Whitman’s back on the slopes

Emma+WhitmanSpending the summer in Calgary, slopestyle skier Emma Whitman joined the Winsport Academy Olympic development team. She headed to Summit County, Colorado to get some early season training in the open terrain parks.

Fresh off a slightly disappointing result at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colo., Whitman has set her sights on future events in Whistler, Aspen and three locations in Europe.

“At this point the winter X-Games are a bit of a long shot, but a girl can hope,” she says.

SPIN will be keeping up with Whitman’s efforts to qualify for the World Cup Series.
