Friday’s competition marked the beginning of the competition season. Voisin, who earned a spot on the 2014 Olympic team, is back as one of the stars of the sport. She recently caught up with Kade Krichko with the Dew Tour to talk about her preparation for the season as well as her comeback from injuries in recent years.
Voisin has a busy winter ahead of her. She was invited to compete in the X Games at the end of January. Last year she placed fourth in the slopestyle competition and in 2014 she earned a silver medal.
