SHAUN WHITE WINS GOLD WITH TRICKS LEARNED
at Silverton Mountain.
Silverton, Colo., February 18, 2010… After a winter at Silverton Mountain secretly training for the winter Olympics, Shaun White delivers bringing home the gold medal. The winning runs included the double corks and double cabs both which were learned at a secret half pipe at Colorado’s Silverton Mountain Ski Area.
Shaun spent the winter of 2009 learning new tricks for the Olympics with his own super pipe built at Silverton Mountain. Many people wondered why Silverton Mountain Red Bull which is known for having expert only backcountry terrain, would allow Shaun and Red Bull to build a half pipe. Aaron Brill the founder of Silverton Mountain responded with “Silverton Mountain is all about pushing the limits and boundaries of what is possible on snow, and Shaun has set the new standard of what can be done in a half pipe like never before. You don’t know if can be done if you don’t give it a go.”
