Aspen/Snowmass Freeskiing Open Results – Superpipe Finals

The women and men’s ski superpipe finals went down today under sunny skies and prime conditions.  Local Team Aspen/Snowmass athlete Alex Ferreira took first in the superpipe finals today adding to the excitement of his teammate Matt Walker’s top finish in the slopestyle finals Friday. Cassie Sharpe of Whistler, BC took first place for the women’s superpipe.

Ferreira was a third place finisher in the 2014 X Games Aspen and came second last year in the Aspen/Snowmass Freeskiing Open to Aaron Blunck, 2014 Team USA member. Ferreira’s hard work and continuous dedication to the sport showed today. In fourth after his first run, Ferreira stepped up in his second run to take home the win on his home pipe.

“It was a really difficult contest and I was happy to be a part of it,” said Ferriera of the 10th Aspen/Snowmass Freeskiing Open. “The level of riding out there today was insane.”

The girls were feeling the vibe today too. After her second place finish, Jamie Crane-Mauzy remarked, “I love the pipe, it gives great boost. The judges were really rewarding style and the whole comp had a great vibe.”
