EARLIER FRIDAY: It had been three years since Shaun White won gold at Winter X in snowboard slopestyle, an event in which even the superstar admitted he was behind the times.

Not any more. White had runs of 95 and 97 to not only catch up with the rest of the riders but to easily win his second gold medal in as many days on Friday (March 16) at Winter X Tignes. Watch how he did it at ESPN.

THURSDAY: What did you expect? One day after he was the top qualifier (with jet lag and no practice in the pipe), Shaun White won gold in Superpipe on Thursday (March 15) at Winter X Tignes. Watch video of his winning run.

Tom Wallisch has been the man to beat for much of the season in men’s ski slopestyle. That didn’t stop Bobby Brown, who knows a thing or two about being the “man to beat,” from snagging gold on Thursday. Watch the video at ESPN.

WEDNESDAY: Who needs practice? Jet lag? Forget about it. Shaun White arrived at Winter X Games Tignes on Wednesday (March 14) and went straight to the pipe, where he qualified first for the finals on Thursday (watch it at 1:30 EDT on ESPN2/3). He’s got good company: Louie Vito stands second and other qualifiers include  Iouri Podladtchikov. Watch the video.

The incomparable Kelly Clark won the women’s Superpipe over Elana Hight and a talented field. Meet the rest of the podium and watch the video. EarlierCanada’s Kaya Turski won her third consecutive Winter X Games Tignes gold medal at Women’s Ski Slopestyle.
