Clara Lantz captured her third straight championship at the IFSA Alyeska Junior Freeride Classic on Saturday, a day when top teenage competitors stomped their landings and displayed strong, controlled skiing and riding on Alyeska’s South Face.

Lantz, an Alyeska Freeride Team skier, won the 15-18 age class for girls by skiing a similar line to what she executed to grab the early lead Friday. She skied a smooth line through the Firstpoint section and then stomped the Alder Cliff on Eagle Rock.

The boys 15-18 titles went to skier Benjamin Erickson of the Alyeska Freeride Team and snowboarder Aidan McGinley of Washington’s Stevens’ Pass Freeride Team.
