SCOTT athletes swept all three top podium spots at the 2009 U.S. Extreme Freeskiing Championships this past weekend in Crested Butte, CO. Sun Valley Local North Parker took home the victory in the Junior division, while Michelle Manning won the women’s division and Clif Bennett was the top man. It was Clif’s first big win of the year and gives him some nice momentum going into the next stop on the freeskiing tour. Michelle went big in her first run of the superfinal and it paid off quite nicely while fellow SCOTT athlete Crystal Wright skied strong all weekend to take home third. North Parker, fresh off his third place finish at Stevens Pass, skiied strong all week long to take the win in the junior division. Congrats to all the athletes who participated. See you in Snowbird for the next stop.
