Baker dominates Far West weekend

Courtesy of Tom Idzorek Taryn Baker of Heavenly cleaned up at the at the Far West Freestyle mogul events at Squaw Valley last weekend, grabbing three first-place finishes.

Heavenly Foundation skier Taryn Baker continues to dominate the Far West mogul scene.

Baker threw big 360s to go with her unreal turns as she took first in all three Far West Freestyle mogul events on Squaw Valley’s Red Dog last weekend. Baker wasn’t the only Heavenly Foundation rider turning in top results, according to coach Jere Crawford.

Teammate Shanti Payne showed off great inverted jumps and machine-like turns as he garnered second in duals.

On the women’s front, Gabriella Fisher did her first 360 in competition and snagged two J-4 wins. Mia Idzorek threw her huge spreads and powered her way to a J-4 second. Karli Anderson skied awesome in her first competition.

On the men’s front, Yamato Kashima battled a recurrent dislocated shoulder, but still managed to finish every event in the top six. Zach Shearer makes moguls and sick airs look easy and got a J-3 win. Dean Ambrosi 360ed his way to a J-3 bronze. Joshua Sullivan did his first 360 in a competiton-and also got a J-3 bronze. Matthew Sullivan ripped his way down moguls bigger than him. Range Chapman got a J-3 bronze in his first event ever.
