Zoi Sadowski-Synnott Wins Gold at X Games Aspen Slopestyle

It was a snowy day in Aspen for women’s slopestyle finals at X Games, but that didn’t slow the crew down as Zoi Sadowski-Synnott, Jamie Anderson, and Laurie Blouin took the podium.

Zoi landed one of the most technical runs, ever in a women’s slopestyle contest. Going into her second run in first place after a solid opening run, but with Jamie Anderson left to drop so no room to relax, Zoi upped the ante, going switch back nine, front double ten, and back ten. Back-to-back tens. Wow. (Also can’t not mention the front blunt 450 out in the rail section.) Watch the full run below.

In the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, Zoi made her presence known during big air, exploding onto the scene, and in the past four years, she has become a force to be reckoned with in competition–both in slopestyle and big air, as well as in Natural Selection.

Jamie Anderson, of course, has long set the bar when it comes to standing on the podium and as seen at the Grand Prix at Mammoth, she is still dropping new tricks and pushing the rest of the field. Sitting in eighth place going into her third run, Jamie dropped the hammer, going front ten, backside rodeo, and cab double ten on the jumps. With that, Jamie took second place and her record twentieth X Games medal. Twenty medals. Holy. Here is her run.

In third place, Canadian Laurie Blouin gave us a preview of what to expect in Beijing in a few weeks with a switch backside seven, cab double underflip, and frontside double ten on the jumps, further securing her position as one of the best in the line up at any contest. Watch her full run below.

First place – Zoi Sadowski-Synnott
