Powder Mountain is the official & home North American jumping resort and facility for the “Australian Flying Kangaroos” OWIA/VIS National Team Aerial Skiing program.
Major earth works have taken place during the past two summers to construct a jump site to full FIS specifications. During this season Powder Mountain has provided excellent staff and equipment who pushed the snow to build both the aerial site and jumps, and have since maintained the facility in ideal condition.
The completely new training facility this season has provided both inverted aerial jumps and upright jumps, ideal for many of the VIS athletes performing their first jumps on snow.
OWIA CEO Geoff Lipshut was extremely grateful for the leading training facility provided by Powder Mountain for our development athletes and visited the resort to attend a training session during early February.
OWIA CEO Geoff Lipshut was extremely thankful and enthusiastic about the training facility provided by Powder Mountain for the aerial skiing development athletes, and was able to visit the resort to attend a training session during early February.
“The training available to the athletes was just fantastic. Our athletes really enjoyed the perfect snow conditions and the quick turnaround with the chairlift perfectly placed to make training both convenient and efficient. When I was there, the weather was great, I saw the athletes loving being on the jump hill, and I was impressed with the standard of first ever jumps the athletes were performing."
"This facility will only be better in the future, Powder Mountain and their staff are to be congratulated on a job really well done!”
