(Aspen, Colo.) – Local-raised Olympian Nick Goepper did not make the podium at the Winter X Games over the weekend.
Goepper, a native of Hidden Valley, was among 10 skiers in the finals of the men’s ski slopestyle competition in Aspen, Colorado on Sunday. He placed eighth in the event, with his best run scoring a 66.33.
Alex Hall, of Utah, won the gold with a near-flawless third run scored at 95.66. Silver went to Canada’s Alex Beaulieu-Marchand and bronze belonged to Norwegian Ferdinand Dahl.
On Instagram, Goepper thanked his fiancée and family for being there to watch him compete. He also tipped his hat to the medalists.
Even though today didn’t go my way I’m grateful to be back at @xgames. It’s been a rollercoaster ride since last February. I had all my important people out here today supporting and that meant more than anything. @lizzybraun and fam. This gives me a lot of motivation for the rest of the year and the next few years. Thank you everyone for the amazing support and love🙏🏻. Huge congrats to @alexhallskiing @abmskier and @ferdinandahl. 📷: @ztc770 . @redbull @volklskis @markerproducts @dalbellosports @pocsports @perfectnorth @kulkea @shred_msnow @bfgoodrichtires @yakimaracks @weathertech
