Cana­dian half­pipe skier Cassie Sharpe opened her World Cup sea­son with a sil­ver medal on Fri­day. Sharpe, from Co­mox, B.C., fin­ished sec­ond at the event with a score of 90.50 to earn her best-ever re­sult at Cop­per Moun­tain, a venue she has called her “neme­sis” for giv­ing her trou­ble in the past. Kelly Sil­daru of Es­to­nia fin­ished first with a score of 93.00 while Amer­i­can Brita Sigour­ney was third with 88.00. Sharpe won gold in half­pipe at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games and capped her 2017-18 World Cup cam­paign with a vic­tory in France. The 26-year-old won two other World Cup com­pe­ti­tions last year and added to her medal haul with a Dew Tour gold and an X Games bronze.
