At his home resort, rising 13-year-old snowboarding star Fynn Bullock-Womble finished in second place in the highly-competitive Boys Snowboard Breaker 12-13 division at last week’s annual United States of America Snowboard and Freeski Association Snowboard Championships at Copper Mountain Resort.

Bullock-Womble tallied 8,780 total points in the overall snowboard competition, behind 2018 champion Valentino Guseli, who’s regarded as Australia’s next great snowboard phenom.

Bullock-Womble, who is originally from Mebane, North Carolina, now lives at Copper Mountain and rides for Ski and Snowboard Club Vail. Guseli earned the competitive second-place finish on the strength of his slopestyle championship, second-place finish (behind Guseli) in the halfpipe and third-place finish in the giant slalom event — Guseli also won the giant slalom.

Bullock-Womble also finished in fourth place in boardercross, and ninth in slalom.
