Voisin Earns Bronze Medal in Slopestyle at Aspen Winter X Games

Vince Bagby SWX
The 2019 Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado kicked off competition on Thursday and on Monday morning Whitefish native Maggie Voisin was in action for her marquee event of slopestyle skiing. Voisin now garners major attention and expectiatons at this annual event and rightfully so following her X Games gold medal in slopestyle last year, which made her the first American woman to ever win the competition. Friday didn’t go quite that well but Voisin did grab yet another X Games medal. In her second run (see video above), Voisin scored 87.66 points thanks to landing a forward double cork 1260 on her final jump, the first time she has stuck that trick during a competition. That score was enough to earn third place and a bronze medal on the day, it was also the best finish by an American competitor in the event. Kelly Sildaru of Estonia took home the gold medal on Friday with a score of 99, the highest score ever posted in women’s slopestyle skiing at the X Games. The bronze finish now marks four total X Games medals for Voisin as the 20-year old freestyle skiier has a gold, silver and bronze in slopestyle at Aspen, plus a big air bronze from Norway in 2017.
