    On the first day of spring, a blizzard of snowfall greeted men’s and women’s skier slopestyle competitors Wednesday, March 20 on the third day of action at Sun Valley Resort’s Dollar Mountain.
    Sun Valley Resort is the third and final stop on the 2013 U.S. Revolution Tour for snowboarders and skiers. The five-day event started Monday, March 18 and runs through Friday, March 22.
    Winning the women’s skier slopestyle event in a field of eight with a 90.6 score was Taylor Lundquist, 19, of Park City, Utah. Lundquist most recently placed third in slopestyle March 10 in a Nor-Am Cup event at Northstar-Tahoe, Ca.
    Men’s skier slopestyle winner with a 92.8 score topping a field of 65 Wednesday was Tim Ryan, 17, Freeride Team member for the Waterville Valley Ski Academy Black and Blue Trail Smashers (WVBBTSD) in New Hampshire.
    Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF) Freestyle/Freeski team member River Kelly, 16, placed 56th and Hayes Gilman, 16, was 65th.
