In the Open Men’s’ class on Saturday, the top 7 competitors after a 2 run qualifier advanced to a two run final where Alex Dorszynski rose above the other competitors to win the division and the coveted one-year sponsorship from 4FRNT Skis. Alex, along with Scott Pollman, Bryce Hanrahan, Eric Lee O’Brien, Justin Dye, Barret Young and Evan Haines advanced to Sunday’s Pro class competition as result of making finals.
Finals day on Sunday, Parker White’s consistently performed run composed of a fluid upper cliff section down into a 360 off a 30’cliff, a cork 7 on the hip and a P-White signature front flip out of the “rut-jump” at the bottom put him on top of the podium. Due to heating temps and isothermal conditions, the finals was reduced to a 1 run format where the latter 4 athletes found themselves fighting a crash as conditions set up and legs became tired. 4FRNT Team Rider, Thayne Rich washed out on his double-flip attempt on the last hit, which put him in second place. Kyle Johnston rounded out the Pro class podium with monster cliff airs and a bail attempt at a cliff air 720. Sean Fields found his swift line choice a bit too fast as he clipped a rock in the upper section for 4th and Utah based shred, Luke Perin rounded things out with a monster backflip after a miss-hap following a half cab attempt on the upper cliffs to take home 5th.
