February 13, 2011 – After dominating on the slopes all season, Bobby Brown concluded the Toyota Championship as the overall men’s freeski slopestyle Dew Cup champion. Brown narrowly missed the podium in today’s final with a fourth place finish, but earned enough points to push him to the top of the freeski slopestyle rankings and take home the coveted Cup. With his hometown cheering him on, Park City, Utah native Alex Schlopy won his first Winter Dew Tour final in men’s freeski slopestyle. “I’m super stoked about winning the Dew Cup,” said Brown. “It’s great to be out here in the sunny weather here in Snowbasin and to end up winning. I’m pumped.”
The men’s freeski slopestyle final concluded with local Utah athletes in the number one and two podium positions. Schlopy wowed the crowd with a technical run that included a front 3 swap, blind 3 swap, blind 2 out, blind 630 out of the canyon, lefside 900 to switch 1440 for a top score of 94.50. After winning the Last Chance Qualifier and placing first in the prelims, Utah’s Joss Christensen, finished in second with a score of 92.00.
“It’s crazy to have won. I’ve been looking at those Dew Tour trophies for a long time, and I finally got one so I’m stoked,” said Schlopy. “It’s a beautiful day out here, and we’re having fun. It’s Utah, my hometown state so it’s good.”
