CoverGirl Snow Angels Invitational Invades Aspen/Snowmass

Aspen/Snowmass and Gretchen Bleiler are bringing back the super stylin’ event for the third year in a row! CoverGirl Snow Angels Invitationalfeatures an all-female snowboard superpipe contest and lifestyle weekend in Aspen/Snowmass from April 2-4.

The Snow Angels Invitational is a highly anticipated event created by Gretchen Bleiler.The leading ladies of shred love this event because it is set up as a competition loaded with prizes but carries little pressure unlike other events. Olympian Elena Hight returns this year for the fun and claimed “I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited before a contest started!”

The mellow gathering fosters an environment for pro women to come together and enjoy a weekend of freeriding, photoshoots and fun that culminates with a $20,000 prize purse pipe comp and a “Girls Night Out’ event at Belly Up in Aspen.

Last year Kelly Clark took the win, followed by Gretchen Bleiler and Ellery Hollingsworth. With all the up and coming talent in an attendance it will surely be a showdown for the win.

Check out this video recap from last year’s event and see why this contest is such a blast.

GrindTv will be on site to bring you all the action & relaxin’ going down in Aspen so check back!
