For starters, Billy Spencer won the WORLD slalom-trick-overall titles and the MASTERS slalom title at age 13. That was easy, so he quit to focus on his football.


Leroy Burnett won the Masters and set a World Record while in the Boys division.

    Billy Spencer age 13. . . (didn't intend to double post ) Its more fun to tell if you've seen them ski in person. I was watching Billy Spencer from the pickup boat when he skied at the 1964 Nationals in Webster Massachusetts. So Boys must have skied right after the Men's event. As expected his score was more than a full pass higher than Joker Osborn who won in Men's division.

    I know Michale Briant won W Tricks US Masters in 2007. I can't recall if she was 17 or 18.

    @drew I believe your son is the youngest skier near the open-men top in slalom. Have the pros put slalom scores out of reach for Boys and Girls divisions, or am I missing somebody ?

    Its my impression that the good slalom skiers and the top slalom skiers weren't so far apart decades ago, as in the era of Kris LaPoint, Billy Spencer and Leroy Burnett. Global competition and modern skis ?
