A former competitive freestyler, David Crichton, 17, made a huge splash in his first year on the scene. At the 2001 World Skiing Invitational in Whistler, the Ontario native won the slopestyle event and placed third in big air with a D-spin 900. "Everybody has noticed him," says fellow jibber Sarah Burke. "He's got amazing style." See for yourself in Second Generation, the upcoming ski movie by Level 1 Productions.
