On Saturday, March 5 riders unleashed their pipe and slopestyle skills in Mammoth’s Unboud Terrain Park for the final Paul Mitchell Progression Session of the season. Many of snowboarding’s “A” listers were in attendance to compete for their share of the $200,000 prize purse! US Olympic Team members Louie Vito, Greg Bretz, Kelly Clark and Gretchen Bleiler were among a few.

Local favorite Chaz Guldemond (Reno, NV) and Jamie Anderson (South Lake Tahoe, CA) put together incredible slopestyle runs to win the Paul Mitchell Progression Session, while Matt Ladley (Steamboat Springs, CO) and Kelly Clark (Mt. Snow, VT) took home win’s in pipe.

In the men’s competition, Spencer Shaw (Stratton Mountain, VT) led until Chaz Guldemond (Reno, NV) swooped in for the win during the last run of the competition. Jamie Anderson (South Lake Tahoe, CA) led the women’s competition out of the gate, throwing a back 3 that set her apart from the group of women competitors. Her second run was a victory lap, putting together another backside 3 and some huge airs.
