Sarah Burke Wins Women’s Freeski Pipe Finals

By Shay William Freeskier Magazine – Sarah Burke took up a familiar spot after her one year competition hiatus due to her back injury. After going down on a right 540 on her first run, she changed her game up and stomped 540, 720 and 900 bringing her a nice payday.

Jen Hudak, yesterday’s top qualifier, rode hard her first run, taking that 540, 720 and alley oop 540 into first after her first run. But on her 2nd run, she landed a bit backseat on her 900, in effect killing that run. Roz G, who had the biggest straight airs of the women’s event, took that amplitude and a solid 540 and 360 to switch hit all the way to the bank.

Anais Caradeux, Virginie Faivre and Jessica Cumming laid down some solid runs, showing off their skills for the sizable Snowbasin crowd. However all three were missing the 900 or the amplitude that Groenewoud took into the pipe today, thus putting them at the bottom of the finals rankings. Regardless, the women put on a show for their sole Winter Dew Tour stop.
