In the end it was the local hero, sixteen year old Noah Killen from Champion, PA who claimed the plane ticket to Mammoth. Noah impressed his peers with smooth rodeo 7’s and “Dadalian” switch-ups on the rails. “This was the chillest comp ever and everyone should get out to one of these if you can, said Killen. It was really fun to ski with Mike Clarke and all the guys.”
Right on the heels of Noah were Spencer Milbrocker in second, and Steven Larick in third. Both athletes will receive new Salomon set ups.
Salomon would like to give a tremendous thanks to Willi’s Ski and Board Shop – www.thejibshop.com , Seven Springs Resort and their amazing Park Crew! We highly recommend checking this place out!
