Popping The Cork
Michigan State University's Andrew Krause throws a corked backside 540 Saturday on Baldy's halfpipe during the United States Collegiate Skiing and Snowboarding National Championships. Krause earned a fourth-place finish in the men's snowboard halfpipe finals, one of numerous competitions held in Sun Valley last week. Sun Valley Co. spokesman Jack Sibbach said the USCSA championships was a great marketing event for all of the community. "It was fun having close to 500 college-aged athletes for a week. We got to show off our mountain and community and we hope to have them back in 2013 when the event returns to the West," he said.
