Torin Yater-Wallace showed the freeski community a glimpse of the future by becoming the youngest athlete to ever win a Winter Dew Tour final during Men's Ski Superpipe Finals today, with Wing Tai Barrymore in second and Tucker Perkins in third.

Tucker Perkins

The 16-year-old started his run with a double cork 1260 mute, a left 900 tail grab, and a double flair mute, finishing with an alley-oop flat 360 safety to a switch 900 mute.

"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 better 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 podiumed at a Dew Tour and I’ve

never gotten first at a pro event, so it’s a good day for everything.”

Torin Yater-Wallace picks up his first win at a pro-level competition.

A little earlier in the day, the ladies kicked off the afternoon with Women's Ski Superpipe Finals in Killington’s superpipe. Maddie Bowman brought amplitude and style to a run that landed her in first place for the Pantech Invitational and put her in the lead for the race to the Dew Cup. She started with a straight air, to left 900, a second straight air, followed by a left 540 into a right 540, and finished things off with a left 720. Bowman was just as happy for the success of her fellow competitors over the weekend. “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.”

Just behind Bowman in second was Devin Logan with an 86.00, while Brita Sigourney grabbed the final spot on the podium in third with a score of 85.00. All of the competitors will have the option to sign over their winnings as a contribution on behalf of freeski icon Sarah Burke. “Sarah was a friend and an idol,” said Bowman, following her win. “She was so kind-hearted, and we’re skiing for her always. She’ll never be forgotten.” For more information, please go to http://www.giveforward.com/sarahburke.

Prior to Men's and Women's Ski Superpipe Finals, Men's and Women's Ski Slopestyle Semi-Finals went down, where Bobby Brown started off Saturday morning right by taking the top spot as snow fell on Killington. After some concerns about high winds Friday afternoon, slope action was postponed until today, leaving many competitors chomping at the bit to make tomorrow's finals.

Brown wasted no time starting off a technical rail section with a 270 on backside 360 switch-up 270 out, followed by a misty flip 450 off the cannon box, into a switch left bio 9 mute, right double cork 10 mute, and a left double cork 10 tail to score a 89.67 on his first run.

Dane Tudor

Russ Henshaw

Dane Tudor and Russ Henshaw also put on stellar performances to finish second and third respectively, and the top 11 men will now advance to Sunday's finals to try to unseat current points leader Tom Wallisch.
