Mother nature cooperated again this morning, allowing the sun to shine and Torstein Horgmo to take the highest step of the podium during slopestyle finals. Joining him at the top was none other than Jamie Anderson, pulling ahead of Breck winner Spencer O’Brien on her last run to take first.

Jenny Jones strung together a clean backside 3 to frontside 5 line on the last two jumps to set the bar early on. Spencer O’Brien stepped it up with a backside 5 on the big side of the last jump, seemingly on route to taking her second Dew Tour stop of the season, but Jamie Anderson foiled those plans with a last minute run that dropped many a jaw. Stomping a switch backside 3 on the top jump, a switch boardslide to regular on the cannon box, and a huge frontside 5 on the last jump, Anderson took over the lead with only O’Brien left to drop. Falling on the same backside 5 that gave her the lead earlier in the morning, O’Brien stayed in second place, leaving Anderson in her top spot.

Scotty Lago stomped one of his signature switch backside rodeos in his first run to get the finals going, finishing his run with backside to switch backside 9’s on the final two jumps. Lago ended the day in 5th, one spot behind Breck’s young spin doctor Eric Willet, who awed the crowd with the first double cork of the day; a backside rodeo so nice he did it twice. Mikkel Bang showed off the incredible style that he is becoming known for at just 18 years young, barely missing the podium in the tour’s second stop. Norway was well represented on the podium today even without Mikkel; Andreas Wiig came in third for a run that showcased a smooth frontside 10 on the last hit. Shaun White surprised everyone with a backside rodeo off the cannon box, but in the end the 21-year-old Norwegian thwarted his plans for world domination. Torstein landed an insane switch backside 12 on the last jump of his first run. This was probably the trick that clinched the win, and rightfully so. It’s one thing to spin around three and a half times, it’s another thing to make it look as good as he can.
