Mark McMorris (CAN) is the World Snowboard Tour Slopestyle Champion. Dominating all season on the 6Star level, winning both X Games and the Burton US Open, Mark McMorris is the strongest Slopestyle rider on the planet. At the Burton US Open in Vail, Mark finally beat Peetu Piiroinen (FIN) and Torstein Horgmo (NOR) for the Slopestyle Title.
I didn’t know that I won the Tour Championship until I was told in the interview straight after the final, but it’s a real honor to get this award, it means you’re consistent over the season and that gives confidence. I am happy!
The final chapter – World Snowboard Tour Overall Men’s title battle between current champion Stale Sandbech and 5 time winner Peetu Piiroinen. After his Burton US Open results, Peetu is currently ranked number one on the World Snowboard Tour Overall rankings. But with one more Halfpipe contest to go, it will be an exciting battle between Peetu and Stale Sandbech in Norway next week, as the current Champion is not willing to give up his title so easily. Staale commented upon this:
I was one point short of winning the Big Air Championship this season, which was a pity. I have been working really hard and I want to get the Overall title, it’s a great honor.
