We've been following Clair Bidez all season on the U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix and Winter Dew Tour, but apparently we hadn't seen everything yet:

The 22 year-old snowboarder from Minturn, Colorado is peeling off her winter base layers this week for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2010, alongside Olympic snowboarder Hannah Teter, alpine ski racer Lindsay Vonn, and aerial skier Lacy Schnoor. The athletes were photographed by Warwick Saint at Whistler Blackcomb Resort in Whistler, Canada.

Bidez is a member of the U.S. Snowboarding team - though she's not actually on the Olympic team, as the SI.com spread seems to imply - and also rides for Copper Mountain. She is sponsored by Nikita, Flow, Helly Hansen, and Rip It. We're guessing she just might pick up a few new sponsors, and a few new fans, with this swimsuit spread.



Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
