I bumped into 2009 X Games Slopestyle Gold Medalist Jenny Jones at the Salomon booth. I was with her when she noticed the writing on the display that said "Jenny Jones 2009 X-Games Gold Medalist". Jenny seemed a little shocked to see it in writing. I don’t think her win had really sunk in yet!

I told her that our readers (you guys!) were really excited about her win. Jenny told me to give a shout out to Lucie and the whole crew.


SIA Recap

I spent part of last week in Las Vegas for the annual Snowsports Industry Association’s show. You’ve probably heard it called SIA, and this was the last Vegas show before it all moves to Denver.

I arrived in Vegas late on Tuesday night and was picked up by Tali, our West Coast Correspondent and my partner-in-crime at the show.  We went to check into the Mandalay Bay and got upgraded from a regular room to a posh suite in theHOTEL. SIA was starting out well.
