The Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships at Breckenridge, Colorado kicked off with Women’s Freeski Superpipe Semi-Final, in order to set the stage for a week full of great competition.

The semi-final consisted of twelve skiers each taking two runs with the best score counting in order to place and move on to the finals this Friday which will only include the top six athletes.

Following a few spills, minor wind delays and big tricks it was Brita Sigourney that qualified first for finals with the top score from semis. Sigourney’s run consisted of an alley-oop 180, left 900, alley-oop 540, left 540, right 540 and a left 720.

"It feels so great to win today. I went way past my expectations. This is my first comp coming back off a knee injury and I am just so pumped to be here again. The new one-stop format adds a lot more pressure but it is really fun.”
