ASPEN, Colo. – January 27, 2018 – Monster Energy would like to give a huge congrats to Henrik Harlaut for earning his fifth X Games gold medal in Ski Big Air. Monster Energy teammates James Woods took bronze in Ski Big Air, and Maggie Voisin claimed her first X Games gold in Women’s Slopestyle.
Voisin made history by becoming the first American female skier to win an X Games gold medal in Ski Slopestyle. The 19-year-old from Montana has been dreaming of this day throughout her entire ski career, and made it happen with her first run.
Under bright and sunny skies, Voisin unleashed a massive first run that included; back to front 270 combo on the first rail, switch 270 on the flat down, a back swap on the rainbow rail, right 900 tail grab, switch left 900 mute grab, and a left rodeo 900
She stomped this technical run with tons of style and was awarded 92.33 for her efforts. This score held up through all three rounds. Because of this, she was able to take her first-ever victory lap on the last run. When she was handed her shiny new gold medal, Voisin said, “I can hardly breathe to be honest, but I've been dreaming of this day for a really long time."
Voisin already has two X Games medals, one silver in Slopestyle and a bronze in Big Air.
“I am so grateful to have put the first one down, this feels so good! I’ve never had a victory lap; I am just so excited to win my first X Games gold!” said Voisin.
