butte , Winter Park , Whistler, Northstar, Deer Valley and Sunday River .
