Emilia took women’s slopestyle by storm with a Revolution Tour win in late 2011. Her fearless slopestyle tricks, big air and rails earned her invites to Dew Tour Finals and Euro X, all within weeks of her top finishes at the Killington Dew Tour stop, the Aspen/Snowmass Open and the Mammoth Mountain VISA U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix.
She continued her strong skiing throughout the summer. In December 2012, Wint was competing at Dew Tour Breckenridge and landed a jump wrong, suffering a season-ending knee injury. Wint is motivated to get back on top after extensive rehab at the Center of Excellence in Park City, Utah.
