After a busy and eventful winter season, our freeski and snowboard athletes are taking a much-deserved summer break (In all honesty, they’ve packed up their gear and are chasing fresh powder around the globe, enjoying their "off" season). As some of their biggest fans, we’re not quite done bragging about them and the awesome season they are wrapping upâ•Œhere are some highlights from one of our most recent events:
PARK CITY GRAND PRIX
The U.S. Snowboarding and Freeskiing Grand Prix showcases the world’s best slopestyle and halfpipe athletes and, this year, Team Paul Mitchell was on site, cheering on our very own Paul Mitchell athletes Devin Logan, Chas Guldemond, Alex Schlopy and Aaron Blunck. Over the course of three action-packed days we watched the most elite athletes throw down their best runs and compete for the Grand Prix titles.
Slopestyle snowboarding kicked off Friday and, after an impressive run, resident MITCH Man and Olympic athlete Chas Guldemond placed 2nd!
The good fortune continued later that day as Paul Mitchell athlete and Olympic Silver Medalist Devin Logan placed 2nd and brought home the U.S. National Champion title for slopestyle freeskiing.
Devin also competed in the Halfpipe Freeskiing event the following day and grabbed another overall U.S. championship title and placed4th in the pipe.
As we wrap up the winter season, we want to send our most sincere congrats to all of our talented athletes. You sport your style well, team! Cheers to a great season!
