Shaun White, Kelly Clark claim halfpipe wins in Winter Dew Tour Nike Open in Breckenridge

Some things never seem to change. Shaun White’s dominance in snowboard halfpipe is one of them, which he reaffirmed on Saturday (Dec. 17) with a victory after only four days on his board. Or at least that’s he says in this ESPN story. See how Louie Vito and the rest of the field finished.

A familiar name also won on Saturday in the women’s halfpipe snowboard competition, with Kelly Clark just nipping Gretchen Blieler. Read more.

In the slopestyle competition, Gjermund Braaten surprised a loaded men’s field for the win while Spencer O’Brien claimed the win in women’s slopestyle. Read more.

Look here for all results for snowboarders and skiers in superpipe and slopestyle.
