Powder Mountain Hosts Grom Fest on January 12
January 8, 2009
Powder Mountain will be hosting its first competition for youth aged 10 and younger on January 12, 2008. Young up and coming skiers and boarders, nicknamed Groms, can really show off their skills on courses specially set up for their age group. Events include mini-downhill races and a mini-slopestyle competition. A separate age class will be set up for competitors 5 years old and younger. The $5 registration fee includes a hot dog lunch and a prize. Registration will begin at the Sundown Lodge at 9:30 AM.
“Grom-Fest is the only contest in Utah starring our up and coming athletes who are just starting out in the sports,” said Dave Jessup, Terrain Parks Manager.
The resort plans to make the competition an annual event in order to encourage youth to try out winter sports and to groom future competitors. Powder Mountain reactivated its Alpine Race Team this season and is a strong supporter of other Alpine and Freestyle Teams in the Ogden area.
