The Canadian men’s team was looking as unstoppable as ever, with all 7 Canucks making it through to the finals. Sebastien Toutant, Mark McMorris and Max Parrot posted the top three scores of the day, with Seb Toots’ best consisting of a cab 1260 nosegrab, frontside 1080 mute and a backside triple 14 indy on the kicker line.

Finnish ripper Enni Rukajärvi smashed it in the women’s semi finals, stomping a run that included a frontside 720 tailgrab, backside 540 stale and a cab 720 indy. She’ll face tough competition in Friday’s finals from the likes of Jamie Anderson, Anna Gasser and Hailey Langland!
