Teal Harle wraps up X Games appearance with personal bests

Finished 12th in ski big air, 11th in ski slopestyle

A Campbell River skier is fresh off his best-ever finish at X Games Aspen.

Teal Harle finished 11th in ski slopestyle and 12th in ski big air at the competition.

The X Games is an annual extreme sports event. Harle has competed twice before, finishing 19th in ski slopestyle in 2018 and placing 17th last year.

On his Instagram account Sunday afternoon, Harle said he didn’t ski his best at the competition, but was thankful he got to test drive some new tricks.

“Not my best skiing this week @xgames… Still hand an amazing opportunity to try some new tricks,” he said. “Always humbled to be aprt of this event.”

Harle is having a solid competition season so far, especially on the big air world cup circuit.
