Heading into the afternoon, Jamie put down a solid first run, topping the competition, and her own winning score from the third qualifier, with a 94.8. A pretty sweet ending to a phenomenal day for Anderson.

Ty Walker, who took a vicious crash into the net on the side of the slope course, breaking her helmet in two, didn’t make the podium for qualifier #4, though her results from previous Olympic qualifiers kept her steadfast in second place in the US team qualifying standings. Jessika Jenson is now sitting in third in the standings, with Jordie Karlinski’s second place qualifying finish helping boost her to fourth in US team standings. There is one final qualifier for the women of slope to secure their spot to Sochi, going down Saturday afternoon in Mammoth, with the final US teams being announced on Sunday.
