Woodward Park City Hosts Final Rev Tour Stop
The final stop of the 16th Annual Rev Tour NorAm is underway this week at the new state-of-the-art Woodward Park City, Utah. Freeski and snowboard slopestyle and big air competition will take place starting Monday, March 2 through Friday, March 6.
Just down the road from U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Center of Excellence, Woodward’s new facilities have already received overwhelming praise from U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes. Alongside an all-female mini-camp focused on progression from March 6-7, the Rev Tour is just the beginning of what should be a long and fruitful relationship for both organizations.
U.S. Freeski Rookie Team member Deven Fagan shared his thoughts about competing at the new facilities.
“I’m so hyped to compete at the brand new Woodward Park City,” said Deven enthusiastically. “I’m looking forward to skiing and competing with some of my friends who I haven’t been able to ski with this year due to a very busy competition and travel schedule. Hopefully, I can get another podium and continue to gather some very crucial competition experience at a great venue.”
Joining Deven from the U.S. Freeski Rookie team is Hunter Henderson, Grace Henderson, Rell Harwood, Marin Hamill, Cody LaPlante, as well as pro team members Kiernan Fagan and Hunter Hess.
U.S. Snowboard Rookie Team member Jade Thurgood also shared her excitement for this week’s competition.
“I’m really stoked to be competing at the new Woodward Park City, especially after I dislocated my shoulder a couple of weeks ago,” she said. “I’ve ridden there before and it’s a really cool set up. I can’t wait to see what they’re going to be offering us from a course perspective for the competition. I bet it is going to be really sweet.”
Joining Jade this week from the U.S. Snowboard team are teammates Courtney Rummel and Ty Schnorrbusch. For the men, pro team members Kyle Mack, Lyon Farrell, Sean FitzSimons, Luke Winkelmann as well as rookie team members Jake Canter and Dusty Henricksen are set to compete.
Dusty is coming off a spectacular performance at the 2020 Burton U.S. Open where he earned second-place and landed the first-ever backside quad cork 1800 in elite-level slopestyle competition. Dusty will be looking to close out his season with what would be the fifth podium of his break out winter.
