The latest installment of X Games Real Ski was aired on World of X Games on ABC over the weekend, with the medalists being revealed to the public.
In the running this year were six of the top street skiers on the planet, including Olympic slopestyle bronze medalist and X Games Aspen slopestyle and big air silver medalist, Alex Beaulieu-Marchand; one of the most influential and decorated freeskiers in history, Henrik Harlaut; new wave underground wild child, Jake Mageau; the Swedish technical tactician, Kim Boberg; one of the cleanest and most unique urban skiers of the modern era, Peyben Hagglund; and last year’s champion, the incomparable Phil Casabon, all of whom put forth mind-boggling entries that were more than worthy of being on the podium.
In the end though, only three could walk away with medals, and the judging panel, which consisted of legendary urban skiers Tom Wallisch, LJ Strenio and Mike Hornbeck, Level 1 Productions’ Josh Berman, and Forecast’s very own Jeff Schmuck, have spoken. So without further ado, here’s a look at who brought home the hardware.
Gold Medal - Phil Casabon
Silver Medal - Peyben Hagglund
Bronze Medal - Alex Beaulieu-Marchand
Now that the medals have been awarded, it’s time for the fans to have their say, so be sure to give your preferred athlete a vote at xgames.com/realski for the Fan Favorite Award, which will be announced on Monday. Congratulations to all of the competitors on another amazing year of X Games Real Ski.
