TWIN BRIDGES, Calif. — Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort hosted a USASA South Tahoe Series slopestyle event for the second straight weekend on Sunday, Jan. 10. Skiers and snowboarders took to the park on Bashful, showing off their skills on a course covered with fresh snow.

Competitors from Sierra-at-Tahoe, Kirkwood Mountain Resort, Heavenly Mountain Resort and Northstar California attended the event at the South Shore resort. Athletes from the North Shore Series joined them — the course featured rails, boxes and two 40-foot jumps along with Olympic gold medalist Jamie Anderson handing out awards.

Michael Carter of El Dorado Hills, California, took home the top prize in skiing by winning the skier open class men’s division. Skier Colton Morris of Truckee won the event’s Best Trick Award while taking first in the men’s 16-18 division.

Three South Lake Tahoe athletes delivered gold medals in skiing Sunday. Piper Arnold won the girls’ 9 and under division for her third gold of the series, Jamie Parisi took first in the men’s 14-15 division and Zoe Loughlin finished atop the girls’ 10-12 division.

In snowboarding, South Shore riders brought home four gold medals — including a sweep of the men’s and women’s 16-17 division courtesy of Zephyr Cove’s Zachary Larson and South Lake Tahoe’s Marisa Hasslinger. Sisters Makayla Kellogg (girls’ 12-13) and Cara Kellogg (girls’ 10-11) also produced first-place finishes.

USASA South Tahoe Series’ next event is Slalom/Giant Slalom at Heavenly, scheduled for Friday, Jan. 22. For more information on the series and a schedule, visit
