“It’s my third competition here this year and we finally got some good weather. Been dealing with a lot of snow and a lot of wind in other events but today couldn’t be better. I landed a run, that’s the biggest thing, and I took the win,” Stevenson told FIS after his win.
Second place in this comp went to Stevenson’s U.S. Ski and Snowboard teammate, Mac Forehand.
Four years ago, in Italy, after a long recovery from injuries sustained in a serious car accident, Stevenson took first place in a World Cup competition. Stevenson currently leads the slopestyle and Freeski overall World Cup standings as the tour heads next to Switzerland.
