NEWRY, Maine — Freestyle skier Simon Dumont is back in Maine for the third annual Dumont Cup at Sunday River.

Dumont, who grew up in Bethel, skied at Sunday River as a kid. As a pro, he has won numerous Winter X Games medals and has become one of the biggest names in freeskiing.

The Dumont Cup brings together amateurs and pros.

The course is located on Sunday River’s Rocking Chair Terrain Park, which was designed by Dumont himself. There is $20,000 in cash and prizes for first, second and third-place finishers
