Each year a special someone is chosen that best embodies the spirit of Powder Week. This person is picked based on their on and off hill performances meaning late night shots at the Moose are followed by early morning drops into Corbets so on and so forth. They are awarded with the coveted Captain’s Cup, named in honor of Dave Moe, the founder of the magazine and creator of the infamous Captain Powder character. During Powder Week in Jackson I witnessed many folks conquering the mountain and bar but only one man on a fun booze-filled shred mission for the cup. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the man that took it home with only one ski under his feet, Ross Janzen. -Mike Rogge

Mono-ripper Ross Janzen earns this years cup with great performances on and off the snow.
