February 6’s Powder 8’s Grand Nationals in Jackson Hole could not have been a cooler, current take on an old-school classic competition. A triumphant return of the historic event to Cody Bowl’s Powder 8 face was a perfect alignment of conditions, weather, qualified skiers and a whole lot of ski spirit.

Cutting to the chase, here are the results of the Grand National Powder 8’s, sponsored by GoPro.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort would like to say thank you to all that made this event possible. From the 22 teams competing, the ski patrol controlling the slope, JHMR’s race crew, the fans watching, and Nick Wilson’s after party, the event went off without a hitch.

The day was truly a great one in Jackson Hole history on this 50th Grand Reunion Weekend. RELIVE THE DREAM!
