ARE, SWEDEN – It was a busy weekend for the Telluride Ski and Snowboard Club (TSSC) from Telluride to Waterville, N.H. and Are, Sweden.

Telluride freestyler and current U.S. Team member Joe Discoe competed at two World Cup events in Are; singles moguls on Friday and duals on Saturday. It was Discoe’s first World Cup in a foreign country.

In singles on Friday he qualified for his first ever World Cup finals, finishing in the top 16 after his first run, and wound up 14th overall with a score of 23.58. He finished behind four Americans on the men’s side; Pat Deneen finished 2nd overall, while Jeremy Cota, Michael Morse and David DiGravio went 11th, 12th and 13th just in front of Discoe.

On Saturday, Discoe put down several solid runs to finish 8th overall, his highest result at the World Cup level. Only Deneen and Bryon Wilson, who won bronze in moguls at the Olympics earlier this winter, finished ahead of Discoe for the Americans.

Discoe earned the World Cup starts after two strong results in Steamboat two weekends ago at the final North American Cup (NorAm) event of the season. He earned 2nd overall in singles and third in duals. Discoe is also expected to compete in singles at the World Cup in Sierra Nevada, Spain on Thursday.

Back stateside, some of Telluride’s Rocky Mountain Freestyle skiers competed at the Junior Olympics at Waterville Valley in New Hampshire. Keaton McCargo and Kealey Zaumseil skied on the women’s side, placing 12th and 36th out of 65, respectively, earning scores of 18.52 and 13.54. Ryan Parkinson and Nicki Jones represented Telluride Freestyle for the men. Parkinson finished 28th overall out of 67 men with a score of 19.01, while Jones finished 41st, with a 17.81. Bridger Johnson also qualified for JOs, but was unable to compete in singles last Friday, and planned to compete in duals, which were canceled due to poor weather.

In Telluride, the Rocky Mountain Devo Championships were held, Friday-Sunday, for skiers still working up to the higher Rocky Mountain level. The events featured skiers from across the state. The slopestyle competition took place on Friday, for both guys and girls, age groups J3-J6 (F denotes females, M for males), with one M2, Brendan Kelley from Telluride, in the competition. Here are the Telluride skiers’ results within their respective age groups. There were six girls in total from Telluride and fourteen guys.
