Dearborn County was represented well during Nick Goepper’s first appearance at the winter games.

The 19-year-old, Hidden Valley native competed in the men’s ski slopestyle and fell during the first two qualifying runs, but turned it in his second run scoring 87.00.

The United States swept the event with Joss Christensen earning gold and and Gus Kenworthy getting silver in the event.

The competition will be televised on NBC at 8p.m. Thursday. A viewing party will also be held at Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg, the same place Goepper used to ski from age 5 to 15.
