U.S. Freeski Claims Top Spots on Podiums Following Swiss World Cup

The U.S. Freestyle team had a fantastic season, winning the Freeski Nations Cup and achieving a U.S. podium sweep. However, the slopestyle finals on Sunday had to be canceled due to high winds. Despite this setback, Jay Riccomini, a trans athlete from Park City, placed third on the women’s slopestyle podium based on Friday’s qualification results. Riccomini finished third overall in the women’s standings after podium finishes in Switzerland, Colorado, and the Swiss World Cup.

On the men’s side, Team USA dominated the slopestyle podium with Alex Ferreira claiming the top spot, followed by Alex Hall and Mac Forehand, both from Park City. U.S. Ski and Snowboard CEO Sophie Goldsmith praised Ferreira for a historic season, highlighting his overall title and unbeaten season in halfpipe. Hall also achieved success by winning a Crystal Globe for big air competition and finishing second in the men’s overall park and pipe World Cup standings.

The U.S. Freeski Team swept the overall men’s park and pipe standings earlier in the month as well as several podium finishes and standout performances throughout their remarkable season.
