Chen Cup Cups

Yesterday, Ashley and I participated in the Chen Cup. The Chen Cup is an annual race amongst civil engineering companies, mostly in Colorado. Events include alpine giant slalom (GS), telemark GS, snowboard GS, 8K skate ski, and 8K classic ski. This year, the event was held at none other than our home ski area of Eldora. The weather was sunny and clear most of the day, which made for a very pleasant day of events.

My company, Golder, had participants entered in every category, which made us eligible for the team competition. We were hoping for a gold but ended up taking silver, losing 60 to 64 to Tetra Tec. Individually, Ashley participated in the 8K skate ski and I participated in the telemark GS. We both did our part in scoring points for the team, with Ashley finishing 3rd for females in the skate ski and me finishing 1st for men in the telemark GS! The top three finishers in each category received mugs for their efforts, so we both got to take home Chen Cup cups.
