Dew Tour Championships ski pipe finals

The weather couldn't have been better for the Winter Dew Tour ski pipe finals today at Snowbasin Resort in Ogden, Utah. Shining sun and warm temps made the pipe soft and everyone was sending it, hoping to make Dew Tour history. Read on for a recap from Newschoolers.

The final competition of the ski superpipe side of things at the Winter Dew Tour Toyota Championships went down this afternoon in a big, big way at Snowbasin, Utah. After an amazing show under the lights last night in prelims the top qualified athletes were pumped for today's sunshine and big crowd. Up first were the top six ladies from yesterday, who were all more than ready to strut their stuff for a shot at the podium.

Rosalind Groenewoud was looking as solid as usual throughout this morning's practice, but on her second hit right 900 she couldn't hold the transition and fell to her side. She had to be carted down as a result of what looked to be a shoulder or collarbone injury. We wish you a quick recovery Roz!

As for the rest of the ladies, there was no disappointment to be found, as the top five all had scores of 80 and above. Canadian Keltie Hansen was super excited after landing her second run, during which she linked together a first hit right 540 into a left 540, followed by a big right 900 midway through her run and finished it all off with a left 720, scoring an 80.50 and fifth place.
