Mitrani’s amazing first run claims U.S. Grand Prix snowboarding halfpipe over Vito

Kelly Clark repeated as champ for the women. Read more.


The spoils went to the young in the ski halfpipe competition on Friday (Dec. 9) at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain. Wing Tai Barrymore, a 19-year-old, took first while 16-year-old rising star Torin Yater-Wallace took second and another 19 year old was third. Read more.
