The two plankers got their chance in the Eagle Superpipe today and wow, did they ever show off their skills. The ladies' led things off and the U.S.A.'s Maddie Bowman showed that wins in Copper and XGames were no fluke and took her third straight Gold with a 85.2 on her first run.

Ayana Onozuka of Japan followed closely behind with a 84.4 while Virginie Faivre of Switzerland filled out the Ladies' podium with an 82.8. Full women's results availble here.

The men's competition wound up tightly bunched, with all three men on the podium scoring in the 93's. The U.S.A. got both the top two spots with David Wise showing why he secured XGames gold and scoring a 93.8 and Torin Yater-Wallace just two tenths of a point back at 93.6 France's Kevin Rolland, who always seems to excel in the Eagle Superpipe (finished 2nd in the 2011 FIS World Ski Championships here) was just behind at 93. Full men's results available here.

We put together a stairset to match the one on the Sochi Winter Games slopestyle course. It looks like practice makes perfect.
The Sochi Games are just days away, and while we'll be rooting hard for every Team USA athlete - from the curlers to the figure skaters - we'll be cheering especially hard for 2 athletes in particular: because they're our very own! Slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg and slopestyle freeskier Joss Christensen are both Park City locals and both part of "I Ride Park City" All Stars. Both will be in medal contention, and we couldn't be prouder to have them as representatives to the world both of our mountain and their hometown of Park City.
There's no right or wrong way to hit this thing.
The Pole Jam will let you get silly in every which way.
We open November 23rd and we hope you guys are ready to shred! Come check out the sweet features this weekend off of 3 Kings Lift. It's all about those early season hammers!

The season might be winding down at Park City Mountain Resort, but that doesn't mean the park isn't in full force. Some might even say that the park is the best it has been all winter. Watch as Blaze Kotsenburg, Griffin Seibert, Caleb Flowers, Ozzy Henning, Spencer Schubert, Scotty Arnold, Scott Stevens, and Brandon Hobush show you just how much fun a slushy park and pipe can really be.
After completing all 9 stops, the guys at Transworld named us the Premier Resort of this year's TransAm series - and we're stoked on it. Get a look at what the fuss is all about.
