New blood involved in the Badger State Winter Games is expected to make it a hot one on the cool slopes next weekend, according to an event spokesperson. The games Snowboarding and Freestyle Skiing events will take place the weekend of February 6th with two new commissioners, Brian and Dana Wilson.
The husband and wife are among only a few Wisconsinites who hold a level two standing in Snowboarding Technical Supervisor Certification, according Jessica Gammey, spokesperson with the events organizer Wisconsin Sports Development Corporation.
The "superbowl of extreme sports," the X-Games require a level three certification.
Gammey says the Wilsons will bring more edge to the games with a DJ who worked in Los Angeles as well as a prize and product toss.
The events take place at Granite Peak in the Wausau area. Interested participants are encouraged to register online at badgerstategames.org .
