The Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships closed out Sunday with Mark McMorris winning his second Dew Cup of the weekend at the Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle Finals. McMorris secured the win with his second run, toughing it out through the weather to gain a score of 95.00. He began with a frontside lipslide to fakie on the first rail feature, followed by a hardway cab 270 gap to the kinked rail. He pulled a cab 900 double cork and frontside 720 on the first set of jumps, and a backside 270 over the rainbow box. McMorris closed out his run with a double wildcat and a huge backside 1260 double cork on the same jump where he won last night’s Big Air contest.

“It feels awesome,” said McMorris on his Dew Tour success. “I just can’t believe everything worked out the way it did. I just rode the way I needed to and everything aligned. The level of riding was insane. I’m just so happy.”

Prior to Men’s Slopestyle, the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships went off on Friday, November 14 with women’s Snowboard Slopestyle Finals. The top female riders in the world battled it out to the final seconds of competition when Jamie Anderson landed a clean last run to take the Dew Cup. She began her run with a half cab tailpress on the tier drop box, followed by a gap to tailslide to fakie on the kinked rail, a cab 540, frontside 700, a backside tailslide to fakie on the rainbow, and a switch backside 540. She ended the run with a huge backside 540, managing a clean landing to place ahead of Spencer O’Brien, who finished in second place. Enni Rukajarvi rounded out the podium in third.

“I’m so thankful to be in this event,” said Anderson, following her win. “The course was great. The contest was really fun, and I’m just so happy to be here.”
