Newry, Maine (March 30, 2013)—Lawrenceburg, Indiana, native Nick Goepper took home the Dumont Cup in 2011 as an amateur and today takes home the 2013 Dumont Cup as one of the most recognized professional freeskiers in the world.
Goepper’s winning slopestyle run earned him 95 points while second place finisher, Gus Kenworthy (Telluride, Colorado), earned 92.7 points, and third place finisher Joss Christensen (Park City, Utah) earned 91.7 points.
Goepper takes home $10,000 in cash, Kenworthy $5,000, and Christensen $2,000. The three winners are also invited to the Team O’Neil Rally School in New Hampshire for off-road driving instruction with Dumont Cup founder Simon Dumont.
Goepper, Kenworthy, and Christensen were part of a group of a dozen professional skiers and nearly 80 amateur skiers who came to the slopes of Sunday River Resort to compete in the two-day fifth annual Dumont Cup—the largest freeskiing event on the East Coast and the only platinum-level slopestyle event recognized by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP).
