After competing at different stops on the Freeskiing World Tour all winter long local pro-skier Crystal Wright took the tour’s title this past weekend in Kirkwood, Calif., with a first place win at the final stop.

Wright says this will be her last year of intense competition so she can focus more on her personal training business in Jackson Hole. Wright said she also wants to take more mountaineering trips throughout the world. A tour veteran who has competed in the Freeskiing World Tour six times, Wright took the tour’s title once before in 2009. Most athletes say competition is a true mind game and this year Wright once again concocted a winning formula.

“I said, ‘OK, I’m going to go for the whole tour; every stop no matter what,’” Wright said. “I’m going to try and win, that’s obviously the ideal goal, and if I do that’s great, and if I don’t that’s great. It was a much better goal than saying, ‘I have to go and win this again.’”

Wright’s mother was even able to witness her daughter’s first place win.

“My parents came last year and it was a rough competition because I bashed my face in pretty good,” Wright laughed. “So it was nice for [my mom] to be there and witness my success; it’s probably her first time being at a competition that actually went well.”

Wright flew back from La Grave, France to compete in the last stop of the Freeskiing World Tour and she is now en route back to La Grave for more skiing and glacier mountaineering. – Robyn Vincent
