Good Results at Titus for Freestyle Skiers

Two of the Northwood skiers participated in a freestyle ski competition some time ago. The race was a Rail Jam at Titus Mountain. This event is not the typical race event in which Northwood skiers participate. A freestyle competition displays the tricks one can do and how well one can be while skiing or snowboarding on a variety of features spread around the slope.

The two competitors were Clayton Fuller ’25 and Kenny Guchinskiy ’26. Clay finished second overall in the 15-20 year age group, and Kenny finished first overall in the 11-14 year age group. We are incredibly proud of these freestyle ski races for going out and performing against such tough competition.

“It was a stiff field, and there were a lot of great skiers there,” Ful;ler said, “but I was happy to secure a second-place finish and enjoyed every minute of the event.”

The Titus Mountain terrain is challenging to ski on, and for the boys to do as well as they did is an outstanding achievement.

After a successful event at Titus Mountain, Clayton looks to continue competing. He is setting his sights on the Slopestyle Jail Jam event at Gore Mountain, which is the deciding factor in his making nationals. He will compete at Copper Mountain in Colorado over spring break if he makes nationals. He will compete in three events: the rail jam, the half-pipe, and slopestyle.

We hope to see Clatyon at Nationals soon!
