Peep some insane slopestyle action from the likes of Torstein Horgmo, Seb Toutant, Roope Tonteri and Chas Guldemond.

We don’t get to hear too much about it this side of the pond, but the Dew Tour is kind of a big deal. Currently a slew of the planet’s best bib boarders are ensconced in Breckenridge where they’re throwing down the madness that passes for competitive snowboarding these days in slope style, pipe and big air. Hey, the prize money or TV coverage must be good as Shaun’s even competing.

Anyway, men’s Slopestyle Semis went down a couple days ago and the riding was white hot. Torstein Horgmo qualified first by crushing the whole shebang with his über tech hangdog style ahead of dudes like Max Parrot, Chas Guldemond, Roope Tonteri, Mark McMorris and Sven Thorgren to name a few. Yesterday was women’s Slopestyle semis, where Jamie Anderson scooped the highest score, and men’s pipe semis, which saw Scotty Lago qualify ahead of a certain S. White. Interesting. Also interesting was Kazu’s second run, in which mid-way through he pulled a slash to revert and then still managed to boost himself way overhead on the next hit. One of the raddest things we’ve seen at a pipe comp in recent years.

As soon as more videos are released we’ll whack em up. Till then, here’s the PR blurb and results from yesterday:

South Lake Tahoe’s Jamie Anderson’s strong first run put her in the top spot going into tomorrow’s final from women’s slopestyle. Anderson threw down solid tricks in her first run such as a switch back 540, a back 180 and Cab 540 gave her a first run score of a 94.25. Anderson’s first run score of a 94.24 was the highest score out of all the riders for the day. Trailing close behind Jamie Anderson was Germany’s Silvia Mittermueller with a 93.00, and Enni Rukajärvi in third with a 92.00.

1. Jamie Anderson, 94.25
2. Silvia Mittermueller, 93.00
3. Enni Rukajärvi, 92.00
4. Spencer O’Brien, 90.00
5. Kjersti Østgaard Buass, 89.00
6. Sarka Pancochova, 87.00

As the day wound down, it was the guy’s turn to take to Breckenridge’s superpipe for the semi-finals of the iON Mountain Championships. Scotty Lago took the top spot, starting his run off with a frontside 540, followed by a backside 900, frontside 1080 double cork, cab 700, frontside 900 inverted nose grab and a backside air. Shaun White finished the contest in second, and Greg Bretz rounded out the top three.

1. Scotty Lago 92.75
2. Shaun White 90.50
3. Greg Bretz 89.00
4. Louie Vito 88.25
5. Brett Esser 86.00
6. Christian Haller 85.50
7. Nathan Johnstone 85.00
8. Taku Hiraoka 83.50
9. Ayumu Hirano 81.50
10. Markus Malin 79.25
