Following the windy semi-final earlier this week at the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships, the stacked list of skiers for the Women's Freeski Superpipe Final brought the heat to Breckenridge as these women went all out for their chance at a Dew Cup.
With only the elite six skiers making it into the finals, each brought their best tricks to the pipe but it was Brita Sigourney that had all eyes on her as she qualified first with the highest score from semis.
Similar to the semis, each skier in the finals received two runs down the pipe with only the best score counting toward the end goal. After the first round of runs, it was Sigourney again gracing the top spot.
With only two skiers left to ride, it was teammate Maddie Bowman left to dethrone Sigourney, but following a miscalculation Bowman took a spill in the pipe and it was officially Sigourney's Dew Cup.
Sigourney took one final victory lap before claiming her trophy from atop the podium. Sigourney's first, and best, run included an alley-oop 180, a left 900, alley-oop 540, left 540, right 540 and capped it off with a left 720.
"The pipe [at Breckenridge] is so nice, it's definitely one of my favorites I've ever skied. The atmosphere here is always great, even though this is the first competition and there were a lot of nerves going on, the people are great and it is such a big event now with just the one stop – it was great!"
Fortunately for Bowman, she had already secured herself a spot on the podium and was able to leave the competition with the second place position overall. As for the third place spot, Roz Groenewoud would round out the podium making for the same exact top three as we saw in semis.
