“Because of your support I was able to ski at the USASA Nationals in Copper, Colorado. I took first place in Half Pipe and 15th in Slopestyle in the Junior Men’s division.

Because of my first-place finish, I have been accepted to Project Gold Camp. The U.S. Ski Camp and Snowboard Association brings together the top junior athletes in the country for a progressive talent development camp in Mammoth Mountain in June. I’m really excited because it will elevate my half-pipe training to a new level. The USA Freeski coaches will be there so I’m also looking forward to that experience.”
