The first annual Winter Dew Tour wrapped up this weekend at Northstar-At-Tahoe. Top athletes from the first two stops battled it out for the overall Dew Cup, while fans enjoyed huge terrain, warm days and Lake Tahoe itself.
Aussie Torah Bright proved victorious at the Superpipe Final, despite gray skies and rainy conditions. In her second attempt, Bright earned a whopping 95.5 by putting together an innovative run, consisting of a flawless backside 3 to switch backside 7.
“Torah’s switch backside spins were so technical; she was doing tricks you never see in the pipe,” said second-place winner Kelly Clark. “She clearly threw down the best run of the day.”
Vermonter Hannah Teter earned third-place with a beautiful first run.
In the end, Clark was handed the Dew Cup for her overall point-total of 280, which she earned with second-first-second place-finishings at each respective Winter Dew Tour stop (silver at Breckenridge, gold at Mount Snow, silver at Tahoe). She now leaves for Japan representing the U.S. at the Asian Superpipe contest which will take place this coming weekend.
