Big congratulations are in order for Swany Gloves-sponsored athlete Brita Sigourney, who qualified for the finals in Women’s Freeski Superpipe by winning her Semi-Final on Thursday at Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships.

Brita’s run consisted of an alley-oop 180, left 900, alley-oop 540, left 540, right 540 and a left 720. Got all that? The  finals in Women’s Freeski Superpipe will be at 12:30 p.m. MT Friday in Breckenridge.

Want to meet Brita? She’ll be at a party sponsored by Swany Gloves at 8 p.m. TONIGHT (Dec. 13) at the classic Gold Pan Saloon in Breckenridge. There will also be giveaways. Learn more.

  • Men’s Superpipe Semi-Final: Scotty Lago took first, followed by Shaun White and Greg Bretz, a Breckenridge local. Swany-sponsored athlete Zack Black gave it one heck of a run in the super competitive field, but finished 11th, an agonizing one position out of the 2 p.m. MT finals on Saturday.
