Kaya Turski, freeskiings ‘Golden Girl,’ came back from a season ending knee injury to win an unprecedented third X Games gold in a row in the Slopestyle event at Winter X 15 last January.  Only four short years on skis, the Quebec native burst on the freeski scene with 2 golds at X Games 14 and appeared in a movie segment for Level 1 Films. 

She chose to skip the Breckenridge Dew Tour to be as strong and fresh as possible for Winter X.  Leading from bell to bell with a first run score of 93.66, she was all smiles and continued her dominance of the sport. 

Kaya will be at her favorite mountain of Mammoth Mountain in California to train for the Snowbasin installment of the Dew Tour and the Euro X Games where she will defend yet another title.  Go get em girl!
