Brown, Hall win Winter Dew Tour events at Breckenridge
Aspen, CO Colorado
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. ” Local freeskier Bobby Brown won the slopestyle finals, and veteran freeskier Tanner Hall took the superpipe finals Saturday in the first stop on the inaugural Winter Dew Tour.
The 17-year-old Brown, from Breckenridge, drew gasps from the crowd with his progressive tricks on the slopestyle course, which included a switch misty 1,080 to a switch double rodeo 900 off the jumps. He finished with a rodeo 450 off the rail.
“The day before in training I was working on that switch double rodeo and I was freaking out while I was upside down, and somehow I came onto my feet, so I was just super stoked about that,” said Brown, who finished with a score of 90.50
New Zealand’s Josiah Wells (89.50) was second, followed by Sweden’s Henrik Harlaut (85.67).
In the freeski superpipe event, Hall landed a 1,080 at the bottom of the superpipe for the first time in his competitive career. His run also included back-to-back 900s and an alley oop flatspin to score 90.75 points.
“It feels good to come in and lay down a really solid run and throw a trick I’ve never thrown in a comp,” said Hall, from Kalispell, Mont. “It means a lot to come out and win and just have good momentum going into the next one. I know what I gotta work on to better my runs and I’m just stoked for Mount Snow.”
Canadian Justin Dorey was second at 85.50, and 16-year-old Duncan Adams of Breckenridge was third at 81.00.
The four-day competition is the first of three stops of the Winter Dew Tour that features men’s and women’s freeskiing and snowboarding disciplines. Sunday’s action features the men’s and women’s snowboard superpipe finals.

The camp not only let the players shake the rust off, but it opened a window into the soul of Michael Goerne. A Minnesota native, Goerne moved to Carbondale soon after graduating from Marist College in New York and is largely credited for the massive growth of lacrosse in the valley.
