It was a career best second-place showing for Butte, Montana mogul man Bryon Wilson.  “It’s my best result ever.  I’m pretty excited. I felt pretty good in finals, I just pushed out of the gate, did my double full and then charged the middle section. I knew it was a good run.”

Going into his fourth year on the U.S. team, expectations were ramped up for the former junior world champion and most recent U.S. national champion.

“Great stuff for Bryon,” Moguls Head Coach Scott Rawles said. “He’s had a lot of success at a lot of different levels, but this is the first time he’s been on the World Cup podium. We knew it was going to happen and that he had the potential to do it, and it was great to see him put it together tonight.”

Reigning World Cup moguls champion Hannah Kearney (Norwich, VT) took third on the ladies side.  “On my second run, I just gave it away,” Kearney said.
