STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — After a cold and windy competition Saturday at the USASA Rocky Mountain Series competition in Breckenridge, three Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club snowboarders walked away with golds after Sunday’s slopestyle event, coach Maddy Schaffrick wrote in an email to the Steamboat Pilot & Today.

Winter Sports Club freeskiers had their best day Sunday, when two won their respective age groups in the halfpipe competition. On Saturday in slopestyle, Cael McCarthy attempted a double cork 1080 on his second run, coach Andy Michnay wrote in an email. McCarthy lost a ski on the landing, but his first run score was enough to land him on the podium.

Also last weekend, Winter Sports Club athlete Jesse Hamric earned two golds in rail jam and slopestyle competitions in Aspen, according to Schaffrick.
