Jamie Anderson Qualifies First in Slopestyle at the 2018 Burton U.S. Open

Jamie Anderson keeps on a winning track in slopestyle after her performance at the contentious 2018 Winter Olympic slopestyle finals with a first place qualifying run earlier today at the 2018 Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships. A clean run through the rails complete with a backside 540, switch frontside 540, and frontside 720 to finish out the jump section, Jamie scored an 83.7 on her first run and was never topped. Anna Gasser, who snagged gold in the Olympic Big Air debut last month, stomped through the rail section, and had a solid showing in the jumps, but a few inconsistencies knocked her into second with an 80.95. Check out her run below for a full breakdown of scoring and trick selection.



Third place qualifier Julia Marino is on the hunt after missing the podium in PyeongChang, and she is definitely one to watch come Friday. Laying down a solid safety run for third, if she puts down what she has in the hopper, she can most definitely be on top of the podium when it is all said and done.
