There was no U.S. podium sweep in men’s freeski slopestyle this year, but Nick Goepper ensured that the country got another medal.

The Sochi bronze medalist scored a 93.6 with a clutch third and final run to move into second place and take the silver medal in PyeongChang.

Norway’s Oystein Braaten won the gold medal with a 95.0 on his first run, and Canada’s Alex Beaulieu-Marchand secured bronze with a 92.4.

Gus Kenworthy, who was nursing a broken thumb, finished 12th.
