The Big Mountain Telemark Open held at Grand Targhee Resort this past weekend was the first time in over 10 years that a telemark competition tour had been available. The Junior Men’s category was swept by 12-year-old Bennett Drummond who traveled from California with his family for the competition. His aggressive line selection and continuous telemark turns through challenging terrain earned him top place in his category and a top 20 placement among the entire men’s field. Kami Abi-Nader chose terrain appropriate to her ability and impressed the judges with her fluidity and control to take first place in the Junior Women’s competition. Lucy Sackbauer placed first among the women thanks to her line selection, fluidity and technical skiing. First place finisher Paul Kimbrough skied a technical, aggressive line with air, speed and control to take the top position. The Big Mountain Telemark Tour moves next to Alpine Meadows, while Grand Targhee Resort prepares to host the best 12 to 17 year old skiers during Junior Freesking Tour on March 17th.
