2022-23 U.S. World Cup Events
At only 21 years old, Mac Forehand beat out the veterans of the sport when he landed a perfect 2160 Cuban in the men's ski big air contest at the 2023 X Games.
Forehand, who won the X Games silver medal the day before in men's ski slopestyle, still had something left in his bag for the second-to-last competition of the X Games. With four attempts of the big air jump, Forehand never ventured out of the top three. In the strong field of 10 competitors, including teammates Alex Hall and Troy Podmilsak, Forehand had what it took to win.
David Wise won X Games gold to close out the 2023 X Games in Aspen, Colo. Wise, who has competed in over 14 X Games, is once again walking away from the event with another gold medal in his bag. Under the lights of Buttermilk Mountain, the men's SuperPipe was the last event of the busy X Games schedule. With tens of thousands of fans surrounding the 22-foot-tall halfpipe, U.S. Freeski Team athletes Wise, Birk Irving, Alex Ferreira and Aaron Blunk put on a show.
U.S. Freeski Team athlete Svea Irving went big in the SuperPipe on Saturday night and ended the evening on the podium for the first time in her professional career.
On Sunday, the Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team men’s speed took on the Cortina super-G track for the second day. The race was riveting and extremely difficult. There was a total of 21 did not finish racers. An unheard-of number for a speed event. This was due to a lot of trick turns on the terrain packed course.
“It helps to run at the end where you see some of the top guys go with those big trick turns and mistakes they were making,” commented Kyle Negomir on the tricky set.
Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Mikaela Shiffrin finished second in the second slalom in Spindleruv Mlyn, Czech Republic, just .06 seconds out of first place, and clinched a seventh slalom crystal globe. Paula Moltzan added another top-10 result, finishing in eighth place.
"It is unbelieveable to secure the slalom globe already this season," said Shiffrin. "I have been working hard to get my slalom to a high level again and this season has been very special."
Colby Stevenson was first and Mac Forehand second for the men's ski slopestyle contest on the second day of the X Games. Despite heavy snow that significantly slowed the skiers down throughout the four runs, Stevenson continued to raise the bar after every lap through the course.
Of the 10 athletes competing, three were from the U.S. Freeski Team: Colby Stevenson, Alex Hall and Mac Forehand. Forehand secured his second X Games medal of his career with a silver in today's contest and was left speechless.
