The Gatorade Free Flow Tour finished its two-day stop on Sunday at Vail with a halfpipe and rail jam contest for skiers and snowboarders in the park on Golden Peak.
The rail jam went off early while the halfpipe athletes practiced, and for the junior Ski & Snowboard Club Vail competitors in the snowboard rail jam, 10 year-old Jack Coyne took second for the boys.
In the men’s and women’s snowboard halfpipe, SSCV’s Cory Steinke stomped his tricks to a third for the men and Zoe Kalapos ripped the track to a third for the women.
“Kalapos really pushed herself today,” said snowboard coach Tyler Anderson. “Stienke threw some good tricks and Jack Coyne is a little ripper. Coyne kills it on a skateboard and brings those skills to his snowboarding.”
In the junior rail jam for skiers, Felix Coudouy scored a bronze. Coudouy took another third for the day in the junior skier halfpipe with teammate Liam Bruno in fourth.
SSCV’s Jake Cummings threw his runs in the skier halfpipe to a bronze for the men with some big amplitude. Cummings’ teammates Bobby Sontag and Broby Leeds also broke into the top ten finishing sixth and ninth, respectively.
“With the sunny day, you couldn’t ask for more,” said freeski coach Dave Zweig. “We had two skiers podium today, Cummings in the pipe and Coudouy in the pipe and the rail jam. Cummings had a great day, Coudouy aced it out in the pipe, and they were both throwing solid tricks.”
