Congrats to Squaw boy Kevin O’Meara on 3rd Place! Kevin rose from 5th place after day one to end up 3rd after it was all said and done.
Tahoe boys took places 2 and 3 as Josh Diaek from Kirkwood was the 2nd place skier.
Watch Kevin and Josh kill it in Chile on August 21st, 2011.
Kevin is a dangerous shredder who consistantly puts up the gnarliest lines at Squaw. Next time you see a track and you think to yourself “Who the Flying F#$k put down that burl-sauce infested radness?” – you can pretty much be sure it was Kevin. The guy has skied Sacrifice over 10 times alone. How many times have you skied Sacrifice?

I’m hoping this placement gets him fired up enough to get on tour, dominate, and win the FWT for Squaw Valley USA. It’s been a while since Squaw has had a FWT champ.
Kevin and his cousin Keith run a ski manufacturing company called Praxis in Truckee, CA. Drew Tabke won the FWT last year on Praxis skis. They make custom skis that are ideal for powder and hard charging. Check out their style here: Praxis Skis
Kevin is also a coach for the Squaw Valley Freeride Team. Yeah, if you want your kid to be a ripper, having Kevin coach him just might help…
