Monster Energy’s Henrik Harlaut Wins Ski Slopestyle at the Dew Tour 2017
I’ve never done a trick like that in a contest, and I’ve only ever done it twice, so it feels really, really, good! I’m super, super stoked, I can’t believe it, thank you Henrik Harlaut
BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. December 17, 2017
Monster Energy would like to congratulate for Henrik Harlaut for an incredible win in Men’s Ski Slopestyle Finals at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado. All eyes were on Men’s and Women’s Slopestyle Finals and Monster Energy athletes were out in full force raising the bar on competitive slopestyle skiing.
The men’s field of 12 skiers were first to take the course under grey-bird skies and brisk temperatures. The field was stacked with the best slopestyle skiers in the world all working towards Dew Tour glory, while also hoping to earn points towards making their respective countries’ Olympic teams. It was a big day, and everyone pulled out all the stops on the massive seven-feature course.
Harlaut stood out and was by far the most consistent skier of the day putting up a first run score of 90, and then outdoing himself and the rest of the field with a massive second run score of 95.
His insane style, massive tricks, and super creative trick combos were fan-favorites, and highly regarded by the judges. His second run included a bevy of mind-blowing tricks on the rails, and ended with a gigantic switch double 1620 on the bottom money booter.
Harlaut was beaming after his run, and said, “I’m feeling so great!” When asked if he was under pressure to stomp the 1620, he said, “I don’t feel pressure, it’s more like motivation. I’ve never done a trick like that in a contest, and I’ve only ever done it twice, so it feels really, really, good! I’m super, super stoked, I can’t believe it, thank you!” he exclaimed.
Right after the men’s big show, the women’s field took to the course with the top eight skiers laying it on the line. The sun came out, and the course was super fast. Maggie Voisin, 19, of Whitefish, Montana, came out swinging in her third run and put down a massive run, which included three different 900s, including one switch 900. This was enough to boost her into 4th place, just outside of podium contention. Double threat Devin Logan who competes in both Halfpipe Slopestyle, and finished fourth in Halfpipe was also in finals and placed in 8th.
