I made it a point to get to Heavenly this past Saturday, and got some vids and pix of at the 9th Annual Gunbarrel 25. Sorry for the quality - just have a very cheap, low end pocket camcorder, and the batteries died the one time I went down myself and was videoing GP going by! Damn you, Murphy! Argh!
The only real downside was that the snow is so thin on the lower half of Gunbarrel that they cut over above the traverse/cat track to East Bowl and then finished up on the World Cup run at the very bottom, where they'd set up a few gates. So unfortunately you couldn't just hang out by the lift (or in the cafe/bar) and watch everyone ski bumps right up to it, but otherwise it was a beautiful day, and a good time was had by all!

Amazingly Beautiful Tahoe!
And of course, my personal favorite!
Glen, of course, was very gracious with his time, and frequently stopped to chat with people up top or on the hill, but Kimberly truly was an iron woman. I left a little after 4pm, (they planned to run it till 4:20), and she was going for yet another lap, as she had been steadily all day! Haven't heard the results, but wouldn't be surprised if she won the Iron Woman title again this year! In person they are both awesome and ski bumps like breathing!
10th Annual Next Year! Be there! Aloha!
