The season is well under way and our riders that are competing in all these snowboard contests are doing rather well. The Dew Tour made its first stop in Breckenridge where Bev Vuileumier took 8th in the slopestlye and Kaitlyn Farrington took 6th in the halfpipe. At the Grand Prix in Mammoth Kaitlyn snagged 5th in the Progression Session, and at the Copper Progression Session Gabi Viteri took home 3rd.
Brennen Swanson is barking with the big dogs as he is throwing down double corks in his halfpipe runs and is pulling some attention from Snowboarder Magazine for his style:
On the other side of snowboarding Madeline Wieckne, an Olympic hopeful for Parallel Giant Slalom, is holding her own. She is in the top 5 for U.S. PGS women, and the top 50 PGS women in the world.
