Tori Yater-Wallace, 16, soars to first place at the Winter Dew Tour's Pantech Invitational at Killington
And Yater-Wallace -- a 16 year-old skier who's been beating up on the big kids for the last two years after coming up through the Dew Tour's amateur Free Flow series -- similarly ruled the men's ski superpipe competition on Saturday night, with a victory lap run featuring his first-ever switch 900 for good measure. He's now in second place in the overall ranking behind French skier Kevin Rolland as the tour heads into its final stop next month, February 9-12 at Snowbasin Resort in Ogden, Utah.
