Jacobellis, meanwhile, remained on a tear picking up her second title of the weekend. The Olympic silver medalist has won two of three World Cup SBX events, is two-for-two in the Jeep King of the Mountain and won the X Games so far this season.

"It felt great. I was really riding well so I was really happy with the way I was putting the course together," Jacobellis said. "I felt like I had great starts all day and I'm really happy with how things have come together for me."

Canadian Michelle Brodeur came in at second and Kim Krahulec (Silverthorne, ID) finished third.

Palmer, who won the Jeep King of the Mountain SBX in Squaw Valley, CA, this weekend, was in great spirits after what he considered to be a great day of racing for him.

"It was good. I did well for how I felt this morning," Palmer said. "I was slow in qualifying but I kind of had a gift in the first one. I started riding better and better and I had what it takes to win but I couldn't beat the Wescott today. He smoked us and he deserves it."

The Tamarack event, part of the Visa Snowboardcross Series, is the only SBX stop on the Chevy Grand Prix. The Grand Prix wraps up March 15-16 in Killington, VT with a halfpipe and slopestyle finale. SBX riders will be back in action with a pair of World Cups in Korea and Japan the next two weekends, before heading to Lake Placid, NY Mar. 1-3 for the Visa U.S. Snowboarding Cup.
