Vermonter and lifelong Mad River Glen skier Lars Chickering-Ayers took first place at the podium this past weekend at the Freeskiing World Championships at Snowbird, UT.
His win comes just a couple of weeks after another Vermonter and Mad River Glen-raised skier, Dylan Crossman, also a close friend of Chickering-Ayers, took first place at the podium at the North American Freeskiing Championships at Kirkwood, CA.
Both events are part of the Freeskiing World Tour, which began in La Parva, Chile, in September 2009; 22-year-old Chickering-Ayers has been competing out West for the last two winters and was joined this season by his younger brother Silas, who graduated early from high school this past December.
