Winter Dew Tour 2012: Kaya Turski wins big!

Nick Goepper went and won the men’s slopestyle with Tom Wallisch gaining the overall title, but Kaya didn’t want to do it like that. She wanted to win the day’s event AND win the overall title. She did it and she did it well.
“It felt really awesome to hold on to the lead and win the Dew Cup,” said Turski. “All the girls are really skiing very well these days. The level is definitely being pushed. It’s really exciting when you’re up there dropping in. You know you have to bring your A-game.”

It was her third straight top spot this season after winning in Killington and Aspen (Winter X Games). Her winning run consisted of a switch 270 to back switch up on the flat-down box, back switch up on the up-down rail, back 450 off the cannon box. On the kickers it was a perfect switch 720 and switch 540 on the jumps.

Anna Segal held her own to grab second place after a run of back to back 720s on the kickers. Devin Logan completed the podium with a switch 540 and corked 720 tail grab.
