Last weekend Whistler hosted the 15th annual showcase showdown a slopestyle event not to be missed. This year the course was set up at the base of Whistler Mountain with snow dumping on the course for most of the afternoon making it slow causing many jumpers to knuckle the landing hard
The event was won by Jesse Millen for the men while Pro Ride's own Jess Rich took home the podium for the women. Yay Jess, we are super proud of you. Jess has been killing it lately with a 1st place podim finish also at the Aspen/snowmass open this past February.
"I'm so stoked," said Rich, who stomped a backside 540 tail grab as part of her winning run. "We came in today (with it) super snowy and didn't know how it was going to go, but it worked out really good."
