Paul Mitchell Progression Session Big Air Wraps Grand Prix Day #1
A big first day of competition at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix Halfpipe in the superpipe was capped off in the biggest way possible - the Paul Mitchell Progression Session Big Air. Snowboarders and freeskiers threw hammers for over 90 minutes, trying to outdo each other on a massive 85-foot jump while a hyped crowd watched below.
Riders impressed the judges and crowd alike, showing everyone exactly why the event is called the Progression Session.
