Bowl bash wraps Spring Jam
The Aspen Times
Spring Jam jams on.
The annual Bud Light Spring Jam in Aspen and Snowmass heads to its final day and its final events today.
The annual Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls will take off at Aspen Highlands to wrap up Spring Jam.
The annual up-down competition in the bowls at Aspen Highlands will include a new division this year.
In addition to the competitive teams of two in skiing and snowboarding, there also is a family-friendly Adventure Division with teams of two-to-five participants.
They will ski and follow a scavenger hunt-like course consisting of intermediate and advanced runs at Aspen Highlands.
“This is aimed at families and groups of friends instead of more hardcore athletes,” said Jeff Hanle, the director of public relations for the Aspen Skiing Co. The special course also will take participants to Aspen Highlands’ most unique locations.
Registration is $45 per person. Registration will include a limited edition 2014 Helly Hansen Battle in the Bowls base layer and entrance to the after-event party at the Highlands Alehouse. Special $62 lift tickets will be available for the event.

Also today, the finals of the Red Bull Double Pipe competition will be held at Buttermilk starting at 10 a.m.
Spring Jam events Friday included the first banked slalom race for snowboarders at Sandy Park in the Elk Camp area of Snowmass Ski Area.
More than 100 riders participated.
“Sandy Park has always been one of the most fun runs on Snowmass and adding a bunch of perfectly shaped berm turns only makes it better,” said Tyler Lindsay, AVSC program director.
In the women 16 and over division, Kelly Baker won with Ashley Conner second and Corianne Lambert.
For men 16 and older, Cleve Johnson won with Matt Boughton second. Lucas Dehmlow finished third.
In the boys 10-15 category, MJ Mirano was the winner.
logan Lautter finished second.
Johnny Weiss was third.

Sophomore Ava Lane is a flourishing star in her own right, but spends a lot of her time trying to chase down senior Sierra Bower and sophomore Katelyn Maley, both in practice and in races. This, however, is only making her stronger down the line and it’s not a task she will shy away from.
