X Games viewing for Girl Scouts

The X Games returns to Aspen, Colorado’s Buttermilk Mountain, for the world’s best action sports, music, and festival experience – on snow! All Girl Scouts are invited to an exclusive viewing section of the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle Final and the Women’s Snowboard SuperPipe on Saturday, January 26, 2019.

11 a.m. – Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle Final

8:45 p.m. – Women’s Snowboard SuperPipe

Girls will also have an opportunity to meet and greet with the female athletes and learn which ones were Girl Scouts. The Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle Final at 11 a.m. will likely be televised and girls should be prepared to be on camera.

This is not a drop-off event. Adult to girl ratios for events must be met. Girls attending with a troop leader should bring a completed parent permission form for a Girl Scout activity that troop leaders will retain for their records.

Cookie connoisseurs at Aspen St. Regis

The Aspen St. Regis hotel was host to girls from Troop 13723 of Aspen and Troop 10065 of Grand Junction who acted as judges for a Girl Scout cookie dessert making contest. The St. Regis launched their inaugural Camp Astor, inspired by founder John Jacob Astor IV and his love for Lake St. Regis in upstate New York, as a summer offering packed with outdoor adventures. This event provided a sampling of the camp to a select party of journalists. Part of the fun was competing for the coveted “golden whisk” by creating the most mouthwatering dessert using Girl Scout Cookies as an ingredient. The girls, as a panel of cookie connoisseurs, examined, tasted, and deliberated as a group to determine the winner based on presentation, taste, and use of the cookie. The girls and their families were treated to a fabulous outdoor feast, tutorial on sabering champagne, and a sing-a-long by the pool, all with the beautiful backdrop of Aspen. Director of Marketing Jessica Young was a Girl Scout as a girl and when envisioning a camp event, thought it would be incomplete without Girl Scouts. We had a great time and hope to do more with our new friends at the St. Regis.
