Louie Vito took 1st place in the season’s first Visa U.S. Halfpipe Grand Prix Saturday, Dec. 10th.  landed back to back doubles and other stylish hits in his run, He also took it to the next level by throwing a frontside double 10, cab double 10, stiffie, back 9 and front 10. According to Vito, it was a nice way to kick off another season.

“I’m really stoked. I’m happy to land a run when I had to and start the season off well,” Vito said. “It’s good to have landed and to be on the podium with two of my best friends.”

Vito took the lead with back-to-back doubles in the 1st run which maintained the lead through the entire competition. Also making the podium was Luke Mitrani  from Mammoth, CA, and Olympic bronze medalist Scotty Lago of Seabrook, NH.  According to Vito, with the first one out of the way, he’s ready for the rest of the competition season.

“I’m happy to be back into contests and to shake those pre contest season jitters out of the way. You get rid of the anxiety and remember the feelings you have up there and you’re ready to move forward,” Vito said.

According to Mitrani, the Copper Mountain weather provided a surprise in the form of heavy snow for the competition day, but the crew working on it maintained it well.

For the women. Kaitlyn Farrington of Sun Valley, ID, continues toward becoming the top female snowboarder. Recently she won silver at the Dew Tour and a gold at Winter X Games Europe, but the Saturday competition marked her first win at a Grand Prix.

“I’m super excited. I was so nervous coming in so I’m just glad to walk away having landed both my runs,” Farrington said. “It feels good to walk away with a win.”

Farrington’s run ran air, backside 9, front 7, cab 7, air to fakie, and she had a big reason to be stoked on it.

“It was the first time that I’ve landed the backside 9, so I was stoked just to try it and land it,” Farrington said. “I worked on it a lot last year and I’m happy it all came together this year. It’s a good way to start out the season.”

NBC will air Sunday’s snowboard halfpipe contest Sunday, Dec 12th at 2 p.m. ET.
