Kelly Clark Wins Second Annual Covergirl Snow Angels Invitational

“Will work for massage.”  No, that was not a sign held up by one of the 15 world’s best women snowboarders this past weekend.  But, massages were indeed part of the prize packages doled out.  Kelly Clark took top honors in the superpipe and the 10k check that went along with her victory.  

Gretchen Bleiler’s signature event was a huge success.  “Everything came together with the weather and conditions and I’m really happy about how the contest went,” said Bleiler.  “The whole weekend has been amazing and we are so lucky to come together for such a unique and progressive event.”

Best trick, highest air, and most progressive riding champions all grabbed $150 in cash, and a facial and massage from Full Circle Massage.  Yoga instruction, spa activities, and environmental workshops were all part of the weekend festivities.

Saturday night, the ladies all received makeovers from CoverGirl and then headed out to the Belly Up in Aspen.  Pretty Lights provided the beats for the pretty ladies on hand.

The event was originally scheduled for Saturday, but after a foot of snow fell on Snowmass that day, the ladies ditched the park for a freeriding session all over the mountain, led by Aspen/Snowmass local Bleiler.

The final results are as follows:
1st – Kelly Clark – $10,000
2nd – Gretchen Bleiler – $4,500
3rd – Ellery Hollingsworth – $2,000
4th – Linn Haug – $1,000
5th – Kaitlyn Farrington – $500
