    I honestly think that Sage trains harder than the other competitors, and that shows. Dude is an athlete.

    This should be done in jam format in my opinion. Like a group of friends lapping a chair on a pow day. You keep going till you get tired, snow gets all tracked out, or the lift stop spinning. Top 3 or 5 move on and not this one guy vs other guy thing…

    That would be pretty cool. They'd still have to go somewhat spaced apart, but I think some would enjoy that format, most likely Danny Davis

    Baldface is up now. Watch Travis's first run and Blake Paul's. One's an 88 and the other is a 50. The 88 happens to belong to the guy paying the judges.

    Kinda fun to watch, stop calling it a competition.

    I caught Elena Hights run on the 'gram. Thought she put down a tight run, actually like hers better than the young lady who won 1st but what do i know.

    Riding was awesome but holy cow the superlatives from the announcer dude.

    Yeah, the announcers were exaggerating just a little bit, eh? That said, it was pretty killer riding for a comp. I wish all comps could hold until conditions were similar.

    once you get used to the natural selection routine of interviews and sponsored bs, you just hover over the progress bar til you see the next rider in the start gate. It goes pretty quickly then.

    Agreed. I watched a bit of it live, then stopped and waited for it to be on replay so I could skip straight to the drop ins.

    Great concept. Shame the weather didn’t hold for finals.
