Over the course of four days, men's and women's superpipe and slopestyle events transpired (and doubled as an U.S. Olympic Qualifier and Platinum-Level competition on the AFP World Tour), along with an urban-inspired rail jam in downtown Breckenridge known as Streetstyle and the second annual Team Challenge, which saw Armada, Atomic, Faction, Head, K2 and Volkl square off in a battle for sponsor supremacy.

Here's a look the winning runs from each aspect of the event...

On Friday, Alex Ferreira came out swinging to win Men's Superpipe, with Aaron Blunck in second and Kevin Rolland in third.

Later in the day, Canada's very own Cassie Sharpe topped the field in Women's Superpipe, while Marie Martinod scored second and Maddie Bowman took third.

On Saturday, Henrik Harlaut made it two-for-two by winning Men's Slopestyle for his second year in row, with Nick Goepper hot on his heels in second and two-time X Games Aspen gold medalist Oystein Braten in third.

The ladies then took centre stage on Snowpark Technologies' immaculate slopestyle course, where Johanne Killi walked away with the win, with Tess Ledeux in second and Sarah Hoefflin in third.

In Streestyle, Keegan Kibridge, who was awared with Discovery of the Year at iF3 and Breakthrough Performance at Thursday night's Powder Awards, rounded out his week with another victory, while Team Volkl, which was comprised of Hunter Hess (who took on the modified superpipe) and Nick Goepper (who pulled double duty on the jib and jump sections) bested defending champions to close out the show.
