Good vibes and plenty of sun were on tap for the men’s halfpipe semis. To say Vail’s pipe was riding nice would be an understatement. Hammers were in high supply with defending US Open Halfpipe Champion Shaun White, Danny Davis, Ben Ferguson, Ayumu Hirano, Scotty James, Jake Pates, and plenty more all throwing down. In the end, only the top ten advance to Saturday’s finals and judging by the caliber of riding so far, it’s sure to be out of control.
No shortage of style in the women’s halfpipe semi-finals. The world’s best are in the mix and making it look easy, including defending halfpipe champion Chloe Kim and eight-time US Open halfpipe winner Kelly Clark. Be sure to catch Saturday’s finals to see who rises to the top and takes the title.
