Saturday morning dawned cold, but with crystal clear skies that led into a perfect day for the first ever World Cup halfpipe competition to be held in North America. The Eagle Superpipe was immaculately groomed and kept up it's reputation as one of the best pipes in the world with both athletes and coaches raving about it.
In the Ladies' competition, American Angeli VanLaanen, took home the first place prize with an amazing 2nd run that moved up up past all her competitors to the top of the podium. While, in the Men's competition, France's Kevin Rolland impressed with a variety of high-flying technical tricks including a double back-flip!
(edit - forgot to link to the results!)
Thanks to everyone who helped put on this great event - in particular the volunteers, terrain park and race department teams!
