1. Week Three of Trek with the Amazing Skiing Polar Bears, we worked on some off-piste skiing, a little bit of carving and going fast, and enjoyed cake, the CU race team, and Eldora Mountain Resort's 50th Birthday, celebrating their opening day their very first year. Ava and Anne earned the right to wear the Liquid Image goggles as we cut our way across Powderhorn, Windmill, Sundance, Klondike, and International.

  2. The second week of Eldora's Trek program, the Snow Cats worked on edge work in the morning. We played with flatspins, a little bit on butters, and railroad track turns. In the afternoon, we ripped up the backside of Eldora despite brutally cold temperatures and lightly falling snow. Though Abigail was the first to wear the Liquid Image goggles, everyone got the chance to check them out and Dennis, Nikki, and Elise got some great shots coming down. Next week, Samantha and Tehya will have first shot at wearing them.

  3. In Week Three, the Snow Cats performed an Audio Feedback Experiment. We thought about rhythm, what we could hear and feel, and how our timing can change turn to turn. We also tried to put a lot of milage under us and performed a mid-mountain rescue for another class. It's amazing how much what we can hear affects how we ski.

  4. Week 4 featured guest instruction from Molly Holmes. The Amazing Skiing Polar Bears delved to the backside and played on some blacks including Muleshoe and Corona. They worked on hand and body position, a little bit of jumping, and slope awareness. Despite my absence, Aliza wore the goggles for a run, providing just enough footage for this week's video.

  5. Week 4 of Trek with the Snow Cats featured two new faces in Cai and Tas. We went through some of the basic park maneuvers and, after shredding the backside looking for jumps, we built our own little terrain park playground at the base. The Freeriders joined us, as did a couple other groups. It was a treat to watch the group push their limits and stretch into a less comfortable realm.
