Local Freestyle skier David Wise won the Aspen Open Superpipe on Friday. Wise beat out 60 other skiers for his first career victory in a major professional event.
Wise had the best score in the Semifinals, then won the event with a score of 90.16 in the Finals.
Wise took second place last year at the same event. That was the first time he'd ever placed in the top three.
The Wooster High School graduate is a four time National Superpipe Champion.
He returns to his home mountains when the best skiers and snowboarders in the world compete in the Dew Tour at Northstar-At-Tahoe on February 19-22, 2009.
