Stop two of the Winter Dew Tour went down in Killington, Vermont, over the weekend, with Canada’s Kaya Turski (pictured above) and Switzerland’s Iouri Podladtchikov taking big wins in Freeski Slopestyle and Snowboard Superpipe, respectively.
The top qualifier, Turski was the last competitor to drop in during the event, and she used her final run -- which included a frontside switch up into a switch lip into a 180-on-Cab-360-out of the cannon box, a switch 540, a 540 and a large 720 -- to overtake Devin Logan for the win.
In men’s Freeski Slopestyle, Bobby Brown finished second in a hard-fought battle with Tom Wallisch. Brown’s first-run score held him in first for most of the event until Wallisch took his final run. Brown’s run included a double cork 1080 and a switch double cork 1260.
Vito and Podladtchikov Battle for Superpipe Crown
In Snowboard Superpipe, Iouri Podladtchikov and Red Bull teammate Louie Vito went toe-to-toe in their climb to the top, with Iouri edging Louie out in the end. Vito had posted the high score of 94.75 until I-Pod bested it in his second run, consisting of a Cab 720 Crippler, a double McTwist 1260 and frontside and Cab 1080s. Vito improved on his first run with a double Crippler, backside 540, frontside double cork 1080, Cab double cork 1080 and a frontside 1080, but it wasn’t enough to unseat Iouri.
Sebastien Toutant matched his second-place Snowboard Slopestyle finish at stop one of the tour last month in Breckenride, Colorado, which was enough to put him into the lead for overall tour standings. Seb’s jump line included a double cork Cab 900, frontside double cork 1080 and a backside double cork 1080.
All of the snow shredders will now make their way to Aspen for the Winter X Games, then it’s on to Ogden, Utah in early February to close the tour and crown the overall champs.
