Mahler came in with plenty of hype thanks to standout results in European city big-air competitions last fall, and he lived up to expectations. He secured technical grabs and stuck the switch double misty 1440 that Brown used to win WX Big Air gold in 2010.
“A dream came true for me,” said Mahler, who many consider a top contender for the 2014 Olympic slopestyle gold medal. “I’m super stoked right now. I can’t believe that I got the podium.”
