Toyota Supergirl Snow Pro Wraps With US Olympic Team Rider Faye Gulini, And Olympic Gold Medalist Hannah Teter Claiming First Place and the Coveted Supergirl Capes in Boardercross and Halfpipe

Big Bear, CA (March 18, 2018) - ASA Entertainment wrapped two days of action-packed snowboarding contests and live music concerts at the Toyota Supergirl Snow Pro at Bear Mountain Resort this weekend. Hosted by 4-time Olympian and 10-time X-Games Gold Medalist, Lindsey Jacobellis, the event showcased many of the top-ranked snowboarders in the world, including 3-time Olympian Faye Gulini, who took first place in boardercross, and the event's co-host, Hannah Teter, who took first on the halfpipe. Top amateurs competed alongside their heroes in a one-of-a-kind pro-am format that included team competitions in both disciplines that paired the pros with amateur snowboarders, as young as eight years old.

Day one of Supergirl Snow Pro featured the first-ever all-female boardercross (SBX) contest. Designed by Jacobellis, the custom-built pro-level SBX course was created to showcase elite talent, while also providing a platform for young competitors to learn from their heroes. In addition to competing and claiming second place overall, Jacobellis spent much of the event mentoring the next generation of up-and-coming riders.

"This event was my dream come true," said Jacobellis, who worked closely with ASA Entertainment to design the event's formats. "I want to thank ASA, everyone at Big Bear, and all the pros who came to support and mentor these young snowboarders. We had snow, sun, it was gorgeous ... I just couldn't be happier!"

In the pro boardercross contest, the field included US Team members Faye Gulini (1st place), Lindsey Jacobellis (2nd place), Colleen Healey (3rd place), and Meghan Tierney.

"In this event, what's most important is getting the young girls involved and the camaraderie with all the female riders," said Gulini, the Toyota Supergirl Snow Pro SBX winner. "Although I was super excited to cross the line first, I didn't expect it because there were so many talented athletes out here!" 

Supported by both the USSA and the USASA, the event also featured a mini halfpipe pro-am competition with throwback obstacles, rails and jibs that pushed the riders to get creative in their runs. In fact, SBX riders Tierney, Healey, and Gulini all decided to jump in on the action, where Gulini surprised the judges with her innovative runs to reach the podium twice, also taking 3rd place on halfpipe. Second place went to Anna Valentine, with Olympic Gold Medalist, Hannah Teter, earning 1st place and the coveted Supergirl cape.

"I was blown away by the level of riding," said Teeter. "Most of us pipe riders have only been riding super-pipe all year, so for us to come out and do a fun mini-pipe with rails in it was next level. It pushed everyone to think outside the box.  I had no idea I was going to win because everyone was riding so well and throwing down stuff I don't normally see these girls do. I'm super excited to walk away with Supergirl gold!"
