WHITEFISH, Mont. -

The community of Whitefish came together to celebrate Maggie Voison's homecoming.

The town of Whitefish welcomed Maggie home with open arms. Crowds of people lined central avenue to welcome Voisin back and she couldn't be happier.

"It's so fun to see that I have such a great town behind me and I'm stoked to come home and get all the love," said Voisin.

The number of people who showed up shows Voisin how many supporters she has in the small community.

"It's nice to see everyone, everyone that supported me throughout my whole journey this session. You know, it's fun to see all the love and support," said Voisin.

It's been quite the journey for Voisin. She broke her right fibula while training shortly before she was supposed to compete in the slopestyle event, but she never let it get her down.

"Obviously, I went and it didn't turn out exactly how I wanted it to be with my injury and all, but I still decided to go out and just enjoy my whole experience there," said Voisin.

Voisin plans to start practicing again once her injury heals, in about three months. But right now, Voisin is looking forward to a little break.

"In this season, they crammed it all in the beginning, you know? It's been such a busy season. It's just so nice, like I said to come home and be able to relax and enjoy and be able to regroup once again," said Voisin.

Voisin says she is looking forward to hanging out with her friends and family and being a normal teenager for awhile.

Voisin was the youngest member on Team USA. She says she is looking forward to competing in 2018.
