Last winter JHMR brought back the Powder 8 competition after a fifteen year hiatus as part of the 50th Anniversary programming. The competition was so well received, that JHMR is pleased to make the event an annual tradition again. “Last year we had a great turn out of teams from all over the west, not to mention hundreds of spectators for the Grand Nationals,” stated Bill Lewkowitz, JHMR Business Development Director. “The competition day was full of fun and really brought the spirit of skiing to life in a safe and enjoyable way,” Lewkowitz went on to note. This year the invitational team contest will host approximately 22 teams invited from a variety of western resorts, with over $10,000 in cash and prizes for the top three finishing teams. Three judges will be ranking teams based on historical requirements, including style, symmetry and synchronization. Click here for more information on the Grand National Powder 8s.
