Both Ski Halfpipe and Ski Slopestyle are confirmed as Olympic medal events at the Sochi Games in 2014, and it's looking increasingly likely that a Colorado local -- sixteen-year-old Aspenite Torin Yater-Wallace -- could win them both. He won SuperPipe gold in the Winter X Games event in Tignes, France, last month, landed the first-ever switch 1800 in his Slopestyle run at the final stop of the U.S. Grand Prix, also in March, and went three-for-three with podium finishes this year on the Winter Dew Tour, including a SuperPipe win at the Pantech Invitational in Killington, Vermont. But the Olympics are still a couple of years off, and, as the video below shows, for the moment Yater-Wallace is just stoked to be back on his home mountain at Buttermilk, getting some last licks in on the terrain park before closing day this Sunday.

Buttermilk's closing weekend festivities start on Saturday with -- believe it -- Bacon Appreciation Day, and conclude on Sunday with a rail jam competition in the Buttermilk Rail Garden and sets by DJ Naka G and DJ Z Trip as the Red Bull Tour Bus comes through to bid the season adieu.
