Saturday night was a night of records on Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colo. In front of a Winter X Games single-day record crowd of 41,800, Kelly Clark executed the first ever 1080 in Women’s Snowboard SuperPipe history to capture the gold.
The story of Winter X Games 15 thus far may be the success of the rookies. Saturday night, rookie Alex Schlopy took the top prize in Skiing Big Air and Sunday morning, fellow rookie Enni Rukajarvi took the gold in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle.
With the win, Rukajarvi not only won her first medal, but she is the first female snowboarder from Finland to medal at Winter X Games.
