Shaun White proved he’s back, at the least for now as he successfully put down his first run at the Mammoth Grand Prix to secure the win. White looked much more comfortable at his home mountain in Mammoth, than he did in Aspen for X Games, where he placed 11th out of 12 riders. White earned this win with a score of 94.75 which marked his first Grand Prix victory in just over four years.
“I didn’t have the nicest contest at X (Games),” White told U.S. Snowboarding, so I was excited to come here and be the normal me—put some runs down.”
White’s first run scored 94.75 and included: Backside air, frontside double 1080 mute, Cab double 1080 stalefish, frontside 540 stalefish, backside double 1260 Japan, frontside 900.
White is looking to make his fourth Olympic appearance next year in PyeongChang, Korea in superpipe, but not in slopestyle.
