|BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (Dec. 15) - Elena Hight (South Lake Tahoe, CA) wins the Pipestyle jam session Saturday night. |
Versus will air the Paul Mitchell Progression Session on Jan. 13 at 5 p.m. ET.
"It was really fun. It's always a good time underneath the lights," Hight said. "They had some rails and boxes set up on the side of the pipe so that made it different and fun. I'm glad we got to come out and play a little bit."
Riders competing in the Paul Mitchell Progression Session pipestyle night exhibition wowed the thousands of fans that braved the cold to witness the progressive jam session in Breckenridge's Freeway Terrain Park pipe.
Judges awarded Humphreys the Rip It Trick of the Day for his incredible Miller Flip, a type of hand plant rarely seen in halfpipe competition. To make it even more difficult, he did it on the vert extended flat rail that is 30 inches above the lip of the pipe.
The Chevrolet U.S. Snowboarding Grand Prix resumes Feb. 8-10 in Tamarack, ID, with a halfpipe and snowboardcross, before wrapping-up the tour in Killington, VT, March 15- 16 where overall champions will be crowned.
