Olympic athletes Torah Bright (AUS) and Mason Aguirre (USA) threw down huge first runs to win the snowboard division at the fourth annual World Superpipe Championships at Park City Mountain Resort. Eight women and eleven men competed for a piece of the $90,000 prize purse in a best of three-run format.

Bright’s first run score of 93.0 points was good enough to give her the win over second place finisher Soko Yamaoka of Japan by 7.3 points. Meg Pugh, who secured a spot here by competing at the World Superpipe Qualifiers in Mt. Bachelor and Boreal, came in third.

Aguirre separated himself from the field on his first run by scoring 90.0, which bested second place finisher Kevin Pierce by 8.3 points. Jack Mitrani came in third with 76.0 points.

On Sunday, March 12 a strong field of skiers will have their chance to become the World Superpipe Champions. The field includes X-Games winners Tanner Hall, Simon Dumont and Frenchman Laurent Favre. The competition begins at 12:00 pm. The event is free to the public and will include live music, food, and giveaways.
