The women’s slopestyle snowboarding that we watched today was some of the strongest female riding we’ve seen to date, with Spencer O’Brien putting down the back 9, and cab 900 attempts from Jamie Anderson.
Silje Norendal was back to defend her gold medal from last year, and although she left it until her final run, defend it she did, pipping Anderson to the top spot with a run that included a frontside 720 off the toes, big backside 540 and cab 720.
Kiwi ripper Christy Prior rouned out the podium in third, a stellar showing for her first ever X games appearance.
