Jib & Jam Slopestyle hits Squaw
In the skier division, Tahoe City skier Sean Field took home the top prize with a combination of impressive rail tricks, big airs and smooth landings.”I’m definitely stoked on getting first place today,” Field said after the day was over. “It was a fun day for sure. I dig the course, it was awesome – it was a lot longer than I expected which was fun, and there was a big old jump at the bottom that was fun. We had a good time today.”Truckee local Marc Hilly agreed:”It was sick. The course was really smooth . . . I think there were like 15 of us overall and they took the top five (for the finals), and then the top five get in to Spring Jam.”Hilly took third place in the skier division behind Field and second-place finisher Kevin Omarha. Rounding out the top five for the skiers were Bill Fleming, who tied Hilly for third, and Luke Every in fifth place.In the snowboarding discipline, Jeremy Cameron took the top podium position, with Dan Pitbladdo in second and Dave Brumm in third. Myles Lewis took fourth and Dan Krenicki took fifth.For the women, only a few competitors entered, and Kara Nukina took first in the snowboard division and Lindsay Nagle won the women’s ski competition.The top five finishers mentioned received invitations to Squaw Valley’s Spring Jam VII to be held April 8-10. Squaw’s annual Spring Jam features superpipe, slopestyle, boarder- and skier-cross competitions accompanied by prize give-aways, a pool party at High Camp and live music throughout.
