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.

After a hectic freeski season and competing on an injured knee, Monster Energy freeskier Tom Wallisch found some time at his home resort of Park City in Utah to stack some footage before he underwent season-ending surgery. Watch as he displays why—even at half speed—he's still the best in the game.
