  • Saturday wrapped up an exhilarating season for slopestyle skiing, which saw its Olympic debut at the 2014 Sochi Games in February that resulted in a U.S. Freeskiing sweep with Joss Christensen (Park City, UT), Gus Kenworthy (Telluride, CO) and Goepper.

QUOTES
Noah Wallace
It still hasn't sunk in that I made the podium yet to be honest. But while it was happening, it was amazing. Just to be on the podium in a contest with that caliber of riding is unreal for me. Still so happy to have made it!
