The Townley brothers recently returned from another successful B.C. series freestyle competition held at Silverstar on Feb. 17–20.

Shey, who is 11 years old, had a strong run in the single moguls coming in second in the super youth category just behind Todd Heard of Mt. Washington. On Sunday, he performed his first competitive 720 to win the bronze medal in the popular slopestyle event held at the terrain park.

Tashi, competing in the youth category, also did well in the single moguls, winning a bronze medal. He went into the second round just behind the leader but got bumped to third after Mitchell Wilson of Whistler tore up the course on his second run.

Tashi competed in two slopestyle events winning the silver medal on Saturday after performing a flat five off the first jump leading into a switch rodeo five off the second.
