SNOWBIRD, Utah – Cold, wind and snow didn’t prevent several hundred screaming fans from gathering at the base of Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort’s North Baldy for the final stop of the Subaru Freeride Series. Forty-six skiers advanced to the finals round out of 62 athletes from the first day of competition on Silver Fox, and at day’s end, Sasha Dingle of Bozeman, and Ian Borgeson of Dillon, Colo., were crowned event champions.

Dingle started her run through a section of the mountain called Fields of Glory, then continued through the Blonde Rocks with a creative line setting herself up for the Flying Squirrel, where she threw a 15-foot exit air.

“The level of athleticism we have witnessed the past three days at Snowbird has been truly incredible,” said Subaru Freeride Series Head Judge Eric Schmitz. “The finals’ conditions were particularly challenging, but the skiers made it look easy with an impressive amount of skill.”



Dingle’s skiing – which the judges described as confident and smooth – earned her a score of 84.33 on the finals day. She’d earned a 91.00 on day one by becoming the second woman in Snowbird competition history to hit the large smoke stack double. Dingle’s total score came in at 175.33.
