Danny Kass and Elena Hight ruled the giant Superpipe at Northstar-at-Tahoe for the second straight year as the fourth edition of the Vans Cup at Tahoe wrapped up under sunny blue skies on Sunday afternoon. The guys top three looked a lot like last year with only Louie Vito sliding into second place behind Kass and repeat third place finisher Iouri Podlatchokov. Kass, who also won the inaugural Cup Superpipe in 2005, takes home $20,000 for his efforts on Sunday. For the ladies, it was Hight claiming the $11,000 first place prize ahead of Lizzy Beerman and Kjersti Buaas Oestgaard.
