On Sunday, the competition got fierce again during the slopestyle finals. Andreas Hatveit, a 23-year-old from Norway, earned a first-place score of 93.00 with a run that included a double cork 1080 and a switch right 1080. Tom Wallisch of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, landed second-place during his second run, with a pretzel on the rail, a rodeo 900, and a misty 5 off the rail to earn a score of 92.38. Following in third was Sammy Carlson of Tigard, Oregon, with a score of 91.13 for his 270 onto the rail and a switch misty 900 poke. “Getting here [to the Winter Dew Tour] and watching the level of riding, I was just aiming to get third,” said Hatveit. “But I finally got my run together, and it was definitely the best run I’ve ever had in my life so I couldn’t be happier.” (click to the next slide)
