Freeride World Tour: Final Results at Squaw Valley

It was a dramatic few days at Squaw Valley, but the big-mountain competition took place Tuesday on Silverado. The men's ski winner was Sweden's Henrik Windsted; the women's ski winner was Jackie Paaso, a Squaw local who got a wild card to compete at the event. Here are final results and videos of the winning lines.

After a canceled run on Sunday, the Freeride World Tour took place Monday with two runs on Squaw Valley's Silverado. Sweden's Henrik Windset, the 2008 Freeride World Tour Champion, won for the men's ski division by throwing a giant backflip off the start straight into a big 360, then hitting a 45-foot air, which he stuck. “The format ‘best of two runs’ was really great and very interesting," Henrik said after the event. "The riders where pushing the limits even further with two chances on the same face. Silverado is a great competition venue, not too dangerous, so we dare to go for it! I was really excited at the start and wanted to go as big as I could. I am really happy I stomped my backflip and 360 as well as the big cliff jump at the bottom.” France's Aurélian Ducroz, the 2009 overall winner, took second, and Sweden's Reine Barkered took third.

In the women's ski division, local girl Jackie Paaso, who qualified for the event through a wild-card nomination, stunned the crowds by landing the same 45-foot air many of the guys were hitting. “I just wanted to go bigger than the boys," Jackie said. "It felt good because I didn’t have a wild card until the last minute. I really wanted to prove myself.” Norway's Ane Enderud, the 2009 overall winner, took second, and Squaw's own Ingrid Backstrom took third. Check out complete results here.
