While Erika Vikander (USA) emerged victorious in the women’s snowboard category, it was Canadian Katie Anderson who put together a strong run in tough conditions with a smooth entrance and several big airs. Anderson won’t be advancing to the World Tour finals, and said this might be her final year on the circuit. Austrian Manuela Mandl finished in third.
