Emilia Wint tops women’s slopestyle semifinal at Dew Tour
Amid heavy snowfall this morning, 10 women dropped into the slopestyle course here at Breckenridge looking to secure one of six spots available in tomorrow’s final. The women had two chances to stomp a run—best run counts.
Many competitors struggled with speed issues, and we were witness to a handful of cringe-inducing spills. On the other hand, others managed to clear the jumps just fine, and to lay down an assortment of technical tricks at that.
Colorado’s Emilia Wint bagged the highest score of the day on her first run. Wint opened her run with a 270 onto the flat-down rail up top, and linked with a trip across the wall ride on the second feature-station and a backflip Japan on the first jump (classic!). Wint also linked a 540 mute into a switch rodeo 5 on the lower set of jumps. Wint was ecstatic to score well while competing at her home resort.
Rounding out the top three were Anna Segal and Kaya Turski, respectively. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for more snow. Be sure to wax those skis tonight, ladies. We’re looking forward to what’s sure to be an exciting final tomorrow morning.
Checking in with the top 3 women qualifiers, post Dew Tour slopestyle semifinal. In order of appearance: Kaya Turski, Anna Segal and Emilia Wint.
