Grenade Games 5: Dual Slalom Moguls
23 Apr, 2009
On Tuesday, the Grenade Games 5 started in Whister, BC with a variety of competitions and activities planned. Wednesday’s contest was the Dual Slalom Moguls on top of Blackcomb Mountain. To make things more difficult for the athletes, even by the 11am start time the mountain had icy conditions.
With the icy conditions, the moguls looked rough and even more rough when I watched professional snowboarders sideslipping in the event.
The base area was stocked with competitors and spectators enjoying the Monster energy drinks and BBQ grill going on.
We made our way down to the bottom to enjoy the grill and free drinks while watching the event go on.
The snow started to soften up and spectators starting to enjoy chucking snowballs at the riders coming down.
I ran into my friend Tara working the event. She was the brew/grillmaster at the BBQ session and did a damn fine job.
Thursday’s events are the Grenade Games Qualifiers which I’ll be missing to check out the Prior Factory. I’ll be back on snow Friday to check out the Demo Park for 09-10 demos and the Grenade Games Superpipe Finals!
