    Oakley’s Byron Wells had the highest consistency in amplitude, dropping a switch 720, alley oop flatspin 540 to back to back 900 combos to large 540. Qualifying first in the 33 man semi-final with a smooth and stylish run, Wells was overtaken in the finals by Telluride’s Gus Kenworthy and Walter Wood. According to Freeskier Magazine’s Shay Williams, “The doctor was in the house today and Byron showed the world he’s ready to put a hurting on the halfpipe community.”
