Tom Wallisch capped a beautiful weekend of action with a clean and stylish run to win Men's Ski Slopestyle Finals, scoring a 92.75 in front of a packed crowd of Dew Tour fans.
Wallisch put down a run of 270 on pretzel 270 off into a blind 360 switch-up, switch right 900 high mute, left double cork 1080 high mute, blind 450 wall ride, and finished with back-to-back switch left to switch right double cork 1080 japans for a record-tying third Dew Tour win.
One of the oldest competitors in ski slope at 24, Wallisch took first over Nick Goepper, who placed second with 88.00, and Alexis Godbout, who rounded out the podium in third with 87.00, to close out the Nike Open at Breckenridge. He'll now heads to the Dew Tour Pantech Invitational in Killington, Vermont with a head of steam in search of his first Dew Cup title.
“It always feels good to land a run. I like landing the first run to take some pressure off, but that pressure gets your heart going. The adrenaline was good. There was a lot of pressure, but I was able to come through and I’m happy,” said Wallisch following the win, “I’ve had a couple Dew Tour wins in my career. Going for the Dew Cup is awesome and a big goal of mine.”
