Postcard: Wolf Creek moguls practice

The U.S. Freestyle Moguls Team just wrapped up a week of training at Wolf Creek Ski Area in southern Colorado, a first step of sorts toward the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Russia’s Caucasus Mountains. I took in some of their runs on a day that saw the hill receive nearly a foot of new snow, which is par for the course at the ski area that receives the most snow in Colorado. Here they take a break from training runs to slip the course, wiping away the powder to restore the bumps to their icy foundation. (Click the image to enlarge.)
