ASPEN, CO (Jan. 29, 2016) – Maggie Voisin (Whitefish, MT) finished just off the podium in fourth in the X Games slopestyle Friday. It was a highly competitive field and an excellent showing for 17-year-old Voisin. Kelly Sildaru of Estonia won gold, while Tiril Sjastad Christiansen earned silver and Johanne Killi of Norway bronze.

It was Voisin’s second X Games appearance - she earned the silver medal in slopestyle in 2014, which made her the youngest skier ever to earn an X Games medal. Fourth was a sweet finish for Voisin, who has worked hard to return to competition form after she suffered back-to-back injuries in 2014.

“It’s my first event back in over a year, so I’m happy with how I skied,” she said. “Going into this event I hadn’t really done a lot of my tricks. Within a couple of days I relearned everything and I have to be super happy.”

Other Americans in the field: Devin Logan (West Dover, VT) was seventh and Keri Herman (Breckenridge, CO) eighth.

Skiing at the X Games continues Friday night with women’s SuperPipe. Watch for Logan, Maddie Bowman (South Lake Tahoe, CA), Annalisa Drew (Andover, MA) and Brita Sigourney (Carmel, CA) to contend for the podium.


  • Maggie Voisin placed fourth. Her third run scored an 84.66: Backside 270 out, frontside 270 out, switch left 270 onto the gap rail, right 720 mute, left 900 tail, switch left 900 mute.



Maggie Voisin
A year ago my goal was to be back at X Games and to ski the best that I could and I did that. The fact that I’ve only been jumping for a month now and I was able to put down that run - I’m just super happy to end up where I did.
