Boudreau and second-place pro finisher Mark Nowakiwsky from Breckinridge each earned a spot in the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP) Platinum Certified Dumont Cup freeski event, courtesy of Red Bull. Rounding out the pro men’s podium was native Vermonter and Carinthia Pro Team skier Ben Smith.
It was midwinter conditions at Mount Snow with high temperatures only reaching the mid-20s which helped to keep the slopestyle course in good shape throughout the day and allowed competitors to go big without having to worry about losing speed due to soft, springlike snow which can sometimes be the case in mid-March.
The Carinthia Open is an AFP Bronze Certified Event and is open to male and female skiers at the professional and amateur levels. Event sponsors include Skull Candy, Bern, Smith Optics, Neff, and Nordica.
