The youngest man ever to win a world cup event trains in Aspen. Late last month, snowboarder Chris Corning claimed the title at a competition in New Zealand. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen has more.
Corning, 15, made history August 22nd when he grabbed first place in the slopestyle competition at the Audi Quattro Winter Games. Corning credits early practice in New Zealand.
"I got there August fourth, so I had a little time to get my feet under me and learn a new trick. I was feeling really confident," he says.
