Winter Dew Tour: Men’s & women’s halfpipe semi-final results

Women's Snowboard Superpipe Semifinals went off early this morning under bluebird skies in Breckenridge. Maddy Schaffrick came out on top with a run that began with a frontside air into a backside air, front 720, Haakon flip, stalefish, alley-oop 360, ending with a stylish switch backside 540.  The Colorado native's score of 88.75 blew away the competition.  Gretchen Bleiler (83.75) and Queralt Castellet (78.00) finished in second and third, respectively. The top five semi-finalists will compete in the Superpipe Finals tomorrow against Kelly Clark.

Men's Snowboard Superpipe followed the women's contest with a strong line-up that offered no shortage of excitement to a hyped crowd.  Shaun White and Iouri Podlatchikov battled it out with near-perfect runs. Shaun began his run by boosting out of the pipe for a huge backside air, into a frontside double cork 10, a cab 10, a frontside inverted 5 and a backside 9, ending with an alley-oop backside rodeo.  I-Pod came up just short with a score of 96.00.  Kazu Kokubo rounded out the top 3, scoring an 88.75.  The top nine semi-finalists will compete in Superpipe Finals tomorrow against Steve Fisher, JJ Thomas and Louie Vito.
