    Nearly two-dozen skiers were on hand for the first-ever contest, but really, the Tanner Hall Invitational, held at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort, was just a massive jam session between friends and fellow stylists – and it was just one of three celebrations of skiing going on across the country, which included a Chinese Downhill and the Dumont Cup.

    Simon Dumont shouldn’t have been on the Superpipe podium last month in Aspen. Based on the condition of his wrists, he probably shouldn’t have had more than a commentator role at Winter X Games. Instead, there he stood on Day 2, a Bronze Medal around his neck and a left wrist wrapped in tape. There are characteristics about elite athletes that set them apart from the rest of us, and talent is just part of it. It’s also intestinal fortitude and a determination and dedication to put everything on the line. Dumont wasn’t going to sit on the sidelines despite his badly injured left wrist; that’s why he’s him and we’re us.

    The unpredictability of Winter X Games is part of the event’s appeal. New tricks, new names, upsets, surprises and general stimuli overload. The crowds, the tricks, the crashes, the variables, it all adds to the excitement. Those elements, along with the constant commitment to innovation at almost every level. In the weeks and months leading up to Winter X in Aspen, Colo., Henrik Harlaut had stayed away from anything resembling a traditional training program. Instead, the 21-year-old Swede had been touring the East Coast, skiing icy slopes as part of the Inspired Demo Tour. Small mountains with the occasional rail and maybe a small jump or two. Nothing close to what’d he encounter in Big Air and Slopestyle with the eyes of the world watching.
