Local Taylor Seaton 6th at Dew Tour
BRECKENRIDGE – Taylor Seaton of Avon credited his ski tuner, Dano Bruno, with his impressive 6th place performance in the Dew Tour ski halfpipe competition on Saturday.
The Dew Tour ski halfpipe is one of the most competitive ski halfpipe competitions on the planet, attracting top competitors from around the globe. Saturday’s final saw heavy snowfall during the competition, preventing some athletes from attaining proper amplitude out of the halfpipe. Amplitude is a key element in the way the judges score the event.
“I think my height out of the pipe is what got my scores into the 80s, and I really owe that to Dano,” Seaton said after the event. “I was so happy to have him there with me. I don’t know what he did to those skis, he was like a magician out there.”
