Dew Tour 2013

The Breckenridge Dew Tour was the first of five Olympic selection events for US Olympic hopefuls like myself to make our mark. Starting off the week strong I qualified 1st on Wednesday with a score of 89.6 (results and writeup). On Friday morning it came down to the last run of Superpipe Finals, my second run and final chance to wow the judges (results and writeup). With a score of 89.0 I landed myself 2nd place and walked away with 800 points towards my Olympic ranking (ranking and writeup).

All smiles!

To top off my exciting result, America swept the podium with Maddie Bowman in 1st and Brita Sigourney in 3rd!

I am overjoyed and grateful to start off the season on such a high note! Big thanks to my coach Luke Allen, my amazing friends and family, my sponsors AtomicOakley and LymeLight Foundation and everyone who believes in my skiing.

Next up is the Copper Grand Prix this week. Qualifying on Thursday and finals on Friday. This event is the 2nd of 5 Olympic selection events. The “Road to Sochi” rolls on.
