MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, CA (Feb. 5, 2017) – Maggie Voisin (Whitefish, MT) scored her first major win at the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain on Sunday, topping the slopestyle podium for the women in the first qualifying event for the 2018 Olympics.
Voisin, who started her season with a second-place podium finish at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, was thrilled to take her first major win. “Oh my gosh, I’m just so grateful that the weather was able to hold out for the ladies today and happy to put it down,” she said after the win. “Hopefully I can keep the momentum rolling throughout the season—I’m just super, super grateful.”
Voisin stood on the podium with Mathilde Germaud of Switzerland in second and Johanne Killi of Norway.
Unfortunately, the pattern of week-long challenging weather conditions continued on Sunday and high winds combined with driving snow caused the cancelation of the men’s slopestyle event.
Devin Logan (West Dover, VT) was fourth and Darian Stevens (Missoula, MT) was fifth.
Maggie Voisin won for the women. Her second run scored 80.25: left 270 on, frontside 270 gap on the pyramid, switch on to switch off, switch left 180, right 540 mute, switch left 540 high safety, corked left 900 tailgrab.
Maggie Voisin—First Place Oh my gosh, I’m just so grateful that the weather was able to hold out for the ladies today and happy to put it down. Hopefully I can keep the momentum rolling throughout the season—I’m just super, super grateful. I kept my run more mellow; I just figured with the tough conditions that (it would be best) to put a more simple run down but make sure that it was smooth and well-grabbed.
