ASPEN, CO (Jan­. 29, 2017) – The slopestyle ladies wrapped up X Games Aspen 2017 on Sunday; Maggie Voisin (Whitefish, MT) finished fifth and Devin Logan (West Dover, VT) was seventh. 

Voisin, who also was seventh in big air on Saturday night, had a solid showing in Slopestyle on Sunday. Her run included a leftside 900 tailgrab. It was Voisin’s fourth X Games appearance – she earned slopestyle silver at her first appearance in 2014.

The only female triple threat (halfpipe, slopestyle, big air) at X Games in 2017, Logan couldn’t put down a clean run in Slopestyle on Sunday. Her run did feature a very cool rodeo 720 safety off the quarterpipe on the second jump. Logan owns a silver medal from slopestyle in 2012.

Kelly Sildaru of Estonia won gold, making it two in a row after winning at her rookie appearance in 2016. Tess LeDeaux of France earned silver and Johanne Killi of Norway took the bronze.

Up next for the U.S. Freeskiing athletes is the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain Jan. 30-Feb. 4, which will feature both halfpipe and slopestyle events.
