Last week, 20 Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club athletes competed at an International Freeskiers Association big mountain regional competition in Winter Park. Ellie Reynolds stood atop the women’s 12-14 podium after skiing a “hard-charging line full of sweet airs and big moves,” according to SSWSC big mountain lead coach Matti Hill. Teammate Jesse Weaver joined Reynolds on the podium in third, and Skylar Davison finished fourth.

Reynolds has had such a great year that she was invited to the North American Championships, which feature the top 175 of 2,200 athletes competing in North America.

Darian Squires won the men’s 12-14 division with what Hill described as “a large double feature leading right into a 360 off of a cliff drop.” Thomas Agosta finished fourth, while Robbie Wodnick took fifth.

Cooper Malia rode to third in the 12-14 male snowboarding category. In the 15-18 male ski division, Sal Malone used a huge cliff drop to earn fourth. He was the only telemark skier at the event.
