Bobby Brown won the Freeski Slopestyle Finals at the Toyota Challenge with a double cork 1260 in his run this morning at Mount Snow in Vermont, beating out Andreas Hatveit and Tom Wallisch for the top spot on today's podium.
The win pushed him up to second place in the overall Winter Dew Tour standings behind Hatveit, this year's Dew Cup winner.
Brown lives in Breckenridge and is sponsored by Breckenridge Ski Resort. Check out our On The Edge interview with him from earlier in the season here: Living the dream: Local freeskier Bobby Brown goes big
