ASPEN, CO (Jan­. 28, 2017) – McRae Williams (Park City, UT) had an excellent showing at X Games on Saturday, earning a silver medal in slopestyle with stylish rail riding and a stomped, technical jump line.

Williams, who added another silver medal to the gold and silver he has from previous years, laid down a spectacular run that was only just bested by gold medalist Oystein Braaten of Norway. Williams’ rails were technical and he capped the run with a switch leftside triple 1440. Alex Beaulie-Marchand of Canada took the bronze.

Up next for the U.S. Freeskiing skiers at X Games is women’s slopestyle on Sunday morning.
