Indiana-native Nick Goepper took home the Dumont Cup in 2011 as an amateur and two years later, he now takes home the 2013 Dumont Cup as one of the most recognized professional freeskiers in the world!

Goepper’s winning slopestyle run earned him 95 points while the second place finisher, Gus Kenworthy of Colorado earned 92.7 points. Joss Christensen finished just behind Kenworthy with 91.7 points.

Goepper pockets $10,000 in cash, while Kenworthy earns himself $5,000 and Christensen $2,000. The three winners are also invited to the Team O’Neill Rally School in New Hampshire for some off-road driving instruction with Dumont Cup founder Simon Dumont.

Goepper, Kenworthy and Christensen were all part of a group of a dozen professional skiers and nearly 80 amateur skiers who traveled to the slopes of Sunday River Resort in Maine to compete in the two-day fifth annual Dumont Cup–the largest freeskiing event on the East Coast, and the ONLY platinum-level slopestyle event recognized by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP).

The Dumont Cup was founded by X Games gold medalist and 2014 Olympic hopeful Simon Dumont, in a partnership between event organizers Aura360 and host Sunday River Resort. The event takes place in the resort’s Rocking Chair terrain park.
