QUOTES
Bradley Wilson
It feels really good. It was a really long season. I consider it a success to come here and win it on the last competition of the year. It’s a good way to go out for sure, especially here at Deer Valley; it just makes it that much better.

It was insane. I had to do a couple goggle switches. It was super wet. The course actually stayed pretty good. It was able to stay soft unlike the rest of the mountain. It was pretty good. I’m just happy to make it down.

Eliza Outtrim
It feels amazing. I don’t really know what I expected this week. There weren’t that many Team members here, so I was really hoping that me and the few teammates here could sweep the podium. It’s a little unexpected I suppose. It was a lot of duals skiing today. We had to duel from a round of 32, which is unusual because in World Cup we only duel from 16. I was just happy to make it to the finals and get Sophia.
