At Snowbowl, next season is here for freestylers

SVSEF bump skiers in Sunrise Bowl

The Sun Valley Ski Educa-tion Foundation (SVSEF) Free-style team traveled to Missoula, Mt. last weekend for the Cole-man Open spring mogul event.

Sponsored by Northern Di-vision Freestyle and the Missoula Ski Team, the April 9-10 competition for 17 girls and 22 boys honored Chad Cole-man. It was staged at Montana Snowbowl in the Snowbowl Freestyle Arena, Sunrise Bowl.

Freestyle program director Andy Ware of Sun Valley said, "This event is actually the first event of the 2011-12 season. The results count towards Junior Nationals and U.S. National Championships in 2012.

"It is a tremendous opportu-nity for our athletes to make a move on the national points list. Spring events come after we have been skiing all season. Our athletes are in great physi-cal condition and skiing at their best. This is a chance for them to put out their best effort and have it count towards next year's championships."

Taking full advantage of the opportunity, the boys placed four in the top 10 Saturday.

Trevor Norris led Sun Val-ley with a fourth place overall (2nd M2). Claire Siderman placed sixth overall and 2-F3.

Sunday's single mogul event was more of the same. Sun Val-ley again placed four in the top 10 and were led by Norris (4th overall, 2nd M2) followed by RJ Bracken (5th, 3-M2), Zac Siele (8th, 2-M3), Parker Page (10th, 2-M1), Wyatt Wilson (12th, 3-M3), Lucas Beste (13th, 1-M5) and Wilson Dunn (17th, 5-M4).

Alysha Herich topped the SV women (11th overall, 5th F3).

In the dual mogul event the Sun Valley finished in a solid block from fourth to ninth place—Norris, Bracken, Siele, Page, Wilson and Beste. Norris completed the weekend with third-place overall in the com-bined results. Siderman paced the women with a sixth (2-F3).
