Vancouver Island’s freestyle snowboarders, better known as Mt. Washington’s VI Riders, and VI coach Jason Hogan took their expertise and skills to Mt. Seymour’s BCSA Provincial Slopestyle Competition last weekend.

The judges announced they were looking for tricks with balanced landings on the sweet spot and that is exactly what the VI athletes were ready to deliver.

Sydney Moore from the Comox Valley took her place on the podium in both competitions, placing third on day one and moving into second place on day two, impressing the judges with her style throughout the entire slopestyle event. Female teammates Deanna Dougan and Sydney Bey followed on Moore’s heels with fourth and fifth place finishes, respectively.

VI male athletes representing the club were Morgan Rogers placing fifth and Jerico Beldam placing ninth in a competitive field of strong contenders.
