The top skiers and boarders on the planet are landing in Colorado for the 2005 Winter Gravity Games.

2005 Gravity Games - What?

The Winter Gravity Games is an action sports and music festival featuring some of the world's best snowboarders and skiers. The Games include halfpipe and slopestyle events, as well as a skiercross and boardercross competition. The four-day event will feature some of the year's biggest airs, sickest railslides and wildest wipeouts.

2005 Gravity Games - Who?

The boarders and skiers at the 2005 Winter Gravity Games include the top finishers from other skiing and snowboarding events around the world:
  • Antti Autti - Teenage snowboarder from Finland who's snowboarding tricks are even wilder than his name. Antti took the gold in snowboarding superpipe at the 2005 Winter X Games.
  • Danny Kass - The former snowboarding silver medalist in halfpipe, Danny Kass will be looking to grab a medal in slopestyle and halfpipe at this year's Gravity Games.
  • Hannah Teter - This teen boarding babe from Vermont has won medals in SuperPipe at the last two Winter X Games and will be a favorite to land on the podium at the 2005 Gravity Games.
  • Janna Meyen - Janna is the queen of women's slopestyle snowboarding over the past few years, by winning just about every major competition she's entered. She could railslide in her sleep and makes landing 540s look easier than getting out of bed.
  • Tanner Hall - Tanner is a fan favorite for his gravity-defying maneuvers in both the skiing slopestyle and halfpipe events. He won two silver medals at the 2005 Winter X Games and will likely hit the podium at the Gravity Games.
  • 2005 Gravity Games - When and Where?

    The 2005 Gravity Games take place March 3-6 at Copper Mountain, Colorado. If you can't make it to Colorado to see the Games live, you can always catch them on television from March 27-30th on Outdoor Life Network (www.oln.com.)

    2005 Gravity Games - Why?

    What's better than watching the planet's best freestyle boarders and skiers push their limits and do their best to defy gravity? Besides, there's nothing else worth watching at this time of year! The NFL is over, baseball doesn't start for another month, the NHL's cancelled and you'll see more air at the Gravity Games than you will at any NBA game.

    Do You Watch Action Sports on TV?

    • All the time - I love skateboarding, snowboarding, etc.
    • No - I like watching NBA or baseball better.
    • Once in a while, if there's nothing else on.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
