The slopestyle well shaped by the Gap Snowpark crew, with a down rail, two kickers and a rail set at the end, gave to every rider the chance to impress the judge. Best run of three counted for the ranking of the event.

Thanks to the sunny day and the good vibe rookies and groms showed a great level.
Local hero Antonia Yanez resulted as best girl with solid 360 on the kickers. In the groms category Kaito Hamada laid down the best run, with a fs3 and a huge bs7, followed by Julian Cortes and Alvaro Yanez.
Keita Inamura confirmed is good condition with an impressive run, bstail 270out on the first rail, fs7 and bs10 on the kickers and 270in fs board slide on last rail set. Behind him, as second in rookie category, came Federico Chiaradio from Argentina stomping cab5 and fs7, on third position team mate from Argentina, Pedro Bidegain.
