The weather finally cleared at Mammoth Mountain for Maddie Mastro to snag third place in the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix halfpipe. Bea Kim finished just off the podium in fourth place for the women, while Chase Josey was fourth for the men. 

After a few days of wind and heavy snowfall, the weather window opened on Saturday for the men and women to compete in the halfpipe finals, after putting down qualifications on Tuesday.

Mastro put down a strong second run to bump teammate Bea Kim to fourth place. Bea Kim finished in the top four in all four World Cups. Japanese riders Mitsuki Ono took first place and Sena Tomita second. 

Kinsley White was eighth, her first top 10 in a World Cup. Chloe Kim, fresh off an X Games gold medal, could not put down a clean run and finished 10th. 

On the men’s side, Josey finished fourth, following a heavy-hitting Japanese podium sweep. Former Hydro Flask U.S. Snowboard Team athlete Louis Vito, who now competes for Italy, finished fifth—an impressive feat for the 35 year old veteran.

Yuto Totsuka won the event, with his teammates Ruka Hirano and Kaishu Hirano in second and third, respectively.  

Rounding out the Hydro Flask U.S. Snowboard Team, Levko Fedorowycz finished 11th and Kade Martin 14th. With the World Cup tour wrapping up in the United States after Copper and Mammoth, Josey and Mastro were named national champions in halfpipe.

Next, the halfpipe team leaves California before the atmospheric river dumps feet of snow on Mammoth Mountain and heads to Calgary, Canada for their final World Cup of the season.
