SNOWBASIN -- In just his second year as a professional, Justin Morgan has already had a taste of what every competitive snowboarder strives for.
At January's Winter Dew Tour stop in Killington, Vt., Morgan did well enough in the snowboard slopestyle event to take third, earning him his first trip to the podium as a pro. In getting there, he beat out several veterans and headliners of the sport -- names like Chas Guldemond, Mark Mcmorris and Danny Davis.
Morgan is originally from upstate New York, where he cut his snowboarding teeth at the small resort of West Mountain. He is based in Breckenridge, Colo. these days, but trains with the Wasatch Project, an Ogden-based group that helps get young snowboarders and skiers ready for competition.
