Stale Sandbech out sloped everyone to win slopestyle at the Copper Grand Prix

Copper Mountain just played host to the first leg of the Grand Prix this past weekend and continued the excitement that the Winter Dew Tour started. Shaun White's ankle seemed to be all better after reaggravating a previous injury, but in slopestyle it didn't matter much about White's ankle. That's because Norwegian Stale Sandbech stole the show. Laying down a 97 out of 100 in his final run, which included a line of a Cab 1260 to a backside flatspin 1440 to a frontside 1080, Sandbech trumped the entire field. For more on the Copper Grand Prix head over to Transworld Snow.

Elena Hight is dedicated to bouncing back after a slow start at Dew Tour

Pro snowboarder Elena Hight's competitive season didn't start off quite as planned. At the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, the first qualifying event for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, Hight fell on both of her runs. But as she says on the latest episode of her series "Hight Hopes" sometimes shit just happens. Nobody ever said getting to the Olympics was easy and Hight is dedicated to bouncing back at the upcoming qualifying events.

Check out Episode 1 of "Hight Hopes" here.

Getting down on one knee to propose isn't easy on skis

Interesting marriage proposals are a thing. This skier decided to pop the question to his girlfriend on the slopes at Copper Mountain. In full view of all the gapers on the chairlift, he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. It's pretty impressive how smoothly he gets down on the knee. That doesn't look easy, and is one place where skiers have an advantage over snowboarders.

What do you think of this marriage proposal? Tell us in the Comments.
