Under sunny skies and blessed with amazingly warm temperatures, the ATP Slopestyle Competition at Attitash offered up a great show on Saturday, as some of the region’s young guns battled it out for local terrain park supremacy.

From stylish grabs to inverted aerial maneuvers, 40 young skiers and riders took on a tough slopestyle course laid out by the Attitash park crew on Thad’s Choice.

Working their way down the course, the competitors faced a diverse array of challenging kickers, rails, cannon rails and tabletops as they showed their best five scoring maneuvers in an attempt to reach the awards podium.

Surviving the battle and earning top honors in their respective categories were Leland Broadhurst (under 11 ski) Ben Emery (12-15 ski) Vinson Pflug (12-15 snowboard) Chris Charles (16-20 ski) and Richie Watson (16-20 snowboard).

Congratulations to our winners and a special thanks to event sponsors Red Bull, Smith, Dakine and Keen.

Up next in the on snow event schedule is the next of the U Go Girls competitions to benefit the Susan G. Komen race for the cure, with the U Go Girls Big Air Competition on January 30.  We’ll see you then!
