Rounding out the afternoon will feature music by bands, Paperbird out of Denver, and Boulder’s own crooner Jeff Brinkman hosted on the Clean Water Tour stage. A fundraising organic lemonade stand –non-alcoholic and options to ‘spike’ are compliments of Breckenridge Distillery along with a beer tent offering responsibly brewed local beer with proceeds going to High Country Conservation for the 2014 Greenhouse at Colorado Mountain Project installation College facility in Breckenridge.
 
Chanelle Sladics, a former pro snowboarder herself, derived and created the event. “I just didn’t see any events out there that truly recognized and moved women’s snowboarding in the most progressive manner possible,” says Sladics.  “The creation of the judging promises to showcase women’s talents far beyond what normal events demonstrate and athletes will be able to manifest their talent and execute their best tricks at this event!”
 
As the only event in the world recognized as a 5-Star women’s snowboarding event, Community Cup 2014 presented by Volvo, will feature pro snowboarders Olympic gold medalist Jamie Anderson, along with Great Britain’s bronze medalist Jenny Jones, and fellow Olympian contenders Kjersti Buass, Sarka Pancochova, Silje Norendal, Cheryl Maas, Christy Prior, Anna Gasser, to name a few. Athletes will be able to bring their semi-final scores into the finals and build off that score –with three additional runs for optimal progression. The event takes place at Keystone Resort in A51 Terrain Park starting on Saturday at 10am.
 
Community Cup 2014 will showcase professional athletes and Olympians competing in a friendly, progressive atmosphere. The whole event is executing a sustainable approach to food, water, reusables, festivities, recycling and utilizing recycling/organic materials in all Community Cup-specific banners and competitors’ bibs.
