The Dumont Cup – Simon Dumont’s open invitation slopestyle competition wrapped up last weekend in Sunday River, ME.  The event allows pro and amateur skiers to go head to head in a jam style format with skiers then progressing to semi-finals and finals, and has been a coming out party for young rippers on the cusp of turning pro.  This year Nick Goepper took the title followed by Gus Kenworthy and Jacob Wester.

Events like this are great for local talent especially here on the East, where it sometimes can be hard to get noticed.  Naturally our local jib crew from MMSC’s Freestyle Team led by head coach Ben Grunow also cruised over to the event.  Below are a compilation of pictures that Ben shot during the comp, needless to say the kids threw down.  Nice work boys!
