Maggie Voisin is off to a shiny start this ski season.
The 17-year-old freestyle skier from Whitefish earned a silver medal on the second day of the Dew Tour at Breckenridge, Colorado.
A day after placing third in the slopestyle jumps competition, Voisin won the jib contest on Saturday with an impressive run that boosted her overall two-day score to 153.32. Her final tally secured her a second-place finish in the overall contest.
“So grateful to finish in 2nd place @dewtour,” she posted on Instagram afterward. “Its an honor to share the podium with these two talented ladies! … Also shoutout to all the girls who skied the last few days with the tough weather. You all make this sport so special and way too fun!”
Fourteen-year-old rising star Kelly Sildaru won the two-day contest with a final score of 159.33. Kaya Turski was third, 146.99.
The Flathead Valley was well represented at the Dew Tour event, which featured many of the best skiers and snowboarders in the world. Along with Voisin, Adam Delorme was the men’s team captain for Faction and Tanner Hall was the team captain of Armada in the ski team challenge.
The Dew Tour 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 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.
