The first week of December, eleven women from all over North America gathered in Dresser, Wisconsin at Trollhaugen resort. For months, Troll marketing director Marsha Hovey, alongside diggers Jess Goucher and Laura Rogoski and cat operater, Chloe Butel had been setting things in motion for the first-ever terrain park built by women for all humans to enjoy.
Women arrived in the Midwest from California, Utah, British Columbia, and Wyoming to represent females from the operations side of the resort world and built out the legendary Valhalla park at Troll. Joining Laura (Brighton), Chloe (Sierra-at-Tahoe), and Jess (Jackson Hole) were Harmonee Johnson (Mammoth), Emily O’Connor (Trollhaugen), Abby Lewis (Timberline), Anny Vongsavanh (Woodward Tahoe), Egan Wint (Brighton), Hannah Petersen (Trollhaugen), Natawnie Spellacy (Jackson Hole), and Haley Boucot (Woodward Park City). (You can learn more about everyone in the crew here.)
