Laurie Blouin, shown receiving her silver medal in slopestyle snowboarding at the Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, last month, landed on the podium at this weekend’s big air event in Quebec City.

As the Snowboard & Ski Jamboree street festival wrapped up at the Îlot Fleurie on Sunday afternoon, local snowboarder and Olympic silver medalist in slopestyle snowboard Laurie Blouin had a scheduled autograph session. Only one problem – no one seemed to know where it was. “Wherever the people are,” shrugged a member of the event’s communication team.
