Instead everyone went shredding the powder that came with the bad weather.

In the end the girls got to ride some powder and split the prize money evenly.

For the men, the scores of Wednesday’s Semi-Finals would be counted as the final results, leaving Torstein Horgmo to take center stage on the podium, with Mark McMorris and Sebastien Toutant taking second and third respectively. Torstein said: „Six years ago I broke my back here in Laax at the BEO, now I’m back for the first time and I won, it can’t be better! It has been an amazing week, too bad the weather didn’t allow to ride the finals today, but we all gave our best yesterday.“
These results also count towards the Overall and Slopestyle World Snowboard Tour rankings.

Snowboard Guide rating 9 out of 10 “Excellent snowsure resort with a good long season. The slopes are great for freestylers and freeriders alike, as well as suiting beginners. The resort can be slack at opening lifts and the off-piste gets tracked out within hours of a dump.”
