Sammy Carlson second in slopestyle at Freestyle Skiing championships

Feb. 4, 2011

It's been quite a week for Sammy Carlson.

After winning his first X-Games gold medal last weekend, the Hood River resident took second in slopestyle at the first World Freestyle Skiing championships in Park City, Utah Thursday.

"It went well today, I had a lot of fun," said Carlson in USSA release. "I wanted to come out here and put on a good show for everyone, as this is a new thing for FIS. They don't get to see too many slopestyle competitions."

The 22-year old Carlson and the rest of the US slopestyle team are hoping that the discipline is added to the 2014 Olympic schedule.

Look for more on this story next week in the Hood River News.
