Four winners were declared after only one day of competition at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort Freeride Open last week.

120 skiers and snowboarders were in Revelstoke for the two-day event, however the final day had to be called off due to poor visibility at the resort, meaning judges couldn’t see the venue in North Bowl.

Only the women’s snowboarders were able to complete both runs, meaning that only the runs for day one counted for the other three categories.

Day one took place in the Separate Reality bowl. Louis Panning-Osendarg won the crowded men’s ski field, beating out 39 others with a score of 32.7 — more than a point ahead of his nearest rival.

Kylie Sivell took the women’s ski competition with a score of 29.9, only two-tenths of a point ahead of Jacqueline Pollard.

Kai White won the men’s snowboard event with a score of 33.5.

Camila Brown won the women’s snowboard event with a two-day score of 58.73, less than half a point ahead of second place Randa Shahin.

The event was a three-star qualifier for the Freeride World Tour.
