Tom Wallisch won the VISA U.S. Grand Prix, FIS World Cup and platinum AFP slopestyle event with a 96.40 and in his signature style he stomped all of his tricks and executed them with confidence. His consistent podium placement has elevated him to be the winningest male slopestyle skier in history. Wallisch was followed by Canada’s Alex Bellemare who took second and Joss Christiansen in third.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better day today, the course was smooth and the snow was soft, not to mention the park was sweet. It was an awesome event and I am so happy that the U.S. Grand Prix is here to help us show the world what our sport is about, it sets a good precedence for the next events that we do leading up to Sochi in 2014. I can’t wait!”, said Wallisch.
Devin Logan took second in women’s slopestyle with her big air and solid landings. Logan was edged out by Canada’s Kaya Turski who took first place and followed by Emilia Wint who took third.
“My season so far has been great and I am extremely excited with how everything is going. I’m just trying to keep it clean and solid and work on some new tricks and Devin and Anna, a lot of girls really, are stepping it up, it’s really cool to come out on top. It makes me proud! The course at the Visa U.S. Grand Prix was really nice, I am proud to have Mammoth as my home mountain and it’s great that I can be here to represent”, said Logan.
