Torin Yater-Wallace Takes Fist in Superpipe to Become the Youngest Winter Dew Tour Winner

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 22, 2012 2:42 pm

During Friday’s Winter Dew Tour freeski superpipe the 16-year-old Torin Yater-Wallace showed the industry what the future holds for the sport by becoming the youngest athlete to earn a first place finish in the Dew Tour. The young skier started his run with a double cork 1260 mute, a left 900 tailgrab, and a double flair mute, finishing with an alley-oop flat 360 safety and a switch 900 mute. Tai Barrymore took second place and Tucker Perkins came in third.

“My first run couldn’t have gone better, so I wasn’t nervous on my next run and just sent it,” said Yater-Wallace, following his win.  “I went a little bigger, got bigger grabs and instead of a switch 7, I went switch 9.  I ended up stomping it and I’ve never done a switch 9, so luckily I landed it.  I’m so stoked.  I’ve never podium at a Dew Tour and I’ve never gotten first at a pro event, so it’s a good day for everything.”

The ladies embarked on of freeski finals at Killington’s superpipe during the afternoon.  Maddie Bowman had a first place run that also launched her into the lead for the race to the Dew Cup.  She started with a straight air, a left 900, and a second straight air, followed by a left 540 into a right 540, and finished off with a left 720. Devin Logan came in second and Brita Sigourney took third.

Bowman was just as thrilled for her fellow competitors as she was for herself.  “I was just stoked to be skiing and to watch all the other girls ski,” she said.  “We had a great time and it was really fun.”
