MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, CA (Mar. 6) – Stormy weather cut Pop-Tarts U.S. Revolution Tour ski action short last week, but not before the Tour crowned three new ski champions at Mammoth Mountain Resort. In the women’s skicross event, Mazie Hayden (Pittsfield, VT) topped the field, and Tyler Wallasch (Mammoth Lakes, CA) took top honors for the men. Kathryn Alexander (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) won women’s slopestyle skiing, but then the winds picked up and forced officials to cancel men’s slopestyle as well as both men’s and women’s halfpipe. Next, the competition heads to Sun Valley Mar. 3-7 for the last stop on the Rev Tour.

QUOTES
Tyler Wallasch

It was a beautiful day and really fun to just go and bump elbows. In the semifinal I had a little tangle in the start, but I got lucky and didn’t go down. In the final I hit the hole and had it a little easier.

Mazie Hayden
I’m really happy. I touched down on one of the corners but got up in time to get the win.

Kathryn Alexander
I was just happy to be out skiing against a group of strong girls today. The weather wasn’t the best, but I’m proud of everybody for giving it their all.
