Anderson wins Snowjamboree in Canada
QUEBEC CITY, Canada – Jamie Anderson (Meyers) won the ladies’ event at the Snowjamboree, presented by Videotron Mobile, FIS World Cup big air, battling arctic temperatures in downtown Quebec City. Ryan Stassel (Anchorage) was third for the men, scoring his first World Cup big air podium.
For the second time in three days, the big air athletes competed on a man-made scaffolding jump – heading north from Boston’s Fenway Park to Quebec City. This time Anderson won the competition in dominant fashion, beating second-place Katie Ormerod of Great Britain by more than 50 points. Spain’s Queralt Castellet rounded out the podium in third.
“I think the event tonight was awesome,” Anderson said after the competition. “It was really, really cold with our arctic front, but we are winter athletes so we got to perform in crazy weather and I’m just stoked.”
Julia Marino (Westport, Conn.), who won the Big Air at Fenway, was seventh.
For the men, Max Parrot of Canada took home his second big air World Cup win in three days on the jump he helped to design. His fellow countryman Tyler Nicholson was second and Stassel, who competed for the U.S. in slopestyle at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, finished a respectable third.
Brett Moody (Anchorage) took seventh while Brandon Davis (Mammoth Lakes) was 25th.
