The sun was peaking its rays through Saturday morning, shimmering over the course at Mount St Louis as Billabong Flaunt It kicked off another season of all girls events. The beats were jammin’, the vibes were hype, and all of the girls definitely brought their stoke.
Ontario’s very own Samm Denena slayed the Slopestyle course in commanding style. Her run started with a front side tail press on the down bar followed by an under flip 540 melon grab on the first jump, then linked up a cab under flip melon on the second jump and topped off her run with a gap to nose slide on the down flat down. Mount St. Louis local, Baily McDonald scored herself a well-deserved second place and all the way from Breckenridge, Colorado, Michelle Zeller in third place.
Fueled up and ready for the afternoon session the girls destroyed the rail jam course, which was comprised of three options; a down flat down rail, giant rainbow rail, or flat tube. Samm Denena cleaned up again with a super technical trick on the down flat down, a front side 50-50 to front side 180 switch up, backside 180 out. Baily McDonald held onto second place with a switch boardslide down the double kink in and Quebec’s Elizabeth Hoskins finished in third. 10-year-old Kaitlyn Adams from Ohio earned the Billabong Girls Grom Award with her fearless gap to 50-50 on the double kink.
