COPPER MOUNTAIN, CO (Dec. 11, 2010) – Kaitlyn Farrington (Sun Valley, ID) sustained her ascent toward becoming one of the top female snowboarder who won the season’s first Visa U.S. Halfpipe Grand Prix Saturday. It was the first Grand Prix win for Farrington!

“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.”

Being able to keep her speed enabled Kaitlyn to perform arguably the two best tricks of the day. Farrington followed up her second hit bs 900 corkscrew with a crippler 720. As if this combo wasn’t enough Kaitlyn added a cab seven to the mix to make the win that much more dominant.
