At Phoenix Snow Park, Switzerland’s Sarah Hoefflin won the women’s slopestyle skiing event. Hoefflin edged teammate Mathilde Gremaud for gold by posting a score of 91.20 in her final run. “I suppose I got pretty lucky,” Hoefflin said. “I ski better when there is no wind, and I struggle with the wind. We had wind in the practice and for my final run I was so relaxed because I knew what the speed was and usually if I know the speed I know the tricks.” Isabel Atkin of Britain took bronze with a score of 84.60 in her final run. Defending Olympic champion Dara Howell crashed twice during qualifying and didn’t advance.
