Heavenly Freeride Team Members @ Nike Open for Dew Tour

We would like to congratulate Heavenly Freeride Team members Kyle Smaine and Joanna “PNut” Dzierzawski for placing in the Nike Open for the Winter Dew Tour 2011 in Breckenridge! Both members yielded impressive results this past week in their respective events.

PNut placed 4th in the Woman’s Snowboard Slopestyle qualifying round stacked with insane snowboard talent! This was her first foray into competition since an injury kept her out of riding for months last season. Way to bring it back, Joanna!

In the super heavy Men’s Ski Halfpipe Open qualifier, Kyle Smaine smoked the competition, placing 6th in the qualifying round. This is just the first stop in an extensive competition schedule Kyle has lined up for the season. Keep up the good work, Smaniac!

Two Heavenly model team members, Nick Poohachoff and Jason Arens, were also invited to compete in a couple of the most challenging Dew Tour events, Men’s Open Snowboard Slopestyle and Men’s Open Ski Slopestyle, respectively. Nice work, Gentlemen!

You’ll be able to scope the skills of these skiers/riders and more later in the season at Heavenly’s own Stateline Showdown Slopestyle Competition. In the meantime, here’s a little taste from Ante Up terrain park.

Thanks for holding it down for the Heave, High Rollers!

Powder to the People,

Megan Hammitt
