In the women’s event 12-year-old Estonian prodigy Kelly Sildaru took top honours.

Although she is too young to participate in the upcoming X Games or the World Championships for that matter he win does secure he a place at the Tour finals in La Clusaz.

France’s Coline Ballet Baz claimed second place on home snow.
