 What a week!  Three feet of powder, sunshine and the best young freestylers from all over the East Coast in Killington for the B Championships.  Over the course of three days on three different venues, we put on six great competitions!   


Friday was a long, but exciting day with back-to-back Slopstyle competitions.  Athletes strung together a series of stylish and daring jumps, rails and boxes in the Timberline Park.  The morning featured the Young Guns (ages 7-10) and in the afternoon the Juniors Division (ages 11-16) took the stage.  On Saturday and Sunday, while one division careened down the Highline Mogul Venue, the other division soared through the air off of the Upper Highline Aerial Jumps.


The action packed days were followed by exciting social activities including Tubing, All–You-Can-Eat Sushi Yoshi, Game Night & Pizza and an Awards Banquet.   The Game Night was especially fun, as everyone’s competitive nature mixed with laughter.   Friends went head to head on the Obstacle Course Challenge, Bounce-n-Box, Pedestal Jousting, Hooley Ball and an assortment of tabletop games.


This competition was truly a championship, with an extremely high level of skiing and jumping.  Killington put forth an impressive team, with 12 qualifying for Juniors and 22 qualifying for Young Guns. We took home a multitude of age group awards and overall prizes.  With 22 athletes in the top ten, Killington was able to clinch the team title for the second year in a row!  Great job to all of our athletes and congratulations to East Coast Junior Combined Champion Jack Petrone and East Coast Young Guns Champion in Aerials, Moguls and Combined, Megan Ciaglo!!!


This event could not have happened without the overwhelming support and hard work from so many people.  Thank you to our wonderful parent volunteers, the Killington Resort, KSC Events Staff, KSC Coaches and to all of our great sponsors!
